Literature quiz tests students knowledge
‘‘Everyone involved had great fun, and it was a nice change from traditional classroom learning.’’
Once a month a student from Matamata Intermediate will be writing a report, detailing the school highlights from the month. First, we introduce room 1 student Jessica Walton, with her report from the literature quiz.
The annual Matamata Intermediate Literature Quiz is an afternoon where students broaden their understanding of books.
Students from every class worked in teams of four to answer questions based on books and characters.
Categories had 10 questions each, consisting of Dr Seuss, Latest and Greatest, Telling Tales, Sports of Sorts, and Monkey Business.
Each correct answer is worth one point, and the team with the most points at the end of the round wins a book from the prize table.
The Literature Quiz is designed to get students enthused about reading, and to improve their knowledge of books in general. The competition also gets the audience involved with questions for them and spot book prizes in between categories.
Everyone involved had great fun, and it was a nice change from traditional classroom learning. Mrs McLenna has been organising this event for students for ten years, and we hope it will continue for many years to come.
