Aleks and Karan

0:00:150:00:17

from Little Sutton Primary School from the West Midlands,

0:00:170:00:20

but who will be Top Class?

0:00:200:00:23

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:00:230:00:27

Hello and welcome to Top Class,

0:00:380:00:40

the search for the UK's smartest school.

0:00:400:00:43

It's the first semifinal!

0:00:430:00:45

AUDIENCE: Whoo!

0:00:450:00:47

Let's meet our returning teams.

0:00:470:00:50

First up, Calside Primary School.

0:00:500:00:51

They won their quarterfinal with just one point.

0:00:510:00:55

So you've got to the semifinals, Emily.

0:00:550:00:57

What is it that makes your team special, do you think,

0:00:570:01:00

that they've got here?

0:01:000:01:01

-Erm, well, we all get along well and we practise together.

-OK.

0:01:010:01:05

Mya, team captain of Calside.

0:01:050:01:08

Now you were behind in your quarterfinals

0:01:080:01:11

and you came right back to win by one point.

0:01:110:01:13

How did you keep your cool as captain of Calside

0:01:130:01:16

during that last round?

0:01:160:01:18

Well, it might have looked like it,

0:01:180:01:20

but under the table my legs were like up and down for ages.

0:01:200:01:25

After that buzzer round at the end, I think we were all like,

0:01:250:01:28

"It's going to be close."

0:01:280:01:29

Scott, in the last show,

0:01:290:01:32

you were just buzzing constantly and getting the answers right.

0:01:320:01:35

How did that feel?

0:01:350:01:36

It felt quite good, but like, in the same way,

0:01:360:01:39

it felt a wee bit selfish cos I wasn't letting my team get in,

0:01:390:01:42

but I'm just glad we ended up winning.

0:01:420:01:44

That's really sweet, Scott.

0:01:440:01:46

You got the answers right, but you're still going,

0:01:460:01:48

"I could have let someone else have a shot as well."

0:01:480:01:50

But you're through in the semifinals.

0:01:500:01:52

Did you ever think you would get here?

0:01:520:01:53

No, to be honest I didn't think we'd make it to the quarterfinals

0:01:530:01:56

-at the start.

-Well, you should believe it because you are here.

0:01:560:02:00

Everyone, please welcome Calside Primary School

0:02:000:02:03

from Dumfries & Galloway!

0:02:030:02:05

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:02:050:02:09

And competing against them are Little Sutton Primary School.

0:02:090:02:12

They won their quarterfinal 28-10.

0:02:120:02:15

James, how did it feel when I said you'd won your quarterfinal?

0:02:150:02:18

-How happy did you feel?

-I felt really, really happy.

-Yeah?

0:02:180:02:22

And how do you think your team's going to approach this semifinal?

0:02:220:02:26

-Any differently?

-No, cos we won the last two,

0:02:260:02:29

so I think we're not going to change a thing.

0:02:290:02:32

Zara, captain of Little Sutton,

0:02:320:02:34

are there any rounds that you've had so far on Top Class that you think,

0:02:340:02:37

"I really hope that they don't come up again?"

0:02:370:02:39

The history rounds. We struggled on that.

0:02:390:02:43

History, you don't want history. Well, we'll see what happens.

0:02:430:02:46

-Aleks.

-Yes.

-Any subjects you don't want to come up?

-History.

0:02:460:02:50

-History again.

-No history.

0:02:500:02:52

So your whole team is hoping history doesn't come up.

0:02:520:02:56

Oh, wow, we'll find out what happens.

0:02:560:02:58

Everyone, it's Little Sutton Primary School from the West Midlands!

0:02:580:03:01

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

The subject is...

0:03:100:03:12

The common name of which bone in the body shares part of its name

0:03:140:03:18

with something a dog might wear around its neck?

0:03:180:03:22

-BUZZER Zara.

-Collarbone.

0:03:220:03:24

Correct answer, Zara. Well done. You've got a point.

0:03:240:03:26

You've got control of the game.

0:03:260:03:28

Here are the rest of your questions on the subject Parts Of The Body.

0:03:380:03:44

-Is it the jawbone?

0:03:480:03:51

It is. The jaw or the mandible.

0:03:510:03:54

Secondly, which of your organs are highlighted now?

0:03:540:03:58

THEY CONFER

0:03:580:04:01

No, that's lungs.

0:04:010:04:03

We're going with lungs.

0:04:060:04:08

You're saying lungs. Let's see if that's right.

0:04:080:04:11

0:04:270:04:29

0:04:400:04:44

0:04:440:04:46

You got five points in that round. Well done. Brilliant.

0:04:460:04:49

APPLAUSE

0:04:500:04:53

Calside have nothing yet but there's loads of time.

0:04:530:04:55

Give them both a huge round of applause.

0:04:550:04:58

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:04:580:05:01

Mya, how would you lot have done with those questions?

0:05:020:05:05

We don't really do much science at school but I certainly would

0:05:050:05:10

know some of them, but I think they would all know some as well, so...

0:05:100:05:13

Yeah, so, as a team, you would have managed to get most of them right?

0:05:130:05:16

Well, let's move on to the next subject and it is...

0:05:160:05:19

Here's your control question.

0:05:210:05:23

Who was Prime Minister of the UK at the beginning of this millennium?

0:05:530:05:57

So what happened first, the sinking of the Titanic

0:06:490:06:53

And, lastly, which of these historic moments happened first -

Actually, I got different.

0:09:450:09:47

0:09:500:09:55

0:10:190:10:22

Little Sutton have ten points and Calside have five points!

0:10:340:10:37

Remember, one of you will be taking a place in the final.

0:10:370:10:41

Well, everything can change in the game now because it's time to...

0:10:440:10:49

Test The Teacher.

0:10:490:10:51

Calside, who have you brought with you and why?

0:10:510:10:53

We've brought out head teacher, Mrs Gamble.

0:10:530:10:56

Right, and how do you think she's going to do in the semifinals?

0:10:560:11:00

I think she's under a lot of pressure today.

0:11:000:11:03

She keeps saying that she's going to keep halving her score,

0:11:030:11:06

but I think she'll do well today.

0:11:060:11:07

She's done great for you before.

0:11:070:11:09

Scott, how do you think Mrs Gamble's going to do?

0:11:090:11:11

Even though she's under pressure, I still think she'll do really well.

0:11:110:11:14

Yeah? Let's find out how she feels about it, Calside.

0:11:140:11:17

It's time to Test The Teacher. Bring in Mrs Gamble.

0:11:170:11:21

0:11:310:11:34

My score's been going down steadily, so I feel like I've peaked

0:11:340:11:38

-and now we're going into the trough.

-I don't think so.

0:11:380:11:41

Now, Mrs Gamble, it's the semifinals of Top Class.

0:11:410:11:43

-Very proud.

0:11:430:11:46

0:12:020:12:05

Maybe a little bit. That's as much as we're going to get.

I did actually write it.

0:23:520:23:54

0:23:550:23:59

I'm very sorry. Finally, spell the word "shrieked".

0:23:590:24:03

-Yeah, shrieked.
