Are you a subscriber to Education Quizzes? If you are then you could be in the running to win our Best Score of the Month competition! Every month we look at how well everyone has done in our quizzes.  The one with the most perfect 10-out-of-10 scores at the end of each month will win a nature-themed prize. October’s prize is a ‘Penguin Island encounter’ experience for two people at Chester Zoo plus two adult tickets worth an amazing £240! Take a look at it on this link.

In order to win the prize, as well as getting the most 10-out-of-10 scores, there are a few other conditions. You will find them on our About Us page.

So, who is set to pounce on October’s prize? Let’s take a look at today’s Top 10 users:

top-10-g-438151-b

After two days absence, Sangaa returns to the Top 10 in 10th position and a score of 66

TUITION’s total remains on 70 and they slip from equal 7th to 9th place

Falling one from 7th to 8th, JonathanBest is up to 74 points

Pajaka’s has increased their score to 78, but that’s not enough to prevent their slide from 6th to 7th

DylanBA, mashal and Catherine Pats have all failed to add to yesterday’s scores of 101, 99 and 81 respectively, seeing all three drop one place to 4th, 5th and 6th

In 3rd place it’s August’s winner, Ushna13, who has had a resurge and now sits on 120 points

In 2nd place it’s still tanyixuen who now has a score of 148

Still in 1st place, and now with a double-century, it’s kingeshoes with 200 perfect 10-out-of-10 scores

Kingeshoes seems to be pulling away from tanyixuen – 52 points now separate the two of them. But it’s not all over – not by a long shot. Old faces are reappearing and things are hotting-up! Maybe your name will be the next to show up in the Top 10 – just keep on playing those quizzes!

Your Own Words

As well as Best Score of the Month, you could also try our Your Own Words competition. Write, draw, paint or photograph nature for us and get yourself a £10 reward!

October 16th 2016

Have you been taking part in our Best Score of the Month competition? It makes revision more rewarding if you know there could be a prize for your efforts! At the end of each month we tot up the number of perfect 10-out-of-10 scores each of our users has achieved when playing our quizzes. The one who gets the most can win themselves a prize which has something to do with nature. October’s champion will receive a ‘Penguin Island encounter’ experience for two people at Chester Zoo plus two adult tickets worth a total of £240 – a real treat for any animal lover! Check it out here.

But it’s not as simple as that- there are a few conditions which prize-winners have to meet so be sure to see what they are on our About Us page.

Let’s see how the Top 10 is shaping up – I can hardly ‘bear’ to look!

top-ten-f-11045656-b

August’s champion, Ushna13, now has 63 points but still falls down to 10th

LABORNEVAS is down from 7th to 9th, still with a score of 64

Two users share 7th place – TUITION and JonathanBest both have 70 points

Pajaka’s remains in 6th place, despite having now collected 72 perfect scores

Catherine Pats has shot up the table from 10th to 5th and now has a total of 81

mashal, remains in 4th place, still one point short of a century with 99 points

No change in 3rd where DylanBA’s score remains on 101

In 2nd place tanyixuen has upped their score to a healthy 146

Still in 1st place, and now with a collection of 172 perfect 10-out-of-10 scores, it’s kingeshoes

It’s a tussle at the top with tanyixuen and kingeshoes battling it out. Can the current leader hold on or will the challenger be successful? And what about Catherine Pats – a few more performances like yesterday’s and they could claim the top spot for themselves! But we are only half way through October’s competition so, even if your name is not in the Top 10 (and there are a lot of names just behind the leaders) there is time yet for you to join the fray – just keep on playing those quizzes!

A name we remember from September’s competition – Catherine Pats makes their first October appearance in 10th place with 55 points

Still in 1st place, and now with a collection of 142 perfect 10-out-of-10 scores, it’s kingeshoes

The gap at the top is closing – only 9 points now separate kingeshoes in 1st from tanyixuen in 2nd place.

