Battle of the Brains took place on Thursday 16th March 2017 at Grace Academy, Darlaston. Six schools took part. Firstly children had to work as a team to make a picture with the theme of success using materials won in a relay race. The teams were then split into their individual subject areas which included Literacy, Maths, Science, Computing, History and Performing Arts. Finally the teams came back together for a buzzer round on general knowledge. All the children had a great time and results were very close, with only 10 points between first and sixth place. We finished 5th!
