Year 5 Geography Quiz
Students from Year 5 visited Feltonfleet school to take part in a Geography quiz against other local schools.
The Geography Department registered two teams for the Feltonfleet Geography quiz on Friday 10th November, which aimed to test all aspects of the children’s Geographical knowledge. One team captain, Doug B, said “We have great belief in our ability; we are thoroughly looking forward to getting stuck into this quiz and doing Ripley Court proud”.
With two well balanced teams, Ripley Court were in a strong position to score highly. This was the case as the teams finished 3rd and 4th out of 10, which was an excellent achievement. In fact it was the team led by the youngest participant (Freya G-H) that brought home the bronze medal - well done!
Freya had this to say; “The key to our success was teamwork. We each played to our strengths and listened to what everyone had to say. I’m so pleased to have won a medal and I’m looking forward to adding to my collection next year”.
Mr Brooks summed up the day nicely; “To come up against schools such as Parkside and Rokeby and get the highest combined score is a remarkable achievement. I am immensely proud of everyone that took part in the quiz, you were all fantastic! Each team member was a great Ambassador to Ripley Court School and I wish future teams great success in this quiz.”