As-you-were in 6th place where TUITION remains on 40

The top four users are the same as yesterday – mashal, kingeshoes, Ushna13 and LABORNEVAS remain on 94, 73, 55 and 48 points respectively

A quiet day in the Top 10 with very little movement. This means, of course, that those nipping at the leaders’ heels (and there are quite a few!) are gaining ground. If your name is not in today’s Top 10 then it could well be tomorrow – just keep on playing those quizzes!

September 28th 2016

It’s almost over – September’s Best Score of the Month competition ends on Friday and we are only three days away from announcing a winner! Throughout the month we’ve been keeping tabs on how many perfect 10-out-of-10 scores each of our users has managed to tot up. Whoever does best will win themselves a nature-themed prize which this month happens to be a replica stegosaurus skeleton from the Natural History Museum worth £275 – how cool is that!

There are some conditions you must meet to be eligible for the prize and you can find out what they are on our About Us page.

So, with only three days left to up your scores, who is sitting at the tip of the Best Scores Tree? Let’s find out in today’s Top 10:

top-ten-80312741-b

There have been no changes in 5th to 10th positions where temiawofeso, Saniva, Catherine Pats, TEBS, DylanBA and Pajaka remain on 137, 114, 98, 96, 91 and 86 points respectively

Angelin’s score has increased to 156, but that is not enough to prevent their slide from 3rd to 4th

LABORNEVAS has moved up from 4th to 3rd and now has a score of 157

No change in 1st and 2nd where Amimar and neshan08 still have 247 and 177 points

Can you believe how quiet our Top 10 still is, with just three days left? Only one user has moved up the table! But you know what that means – those following just behind the Top 10 are gaining ground. The names on the list could be very different tomorrow. In fact, one of them might be yours – just keep on playing those quizzes!

Even if it is too late for you to claim September’s prize, October’s competition starts on Saturday. And the prize for next month is a ‘Penguin Island encounter’ experience for two people at Chester Zoo plus two adult tickets worth a total of £240! It’s a fantastic prize which helps to conserve wildlife. Take a look at this link to see just what is on offer.

September 27th 2016

Have you been taking part in our Best Score of the Month competition? It makes revision more rewarding if you know there could be a prize for your efforts! Over the course of each month we add up the number of perfect 10-out-of-10 scores all of our users get in our quizzes. The user with the most 10-out-of-10 scores wins a nature-themed prize. September’s best performer will receive a replica stegosaurus skeleton from the Natural History Museum worth £275 – the perfect gift for any aspiring palaeontologists. Click here for a look at what you could win.

There are a few conditions to be met in order to win the prize. To see what they are take a look at our About Us page.

So, with just four days remaining in September’s competition, let’s find out who is beetling along in the latest Top 10:

top-ten-3312778-b

6th to 10th places on the table are identical to yesterday with Saniva, Catherine Pats, TEBS, DylanBA and Pajaka all failing to add to their scores

Temiawofeso’s score is also unchanged and this sees them drop one place from 4th to 5th

LABORNEVAS has taken advantage of temiawofeso’s inaction and jumped up from 5th to 4th, now on 143 points

No change in the top three spots where Amimar, neshan08 and Angelin remain on 247, 177 and 153 points respectively

Yet another day with hardly any movement in the Top 10. The lowest score for a past winner was 324 points for maulikshelat in July this year, but it looks like September’s winner will beat that record. If you are not in the Top 10 then it might be too late for you to win this month’s prize. But don’t worry, for today I can announce the prize for October – a ‘Penguin Island encounter’ experience for two people at Chester Zoo worth £200! It’s a fantastic prize which helps to conserve wildlife. Take a look at this link to see just what is on offer.

