Kirklees' World Book Day Quiz has become a much-anticipated annual event in the school calendar. It's a chance for your pupils to take part in a celebration of reading and compete against their peers in a fun, fast-paced quiz challenge.
Who will be next year’s champions?
The quiz will take place on Thursday 5 March 2020, 1.30 - 3.45pm at the Huddersfield Town Hall.
The quiz consists of questions taken from our book list of 20 books, there will be 6 questions within each round (6 rounds).
Your team should be made up of four pupils from Years 5, 6 or 7 (same or mixed year groups).
The Kirklees World Book Day Quiz is a perfect transition initiative for those secondary schools/academies working in partnership with their feeder schools. From 2020 we will also be accepting entries from schools who wish to enter mixed Year 6/7 teams.
As the event falls on World Book Day itself we would like to invite the children and adults to attend the event in fancy dress as one of their
favourite book characters (optional). There will be a prize for best costume for both pupil and staff.
In order to share the excitement of this event, we intend to take photographs during the afternoon which may be featured on Kirklees websites and its social media platforms. Our consent form will be sent out along with the confirmation pack early next year. Please ensure that pupils attending have signed parent/carer permissions for this event.
Attached is the entry form and booklist. The cost is £30 per team (Max 2 teams) and sets of quiz books (one copy of each title) are available to purchase from booksplus at a charge of £145.00 per set.
