0:00:220:00:24

Hello and welcome to Top Class, the search for the UK's smartest school.

It's the quarterfinal!

0:00:420:00:44

CHEERING

0:00:440:00:47

Let's meet our teams.

0:00:470:00:49

First up, we have St John's Primary School from Somerset.

0:00:490:00:52

The team won their heat against Eye Primary 38-23

0:00:520:00:56

with some very impressive knowledge on science and geography.

0:00:560:01:01

Welcome back, Izzy.

0:01:010:01:03

How proud did you feel to win your heat and get here

0:01:030:01:06

to the quarterfinal?

0:01:060:01:08

I just felt really happy that we got through that round.

0:01:080:01:11

You performed really well as a team, lots of conferring.

0:01:110:01:14

Alex, tell me, what was your favourite round

0:01:140:01:16

that you played in the heat?

0:01:160:01:18

What round did you think you did best in?

0:01:180:01:20

Um, probably science because we were pretty quick on the

0:01:200:01:23

main questions and the control ones.

0:01:230:01:26

You were. And your buzzer technique was great -

0:01:260:01:28

have you been practising your buzzer technique?

0:01:280:01:31

-Carys, what have you been doing?

-Not really much, just a little bit.

0:01:310:01:34

-Just a little bit of...

-Yeah!

0:01:340:01:36

Now, you're the captain of St John's.

0:01:360:01:39

You must have felt amazing.

0:01:390:01:41

Really excited because it was a relief to get through that round.

0:01:410:01:44

Good luck to all of you on the quarterfinal of Top Class.

0:01:440:01:48

Welcome, St John's Primary School from Somerset!

0:01:480:01:51

Give them a round of applause! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:01:510:01:54

And playing them are Castle Park Primary School from Monmouthshire.

0:01:580:02:02

The team won their heat against Blackridge 35-16,

0:02:020:02:06

answering some great questions about oceans and animals in the news.

0:02:060:02:12

Jay, welcome back.

0:02:120:02:13

Quarterfinals. How did that feel when you won your heat?

0:02:130:02:18

Um, it was really good

0:02:180:02:19

because I'm really proud of my team that we made it

0:02:190:02:22

and I didn't think we would.

0:02:220:02:24

Well, you absolutely did and, again, you played really well as a team,

0:02:240:02:28

conferring, talking about things, getting the right answers.

0:02:280:02:32

Gemma, were there any rounds that you thought were

0:02:320:02:34

a bit more difficult than you expected them to be?

0:02:340:02:36

Probably the English round because, well,

0:02:360:02:39

some of the words were really hard.

0:02:390:02:41

And in the quarterfinals,

0:02:410:02:42

the questions might even get a little bit more difficult

0:02:420:02:44

because we're trying to find the UK's smartest school.

0:02:440:02:47

Jana, captain of Castle Park - you must have felt really proud

0:02:470:02:51

captaining your team to victory, Jana?

0:02:510:02:53

Yeah. I didn't actually think we were going to make it!

0:02:530:02:56

And you did!

0:02:560:02:57

Have you been practising your buzzer technique at all?

0:02:570:03:00

Yeah, we've been playing snap.

0:03:000:03:02

Oh, that's quite a good idea, just to get your reaction times going.

0:03:020:03:06

Great! You're here, you're a quarterfinalist on Top Class,

0:03:060:03:10

and I wish you the best of luck.

It's time for my super-duper favourite round.

It's time to Test The Teacher.

0:11:100:11:12

St John's, remind us, who's coming to play for you today?

0:11:160:11:20

-Miss David.

-Now, last time Miss David was here,

0:11:200:11:23

she scored three points.

0:11:230:11:26

Do you think she's going to do a bit better this time?

0:11:260:11:29

Hopefully, it just depends on what questions come up.

0:11:290:11:32

That's true, it does.

0:11:320:11:33

Izzy, were you still quite proud of your teacher last time?

0:11:330:11:36

She did OK.

0:11:370:11:40

OK! But she could have done better.

0:11:400:11:42

-Yes.

-Right.

0:11:420:11:44

Did she say she was going to try a lot harder this time round, though?

0:11:440:11:46

-Yes.

0:11:460:11:49

0:12:090:12:11

-Thank you.

-Quarterfinals.

0:12:110:12:13

-Mmhmm.

-Now, you got three points in the heats, which actually,

0:12:130:12:17

given the standard of some of the teachers' answers, isn't that bad,

0:12:170:12:21

but I'd hoped you would do better.

0:12:210:12:23

I had hoped that I would get above zero, which I did...

0:12:240:12:27

-Yeah.

-So I can't really hope for more.

0:12:270:12:29

Are you going to try and get more points this time round?

0:12:290:12:32

I'm going to try my very best.

-Carys.

-Is it Leicester?

0:26:010:26:03

No, it's Manchester City.

0:26:030:26:04

In the title of a book...

0:26:040:26:06

Oh, I can finish it, in the title of a book by Janet and Allan Ahlberg,

0:26:060:26:09

how is the postman described?

0:26:090:26:12

-Alex.

-Flat?

0:26:120:26:14

No, it is jolly.

0:26:140:26:16

That's the end of the round. Give everyone a round of applause.

0:26:160:26:19

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:26:190:26:21

That was really, really exciting.

0:26:210:26:24

You've all done incredibly well but the winners today with, 41 points,

0:26:240:26:28

are St John's. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:26:280:26:31

Bad luck, Castle Park.

0:26:340:26:36

You played the game incredibly well.

0:26:360:26:38

It has been a pleasure to have you on Top Class.

0:26:380:26:41

I'm afraid you're going home but please give them a huge round of

0:26:410:26:44

applause. Well done, Castle Park.

0:26:440:26:46

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:26:460:26:48

St John's, you'll be back to take your place in the semifinals.

0:26:500:26:54

You are one step closer to being Top Class.

0:26:540:26:57

Izzy, you've done it again.

0:26:570:26:59

How do you feel?

0:26:590:27:00

-I don't know.

-You can't even say the words!

0:27:010:27:04

Alex, how does it feel?

0:27:040:27:05

It feels brilliant. There were a lot of unexpected turns,

0:27:050:27:08

like Miss David getting seven.

0:27:080:27:10

That was unexpected.

0:27:100:27:11

The expectations are high from Miss David next time.

0:27:110:27:14

Carys, how do you feel, captain of St John's?

0:27:140:27:16

Very excited but Castle Park did really well.

0:27:160:27:19

They did, didn't they? It was a brilliant game.

0:27:190:27:21

And, John, how do you feel?

0:27:210:27:23

-Really good.

-Really good.

0:27:230:27:25

It's been a fantastic quarterfinals.

0:27:250:27:27

Well done and I'll see you in the semifinals

0:27:270:27:30

and I'll see you next time. Goodbye!
