A great day yesterday, fighting it out in the Library to see who are the greatest Bookatrons in Y7. 12 teams of 4 with some great names shared their knowledge of Tom Gates, Hunger Games, Harry Potter and David Walliams and pondered over well known titles produced in different languages. All washed down with Polyjuice Potion, caramel wafers, prawn cocktail crisps and Bogtrotter cake!
With a tie between 3 teams the winners were chosen after guessing how many millions of copies of the Hunger Games have been sold since it was first published in 2008. The Pygmy Puffs were the closest with 7 million (but still way off the actual 65+million copies!!) and so our ultimate winners, with The Shakespearians and The Bookies close behind.
BIG thanks to the English Department for joining us and providing readings for the David Walliams round, to our 6th form Assistants who kept the scores and to our Headmaster for announcing the winners wearing Christmas Tree glasses!
Hope you all get a good book in your stocking . Seasons Readings
