Hello and welcome to Top Class,

0:00:410:00:42

the search for the UK's smartest school.

0:00:420:00:45

Let's meet our teams.

0:00:450:00:47

First up we have Shears Green Junior School from Kent.

0:00:470:00:50

Their school is big on performing,

0:00:500:00:52

and, this year, Year Six will be doing a production of a play

0:00:520:00:56

called Pirates Of The Curry Bean.

0:00:560:00:59

-Amrita, welcome.

-Hi.

-Captain of Shears Green.

0:01:000:01:03

Have you discussed any tactics for the show?

0:01:030:01:06

We have to be fast on the buzzer.

0:01:060:01:08

Fast on the buzzer, have you been practising your buzzer techniques?

0:01:080:01:10

-A little bit.

-A little bit.

0:01:100:01:12

Just randomly hitting things?

0:01:120:01:13

-Yes.

-And seeing if it's... Oh, Harry's - Harry's going for it!

0:01:130:01:16

My goodness.

0:01:160:01:17

And tell me, Amrita, do you have any idea what you want to do

0:01:170:01:20

-when you leave school?

-Um, I want to be an author.

0:01:200:01:22

What kind of stories would you like to write?

0:01:220:01:24

-Horror.

-Horror stories! SPOOKY MUSIC

0:01:240:01:27

Oh, my word!

0:01:270:01:29

Millie. Welcome to the show.

0:01:290:01:31

We've actually got a wee photograph of you, Millie.

0:01:310:01:33

Ah, playing the guitar.

0:01:330:01:35

I play the banjo and the ukulele. BANJO PLAYS

0:01:350:01:39

Maybe we can have a singsong later on.

0:01:390:01:41

Maybe not. Er... Hope you have a lovely time on the show.

0:01:410:01:45

Welcome, Shears Green Junior School from Kent.

0:01:450:01:47

Give them a round of applause, everybody.

0:01:470:01:49

APPLAUSE

0:01:490:01:50

Good luck.

0:01:500:01:52

And playing them are Potten End Church of England Primary School

0:01:520:01:55

from Hertfordshire.

0:01:550:01:57

They're a sporty school who offer lots of activities

0:01:570:02:00

like golf, athletics, cricket and judo.

0:02:000:02:02

Joe, welcome.

0:02:020:02:04

-Sporty?

-Yeah.

0:02:040:02:05

-What do you play?

-I play football and I do a bit of distance running.

0:02:050:02:10

I ran a distance there, did you see, from that part of the studio.

0:02:100:02:13

It was quite impressive, wasn't it, Joe?

0:02:130:02:15

-Yeah.

-You're being very polite.

0:02:150:02:17

Magnus, welcome.

0:02:170:02:18

-What's your favourite sport?

-I like doing canoeing.

0:02:180:02:21

Do you want to be a canoer in later life?

0:02:210:02:25

No, not really.

0:02:250:02:26

I'd quite like to do music.

0:02:260:02:28

Oh, lovely! I mean, Millie plays the guitar, what instrument do you play?

0:02:280:02:32

I play the piano and the... slash keyboards, so...

0:02:320:02:35

-We could have a band.

-Yeah!

0:02:350:02:36

We could just have a singsong.

0:02:360:02:38

Welcome Potten End Church of England Primary School from Hertfordshire.

0:02:380:02:41

Give them a round of applause everybody. Well done.

0:02:410:02:44

APPLAUSE

0:02:440:02:45

OK, teams,

0:02:480:02:49

let's kick straight off with a lightning round.

0:02:490:02:53

In this round you'll each be given a wordsearch.

0:02:540:02:57

Shears Green, you're up first.

0:02:570:03:00

You're looking for animals you might find at the zoo.

0:03:000:03:04

There are eight in total.

0:03:040:03:05

Here's your puzzle.

0:03:050:03:07

Your 45 seconds starts now.

0:03:070:03:09

There we are, absolutely right.