September 26th 2016

It’s almost over – September’s Best Score of the Month competition ends on Friday and we are only five days away from announcing a winner! Every month we add up the number of perfect 10-out-of-10 scores for everyone playing our quizzes. Whoever gets the most wins a nature-themed prize. September’s winner will get an amazing reward – a replica stegosaurus skeleton from the Natural History Museum. This is half a metre long, quarter of a metre tall and worth £275! Click on this link for a sneak preview.

Of course, to win the prize you have to perform better than anyone else in our quizzes – but there are some other conditions that have to be met. You can read them on our About Us page.

Let’s find out who has managed to squirrel away the most perfect scores in today’s Top 10:

top-ten-squirrel-87384659-b

Pajaka still has a score of 86 and so slips from9th to 10th

After an absence of seven days, DylanBA returns to the Top 10 in 9th place on 91 points

There’s been no change from 2nd to 8th where neshan08, Angelin, temiawofeso, LABORNEVAS, Saniva, Catherine Pats and TEBS remain on 177, 153, 137, 130, 114, 98 and 96 points respectively

Still out in front, and now with a collection of 247 perfect scores, it’s Amimar

Still very little action in the Top 10 – September is looking like having the lowest ever Top 10 scores. Of course this means that those of you just outside the Top 10 could make a late challenge! With five days left until the competition ends, with hard work, you could claim the top spot – just keep on playing those quizzes!

September 25th 2016

There are only six days remaining in September’s Best Score of the Month competition so, if you haven’t already, it’s time to get down to some serious quizzing! Over the course of each month we add up the number of perfect 10-out-of-10 scores all of our users get in our quizzes. The one with the most perfect 10-out-of-10 scores at the end of each month will win a nature-themed prize. September’s prize is a replica stegosaurus skeleton from the Natural History Museum worth a whopping £275! Take a look at it on this link.

If you’d like to win the prize then you must meet the following conditions: you must be less than 18 years old and you can win no more than one prize every 12 months, so if you get the best score more than once a year the prize will go to the runner-up. You must also be resident in the UK. Winners from overseas will instead win Amazon vouchers to the same value as the prize to be spent in their country. If there is no Amazon store in your country then, sadly, you are unable to receive any prize.

Who are the leaders in September’s competition and who are the snails? Let’s find out in today’s Top 10:

top-ten-20173793-b

There’s been no change in 9th or 10th where Pajaka and aakhayre remain on 86 and 80 points respectively

TEBS has slipped from 7th to 8th having failed to add to yesterday’s score of 96

Catherine Pats moves up one place from 8th to 7th and now has a score of 98

No movement from 4th to 6th as neither Angelin, temiawofeso nor LABORNEVAS could improve on yesterday’s tallies of 137, 130 and 114 points respectively

In 3rd Angelin has upped their points total to 153

No change at all in the top two spots where Amimar and neshan08 remain on 246 and 177 respectively

Can you believe how quiet our Top 10 is with only a few days to go? Only one user managed to improve their standing on the Top 10 table! But you know what that means – those following just behind the Top 10 are gaining ground. The names on the list could be very different tomorrow. In fact, one of them might be yours – just keep on playing those quizzes!

Your Own Words

If this all sounds a bit hard and you’d like a competition a little less taxing, you could have a go at Your Own Words. Not only might you see your name in the bright lights of Nature Matters, you could win yourself a £10 Amazon voucher as well!

If you enjoy writing and if you like nature then send us 50-300 words (more for older children, less for younger) about some aspect of the natural world. Maybe your favourite flower, an animal you have seen or a place you have visited. We also want you to send us any photos, drawings or paintings you’ve taken or made of the natural world. They can be of sunsets, trees, clouds, creatures or any other part of nature. The best ones we receive will be published here in Nature Matters and their authors will be given a £10 Amazon voucher as a reward. This is to be spent in your country so please be aware that, if there is no Amazon store in your country then, sadly, you will not be able to receive a voucher.

September’s best performer will receive a replica stegosaurus skeleton from the Natural History Museum worth £275 – the perfect gift for any aspiring palaeontologists. Click here for a look at what you could win.

There are some conditions you must meet to be eligible for the prize.

In addition winners must be resident in the UK to receive the stated prize. Winners from overseas will win Amazon vouchers to the same value as the prize to be used in their country’s Amazon store. Please be aware that some countries do not have Amazon stores and so, sadly, residents cannot qualify for any prize.

So, who is set to dive on the prize? Let’s take a look at today’s Top 10:

top-ten-7854805-b

aakhayre has slipped from 9th to 10th and remains on 80 points

Angelin, in 3rd, has also upped their score and is now on 152

It’s as-you-were in the top two spots where Amimar and neshan08 stay on 246 and 177 points respectively

Not much action in the Top 10 yesterday so, for those of you just behind, now is the time to make your move! There’s one week left until the competition ends so you can still claim the top spot – just keep on playing those quizzes!

September 23rd 2016

There are eight days left in September’s Best Score of the Month competition so, if you haven’t already, it’s time to get down to some serious quizzing! Over the course of each month we add up the number of perfect 10-out-of-10 scores all of our users get in our quizzes. The one with the most perfect 10-out-of-10 scores at the end of each month will win a nature-themed prize. September’s prize is a replica stegosaurus skeleton from the Natural History Museum worth a whopping £275! Take a look at it on this link.

To win the monthly prize there are some conditions – firstly, you must be under 18 years old and secondly, you can only win one prize in 12 months. So if you get the best score in 2 or more months a year the prize will go to the runner-up. As well as that, to get the main prize the winner must live in the UK. If they don’t then in place of the prize they will receive Amazon vouchers of equal value to be spent in their own country’s Amazon store. We regret that some countries do not have Amazon stores so residents are unable to get any prize.

So, who has jumped into the Top 10? Let’s see:

top-10-19702188-b

Catherine Pats remains in 10th place, still on 74 points

aakhayre has not managed to increase their score of 80 and so slips from 8th to 9th

Also failing to up their score is Pajaka who is still on 86 points and falls from 7th to 8th

Up to 7th from joint 8th it’s TEBS, now with a score of 96

Saniva has dropped down from 5th to 6th and remains on 114 points

LABORNEVAS now has 130 points but that is not enough to lift them out of 5th place

Climbing three places from 6th to 3rd, it’s temiawofeso who has now collected 131 perfect scores

In 3rd Angelin now has 144 points

No change in 2nd where neshan08 is languishing on 177 points

Still out in front it’s Amimar with a total of 246 perfect 10-out-of-10 scores

We are nearing the end of September’s competition so is there time for things to change? You bet there is! The current scores are not as high as in previous months so the opportunity to claim the title is still open to everyone. If your name is not there, don’t despair. There is time enough to make your mark – just keep on playing those quizzes!

Today is the autumn equinox, the first day of autumn – but it also means that September’s Best Score of the Month competition is well underway! Every month we keep a record of how well each of our users is doing when playing our quizzes. The one with the most perfect 10-out-of-10 scores at the end of each month wins a nature-themed prize, which for September is a replica stegosaurus skeleton from the Natural History Museum worth a whopping £275!

Angelin now has a score of 140 but remains in 3rd

neshan08 has one more point, increasing their total to 177

Amimar is still 1st with 245 points

September’s best performer will receive a replica stegosaurus skeleton from the Natural History Museum worth £275 – the perfect gift for any aspiring palaeontologists! Click here for a look at what you could win.

There are some conditions you must meet to be eligible for the prize. You have to be under 18 years old and can only win one prize in a 12-month period, so if you get the best score in 2 or more months in a year the prize will go to the runner-up. You must also live in the UK. If you are from overseas we’ll send you Amazon vouchers to the same value as the prize instead. If there is no Amazon store in your country then, sadly, you are ineligible for any prize.

So, let’s find out who has reached the summit of our best scores table in today’s Top 10:

top-ten-ibex-75301463-b

An old face from past months makes their first appearance in September’s Top 10 – it’s Josephleaptutor in 10th place with 68 points

Another new entry in 9th for Catherine Pats with a score of 74

Pajaka has increased their total to 75 but remains in 8th position

Two users share 6th place – TEBS and LABORNEVAS both have 80 points

There’s no change in 5th where temiawofeso still has a score of 84

Saniva remains in 4th place despite increasing their score to 109

Still 3rd it’s Angelin, though now with 117 points

neshan08 has been unable to increase their score and so remains in 2nd with 167

Out in front, and now with an impressive collection of 235 perfect scores, it’s Amimar

Amimar seems at last to be pulling away from neshan08 – 68 points now separate the two of them. But it’s not all over – not by a long shot. New faces are appearing and things are finally hotting-up! Maybe your name will be the next to show up in the Top 10 – just keep on playing those quizzes!

September 18th 2016

Have you been taking part in our Best Score of the Month competition? It makes revision more rewarding if you know there could be a prize for your efforts! Throughout the month we’ve been keeping tabs on how many perfect 10-out-of-10 scores each of our users has managed to tot up. Whoever gets the most will win a nature-themed prize. September’s winner will get an amazing reward – a replica stegosaurus skeleton from the Natural History Museum. This is half a metre long, quarter of a metre tall and worth £275! Click on this link for a sneak preview.

Of course, to win the prize you have to perform better than anyone else in our quizzes – but there are some other conditions that have to be met: Winners must be under 18 years old and can only win one prize in a 12-month period. So if you get the best score twice or more a year the prize will go to the runner-up. You must also be resident in the UK. Winners from overseas will instead win Amazon vouchers to the same value as the prize to be spent in their country. If there is no Amazon store in your country then, sadly, you are unable to receive any prize.

But who is looking down at the rest of the competitors from the top of the heap? Let’s find out in today’s Top 10:

top-ten-giraffe-40073128-b

There’s no action taking place from 6th to 10th with LABORNEVAS, TEBS, Pajaka, DylanBA and ram123 remaining on 80, 79, 70, 67 and 63 points respectively

temiawofeso slips from 4th to 5th, having failed to add to yesterday’s score of 84

Saniva has climbed form 5th to 4th and now has 96 points

In 3rd place Angelin has managed to increase their score to 109

As-you-were in the top two spots where Amimar and neshan08 remain on 212 and 167 points respectively

Still very little action in the Top 10 so, for those of you just behind, now is the time to make your move! There are two weeks left until the competition ends so you can still claim the top spot – just keep on playing those quizzes!

September 17th 2016

We’re over two weeks in to September’s Best Score of the Month competition so, if you haven’t already, it’s time to get down to some serious quizzing! Every month we look at how well everyone has done in our quizzes. The one with the most perfect 10-out-of-10 scores at the end of each month will win a nature-themed prize. September’s prize is a replica stegosaurus skeleton from the Natural History Museum worth a whopping £275! Take a look at it on this link.

If you’d like to win the prize then you must meet the following conditions: only those under 18 years old are eligible to win and only one prize can be awarded to the same user in any 12-month period. If you finish top of the leader board in two or more months in one year then the runner-up will win the prize in your place. As well as that, to get the main prize the winner must live in the UK. If they don’t then in place of the prize they will receive Amazon vouchers of equal value to be spent in their own country’s Amazon store. We regret that some countries do not have Amazon stores so residents are unable to get any prize.

So, let’s see who are the high-flyers in today’s Top 10:

top-ten-eagle-25022946-b

There’s no change from 8th to 10th where Pajaka, DylanBA and ram123 remain on 70,67 and 63 points respectively

TEBS has increased their score to 79 but remains in 7th spot

Amazingly, there is no change in 1st to 6th places where all users remain on the same score as they had yesterday!

