National Science Quiz Heats 2021

On Tuesday 30th November, our RHJ Year 6 team of budding scientists took part in the first round of heats for the annual National Science Quiz.


The questions in each round progressed from 20 point questions to 100 points and covered areas of Chemistry, Biology and Physics. At the end of rounds 1 and 2 we were positioned in 1st place out of the 81 schools taking part. By the end of rounds 3 and 4 we had been overtaken and were in 2nd position. After the final two rounds we ended up 7th out of 81 – which is a fantastic result and we are all very proud!

Our team astounded me throughout the competition, with their knowledge of the periodic table, information about combustion and even facts about the Universe!


I would like to congratulate Hrishikesh, Lingshan, Hardik and Tanisha, who have automatically gone through to the semi-finals which will be held in February.


Well done team!


Mrs Douglas