0:03:340:03:37

-Ella.

-Zebra?

0:03:380:03:40

Zebra, is zebra there?

0:03:400:03:42

It is, well spotted.

0:03:420:03:44

Ten seconds.

0:03:440:03:46

0:03:540:03:55

Right at the last minute -

0:03:570:03:58

well done, you've got 7 points, Shears Green, brilliant.

0:03:580:04:03

APPLAUSE

0:04:030:04:05

You only missed one animal, and it was...

0:04:050:04:09

..giraffe -

0:04:090:04:10

but you got 7 points, well done.

0:04:100:04:13

Next up, Potten End.

0:04:130:04:15

You get to play your wordsearch.

0:04:150:04:18

You're looking for European countries.

0:04:180:04:21

There are eight in total.

0:04:210:04:23

Here is your puzzle.

0:04:230:04:24

Your 45 seconds starts now.

0:04:250:04:27

Emma. Say?

0:04:280:04:29

-Germany.

-Germany, is that there?

0:04:290:04:31

Yes. Magnus.

0:04:320:04:34

-Greece?

-Greece...it's there.

0:04:340:04:37

-Joe.

-Sweden.

0:04:380:04:39

0:04:390:04:41

It's there, yep.

0:04:410:04:43

-Emma.

-Poland.

0:04:430:04:44

0:04:440:04:46

It is.

0:04:460:04:47

-Joe.

-Norway.

0:04:480:04:50

0:04:500:04:51

It is, well done.

0:04:510:04:53

-Jackie.

0:04:570:04:58

France, is that there?

0:04:580:05:00

It is, well done.

0:05:000:05:02

I can't... I can't see any...

0:05:030:05:06

-Jackie.

-Italy?

-Italy, is Italy there?

0:05:060:05:08

It is there, yes, well done.

0:05:100:05:12

Oh, my goodness, you've got 7 points, as well, Potten End!

0:05:120:05:15

APPLAUSE

0:05:150:05:17

Goodness!

0:05:170:05:19

What a round!

0:05:200:05:22

Let's see just the one country that you didn't get - and it was...

0:05:220:05:26

..Spain -

0:05:260:05:28

and it was just diagonally, there, you just missed it -

0:05:280:05:30

but well done to both teams, you've got points on the board!

0:05:300:05:33

APPLAUSE Give them a round of applause.

0:05:330:05:35

Brilliant.

0:05:350:05:36

OK, teams, from now on, throughout the game,

0:05:390:05:41

you'll get a chance to take control of each subject.

0:05:410:05:45

Here is your first control question.

0:05:450:05:47

The subject is...

0:05:470:05:48

What L is a simple lifting mechanism made from a long pole...

0:05:510:05:57

-Joe.

-Lever.

0:05:570:05:58

Correct answer, Joe - well done Potten End,

0:05:580:06:00

you've got control of the game, well done.

0:06:000:06:02

Here are the rest of your questions on the subject of materials.

0:06:050:06:09

You'll see four materials on the bench.

0:06:090:06:12

You just need to choose which one is the correct answer.

0:06:120:06:17

Firstly, which one of these objects

0:06:170:06:19

would be the best electrical conductor?

0:06:190:06:22

Safety pin.

0:06:220:06:24

-I'd say safety pin, yeah.

-Yeah, I'd say safety pin.

0:06:240:06:27

We think it's the steel safety pin.

0:06:270:06:30

Let's see if that's the right answer.

0:06:300:06:32

It is - well done, Potten End.

0:06:330:06:35

Which one of these substances is soluble in water?

0:06:350:06:40

-Sand...

-What do you think? Shall we go for...?

-Sand.

0:06:400:06:43

We're going for sand.

0:06:430:06:46

You're going for sand.

0:06:460:06:47

Is that the right answer?

0:06:470:06:49

It's not.

0:06:500:06:51

The answer is table salt.

0:06:510:06:53

Soluble substance is something that dissolves in water.

0:06:530:06:57

Here's your third question,

0:06:570:06:59

which one of these objects is the most magnetic?

0:06:590:07:03

-Copper coin.

-I'd say iron horseshoe, because...

0:07:030:07:05

I don't think it could be a horseshoe,

0:07:050:07:07

-because coins are magnetic...

-Yes...

0:07:070:07:09

Yeah, but the copper one...

0:07:090:07:11

Wouldn't a copper one be, like, a 1p and 2p?

0:07:110:07:13

-Yeah.

-Yeah, and I've managed to lift a 1p and 2p.

0:07:130:07:15

Shall we go for copper, then?

0:07:150:07:17

We're going for copper coin.

0:07:170:07:19

You're going for the copper coin. Is that right?

0:07:190:07:22

No, it's the iron horseshoe is the most magnetic.

0:07:230:07:28

Final question. Which one of these materials

0:07:280:07:32

is the best thermal insulator?

0:07:320:07:35

-Plastic?

-Aluminium, because you can use that as flasks.

0:07:350:07:38

-Keeps it hot and cold, so...

-Oh, yeah.

-Oh, yeah.

0:07:380:07:40

So it would be a thermal insulator.

0:07:400:07:42

-Are flasks aluminium, then?

-Yeah.

0:07:420:07:43

OK, we are going for aluminium.

0:07:430:07:47

Aluminium, is that the right answer?

0:07:470:07:49

No. It was...

0:07:490:07:52

plastic.

0:07:520:07:53

Well done, Potten End, you got 2 points in that round, well done.

0:07:530:07:56

Give them a round of applause. APPLAUSE

0:07:560:07:58

Tough questions.

0:07:590:08:01

I can tell you now, it's really close at the end of that round -

0:08:010:08:04

Shears Green have 7,

0:08:040:08:06

Potten End have 9 points, everyone.

0:08:060:08:08

Ooh, it's close. It is close. APPLAUSE

0:08:080:08:11

The key is to get control of the game.

0:08:130:08:15

You've got a chance now. The next subject is...

0:08:150:08:18

Here is your control question.

0:08:220:08:24

What is the square root of 81?

0:08:240:08:29

Amrita.

0:08:290:08:30

9.

0:08:300:08:31

It's the correct answer, well done Shears Green,

0:08:310:08:33

you've got control of the game. APPLAUSE

0:08:330:08:35

Here are the rest of your questions on sequences.

0:08:390:08:42

Which number completes this sequence correctly?

0:08:420:08:45

THEY WHISPER

0:08:470:08:49

-It's 10, 10.

-It's 10.

-It's 10.

0:08:500:08:52

We're going to go with 10.

0:08:520:08:54

Is that correct?

0:08:540:08:56

It is correct. Well done. APPLAUSE

0:08:560:08:58

The sequence is going up at that point

0:08:580:09:00

by 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.

0:09:000:09:05

Second question - which number completes this sequence correctly?

0:09:050:09:08

If we do 63 minus 32...

0:09:130:09:16

-8...

-31 - and 31 minus 16...

0:09:160:09:21

-That's 15, yeah?

-Yeah.

0:09:210:09:24

-Amrita.

-31.

0:09:240:09:25

You're saying 31.

0:09:250:09:27

Is that right?

0:09:270:09:28

It is right, well done, excellent. APPLAUSE

0:09:290:09:32

The rule is you multiply by 2 and add 1 each time.

0:09:320:09:36

Third question, which number completes this sequence correctly?

0:09:360:09:41

THEY WHISPER

0:09:430:09:46

50 times 5, OK...

0:09:470:09:48

-Um, 250.

-250 - is that right?

0:09:480:09:52

It is, well done - you multiply by 5 each time.

0:09:530:09:56

APPLAUSE

0:09:560:09:58

And finally, which number completes this sequence correctly?

0:09:580:10:02

THEY WHISPER

0:10:040:10:06

You add the previous term, because, look - 3, 3, 6...

0:10:060:10:09

-Times 1, times 2...

-No, because, look, 3 and 3 are 6,

0:10:090:10:12

6 and 3 is 9,

0:10:120:10:13

and then 9 and 6 is 15.

0:10:130:10:15

-So it would be...

-9.

-..9. Yeah.

0:10:150:10:19

-We're going to go with 9.

-You're going to say 9.

0:10:190:10:21

Is that the right answer?

0:10:210:10:22

It is, well done. APPLAUSE

0:10:240:10:26

At the end of that round, you got 5 points, Shears Green.

0:10:260:10:29

Lovely teamwork from all of you working it all out together.

0:10:320:10:35

I can tell you now that the scores - oh, my goodness, it's close.

0:10:350:10:39

Potten End have 9 and Shears Green have 12 points.

0:10:390:10:41

APPLAUSE Very close.

0:10:410:10:44

The next subject is...

0:10:480:10:50

Here is your control question - buzz in if you know the answer.

0:10:540:10:56

The light bulb, the telephone, and the gramophone

0:10:580:11:01

were all invented during the reign of which British...

0:11:010:11:05

Magnus.

0:11:050:11:06

Queen Victoria.

0:11:060:11:07

..which British Queen - Victoria, correct answer,

0:11:090:11:11

well done, Magnus, well done, Potten End.

0:11:110:11:14

APPLAUSE Wow, it's going back and forth.

0:11:140:11:17

Here are the rest of your questions,

0:11:170:11:19

on the subject of... historic buildings.

0:11:190:11:22

I'm going to give you the names of four notable historical buildings.

0:11:220:11:27

You need to tell me the order in which they were completed.

0:11:270:11:30

The Tower of London is very old,

0:11:380:11:39

so I'd say the Tower of London would be one of the first ones.

0:11:390:11:42

Then the Eiffel Tower... and then...

0:11:420:11:45

The Parthenon before the Tower of London or after?

0:11:450:11:48

-After.

-I think it's after.

0:11:480:11:50

In between Eiffel Tower and Tower of London, put it.

0:11:500:11:53

Are you ready?

0:11:530:11:55

-Yes.

-So, tell me, Emma, what was completed first?

0:11:550:11:58

The Tower of London.

0:11:580:11:59

The Tower of London. Second?

0:11:590:12:02

Then we think the Eiffel Tower.

0:12:020:12:05

-Third.

-The Parthenon.

0:12:050:12:08

-Fourth.

-And then The Shard.

0:12:080:12:11

That's the order you've locked in.

0:12:110:12:13

Let's see how many you got right.

0:12:130:12:15

You got one right, well done.

0:12:170:12:20

Let's see the correct order.

0:12:200:12:21

The Parthenon was completed in the fifth century BC -

0:12:230:12:27

so it's the earliest. It's a Greek building.

0:12:270:12:29

The Tower of London was in the 13th century,

0:12:290:12:32

the Eiffel Tower was the 19th century,

0:12:320:12:34

and then The Shard, of course, was the 21st century -

0:12:340:12:36

but, well done.

0:12:360:12:37

You got 2 points in that round, Potten End, so, well done.

0:12:370:12:40

Brilliantly done. APPLAUSE

0:12:400:12:42

And it's such a close game, I can tell you now,

0:12:440:12:47

because Potten End has 11,

0:12:470:12:49

Shears Green has 12.

0:12:490:12:50

Oh, my goodness!

0:12:500:12:51

APPLAUSE Really close.

0:12:510:12:55

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

0:12:570:13:00

of all-time - it's time to test the teacher.

0:13:000:13:04

Shears Green, who have you brought with you and why, Amrita?

0:13:050:13:09

We've brought Mrs Pike because she picks up things really easily

0:13:090:13:12

and we think that's going to give us the advantage.

0:13:120:13:14