Can you believe how quiet our Top 10 is? Only one user managed to increase their score! But you know what that means – those following just behind the Top 10 are gaining ground. The names on the list could be very different tomorrow. In fact, one of them might be yours – just keep on playing those quizzes!

Your Own Words

If this all sounds a bit hard and you’d like a competition a little less taxing, you could have a go at Your Own Words. Not only might you see your name in the bright lights of Nature Matters, you could win yourself a £10 Amazon voucher as well!

We want you to get creative. Write 50-300 words (dependant on your age) about nature.

We also want you to send us any photos you’ve taken, and drawings or paintings you’ve made of the natural world. They can be of almost anything – sunsets, leaves, insects… whatever you like. The best pictures and the best pieces of writing will all be published here in Nature Matters and win their creators a £10 Amazon voucher!

Saniva drops one place to 5th with 82 points

In 4th place, up two places, it’s temiawofeso with a score of 84

Angelin’s score has gone up to 99 but that’s not enough to lift them out of 3rd place

No change in 1st or 2nd where Amimar and neshan08 remain on 212 and 167 points respectively

Not much action taking place at the top but that means there is an opportunity for those just behind to mount their own challenge – and they are! New faces are appearing in the Top 10 every day! You can make your own challenge too – just keep on playing those quizzes!

September 15th 2016

Summer is over and everyone has gone  back to school – but it also means that September’s Best Score of the Month competition has arrived! Every month we keep a record of how well each of our users is doing when playing our quizzes. The one with the most perfect 10-out-of-10 scores at the end of each month wins a nature-themed prize, which for September is a replica stegosaurus skeleton from the Natural History Museum worth a whopping £275! Take a look at it on this link.

There are a few conditions to be met in order to win the prize – the recipient must be under 18 years old and one person can only win one prize in a 12-month period, so if you get the best score in 2 or more months in a year the prize will go to the runner-up. You must also be resident in the UK. Winners from overseas will win Amazon vouchers to the same value as the prize to be spent in their own country. If there is no Amazon store in your country then, sadly, you are ineligible for any prize.

So who is in the running to win September’s competition? Let’s take a look at today’s Top 10:

top-10-62166914-b

bytr_kristiann remains in 10th place but is now on 57 points

There’s a new entry for LABORNIVAS in 9th place with a score of 62

ram123’s fall continues and they are now down to 7th place, still on 63 points

DylanBA slips down to 7th place with an unchanged score of 67

temiawofeso has climbed from 8th to 6th having now collected a total of 76 perfect scores

TEBS remains in 5th place, though now with 77 points

No change in 4th where Saniva still has a score of 78

Angelin has increased their score to 97 but that’s not enough to lift them out of 3rd place

It’s as-you-were in 1st and 2nd where Amimar and neshan08 remain on 212 and 167 points respectively

So August’s runner-up Amimar is still setting the pace for September. Can neshan08 make a comeback and what about Angelin? Only time will tell. But there is still a very long way to go until the end so there is plenty of time for you to get your name into the Top 10 – just keep on playing those quizzes!

No change in 1st to 3rd where Amimar, neshan08 and Saniva remain on 196, 167 and 76 points respectively

Another quiet day in the Top 10 with not much movement. That means opportunities for those outside the Top 10 to make their mark – and they have! We have both a new entry and a re-entry.

Every month we add up the number of perfect 10-out-of-10 scores for everyone playing our quizzes. Whoever gets the most will win a nature-themed prize. September’s winner will get an amazing reward – a replica stegosaurus skeleton from the Natural History Museum. This is half a metre long, quarter of a metre tall and worth £275!

You must also be resident in the UK. Winners from overseas will instead win Amazon vouchers to the same value as the prize to be spent in their country. If there is no Amazon store in your country then, sadly, you are unable to receive any prize.

