Primary school quiz

April 1, 2015 in Quizzes

school-testOne year on from the quiz I hosted in aid of the local primary school, I was again invited to provide the questions for 2015’s event. The school staff also asked me to host once again but, alas, due to family reasons I couldn’t.

After being impressed with the number of school children who attended last year’s quiz, I decided to make this year’s questions a bit more child-friendly. I have since been told that this worked out well as there were even more kids in attendance this year!

However, in amongst questions about nursery rhyme characters, medieval history and ‘make and do’, I also endeavoured to place at least one (if not two) tough questions in each round – to keep adult teams interested.

Hopefully that worked out and I wasn’t being cursed by the all-grown-ups teams in the room…

Anyway, have a go at this representative sample:

  1. Who was created by Gepetto the woodcarver?
  2. What is the name of the boy in The Jungle Book?
  3. Which is the only vowel not on the top row of a computer keyboard?
  4. How many ounces are there in a pound?
  5. Which television series is set in the town of Pontypandy?
  6. What was the name of the Kung Fu Panda in the film of that name?
  7. In ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, what is Charlie’s surname?
  8. What is the name of Eoin Colfer’s underage criminal mastermind?
  9. Which is the only nation to have qualified for every FIFA World Cup finals tournament?
  10. What is the name of the highest mountain in the province of Connacht?
  11. How many pieces does a player have in a game of Ludo?
  12. Which card is always the third-highest in value in a game of 25 or 110?

I also created this picture round:
