We held our annual Kids’ Lit Quiz after school in the LRC on Wednesday 6th November.  It was attended by teams from Year 7 and Year 8 form groups.  We were helped by members of the English staff, and by Millie Rees of Year 13.  Millie has been our question master for several years.  She has done a great job and we’re very grateful to her.  We had a very supportive audience of family and friends.

The quiz results were of a very high standard and were very close.  In the case of Year 8 we held a nail-biting tie-break.

On Thursday 14th November our two winning teams travelled to Comberton Village College in Cambridgeshire for the regional heats.  The Year 8 team was made up of Toby Ayres, Jimmy Clarke, Hazel Irving, and Kaitlyn Bray.  Our Year 7s were Liv Turner, Lars Haynes, Lucy Ray and Harry Osman.

There were ten rounds, each containing ten questions.  Between rounds, students were asked individual questions and Liv, Lars and Harry each won a prize.

We were up against some very strong competition from other schools.  However, both our teams did very well, and represented Sponne extremely positively.  The winning team of students, who will go forward to the national heats, were from the host school, Comberton Village College.

Since joining Sponne School, students in Year 7 have had the chance to take up a new sport- Futsal. This was the first time any of us had ever played futsal and now we love it!
 
On Sunday 17th November, we travelled to Stantonbury Sports Complex, Milton Keynes to watch some FA National Futsal Series games. The first futsal match we saw was between London Genesis vs. London Escolla. The match was very well played by both teams but Genesis came out on top winning 9-3 .The atmosphere was extremely lively as everyone was really getting into the game.
 
The second match was MK Mavericks vs. Bedford and it was a local derby. The game was full of great skill from both teams but unfortunately the Mavericks lost 10-2 which puts them 7th in the league table, whilst Bedford are joint first on 9 points after 4 games. Our man of the match was Bedfords goalkeeper who made a number of jaw dropping saves.
 
Overall, we loved watching the games and we would highly recommend this amazing sport to anyone who wants to try something new.
