Hereward team into semi-final of national quiz competition
A team of children at Hereward Primary School, Loughton, have won their heat in the National Quiz-Club Championships for Primary Schools held in Forest Gate.
Remarkably, the three Hereward teams came first, second and third with the winning team, consisting of Karis-Joy (Captain - Year 6), Rhys (Year 5), Rachel (Year 4) and Beniamin (Year 3) qualifying for the national semi-finals.
This is the seventh time in eight years that a Hereward team has achieved such a feat.
Headteacher Matt Woolard said: "I am so proud of all the children who took part and who yet again displayed their wonderful general knowledge and aptitude for learning.
"They performed confidently and are looking forward to the next round."
