On Friday 26th June, the school library hosted the final of our second Primary Book Mastermind.

Stradbroke, Worlingworth, Wilby, Fressingfield and Laxfield Primary Schools all took part and fielded the winners of their school heats. The contestants had chosen to answer questions on Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan, Precious and the Mystery of the Missing Lion by Alexander McCall Smith, Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets by J.K Rowling, The Secret Hen House Theatre By Helen Peters and Middle School: How I Survived Bullies, Broccoli and Snake Hill by James Patterson. The standard, once again, was very high and there was little between them.

Then followed the General Knowledge round in which the audience also had an opportunity to take part. I was particularly impressed that all the spelling questions were answered correctly – this bodes well for High School!

The winner was Tom Smyth from Stradbroke Primary who had read Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan, who was presented with his personal medal and trophy for the school by Mrs Phillips, the Deputy Head. She went on to thank everyone for taking part; pointing out how valuable it is to read books. Each competitor received a certificate of participation.

It was a fun occasion with the competitors and their supporters all showing huge enthusiasm for reading. It was also a great opportunity for the children to familiarise themselves with the High School and our library.

I look forward to this continuing to be an annual event.