So, who is strutting their stuff in today’s Top 10? Let’s see:

top-ten-peacock-89081503-b

AjwaGul and temiawofeso (not shown) slip from equal 9th to joint 10th, both still on 46 points

A new entry in 9th place for an old friend, bytr_kristiann who has a score of 47

No change in 7th and 8th where Amira Imran and Tarek remain on 51 and 49 points respectively

DylanBA now has a score of 63, which lifts him up to 5th place level with ram123

It’s as-you-were in 2nd, 3rd and 4th where neshan08, Saniva and TEBS have all failed to add to yesterday’s scores of 167, 76 and 67 respectively

Moving further ahead in 1st place, it’s Amimar who has now collected 196 perfect scores

With their closest rival, neshan08, unable to increase their score Amimar is moving away from the rest of the pack it is still quite early in the competition though. The Top 10 can change and no doubt will. You still have ample opportunity to make your mark – just keep on playing those quizzes!

There are some conditions you must meet to be eligible for the prize. Firstly, you must be under 18 years old and secondly, you can only win one prize in a 12-month period. So if you get the best score in 2 or more months a year the prize will go to the runner-up. You must also live in the UK. If you live abroad then we’ll send you Amazon vouchers worth the same amount as the prize. If there is no Amazon store in your country then, sadly, you cannot receive a prize.

top-ten-koala-56303154-b

We have a new name in the Top 10. In equal 9th place, along with AjwaGul, we find temiawofeso on 46 points

It’s as-you-were for Tarek in 8th spot, still with a score of 49

Amira Imran now has 51 points but remains in 7th place

No change from 3rd to 6th where Saniva, TEBS, ram123 and DylanBA remain on 76, 67, 63 and 55 points respectively

neshan08 has lost the top spot and slipped to 2nd, still with a score of 167

Back in 1st place, having now collected a total of 190 perfect scores, it’s Amimar

So, August’s runner-up, Amimar, has managed to pull away from his closest rival, neshan08, and 23 points now separate 1st and 2nd place. But behind these two the Top 10 is very quiet. New faces are appearing and new challenges being made. You too can make your mark, and maybe even win the prize – just keep on playing those quizzes!

September 10th 2016

September’s Best Score of the Month competition is now in full swing as we enter day 10. Every month we check how well all our users are doing in our quizzes.  The one who gets the most perfect 10-out-of-10 scores will win a nature-themed prize. This month’s winner will receive a replica stegosaurus skeleton from the Natural History Museum worth £275 – a real treat for any dinosaur enthusiasts out there!

In order to win the prize, as well as getting the most 10-out-of-10 scores, there are a few other conditions to be met – you must be under 18 years old and can only win one prize a year, so if you get the best score in 2 or more months in a year the prize will go to the runner-up. You must also live in the UK. If you live abroad then we’ll send you Amazon vouchers worth the same amount as the prize. If there is no Amazon store in your country then, sadly, you cannot receive a prize.

So, let’s find out who has reached the dizzy heights in today’s Top 10:

top-ten-ibex-75301463b

Remarkably there has been no change at all in 4th to 10th places – I know it was Friday yesterday and the start of the weekend but come on guys!

Saniva has managed to increase their score to 76 but remains in 3rd place

The tussle at the top continues between Amimar and neshan08. Amimar now has 162 points but remains in 2nd

neshan08 is still top, having now collected 167 perfect scores

It is still tight at the top between Amimar and neshan08 with only 5 points between them. But the rest of the Top 10 has gone very quiet. That means an opportunity for those just outside of the Top 10 to make their move. Who knows, tomorrow your name might be amongst the high flyers – just keep on playing those quizzes to find out!

Your Own Words

As well as trying  to get the Best Score of the Month, you could also give our Your Own Words competition a go. It’s an opportunity for you to see your own work published here on our world-famous revision website and to win a £10 voucher at the same time!

We want you to write about nature. Send us between 50-300 words (dependant on your age) about an animal, tree, flower… anything you like, so long as it’s to do with nature. You can also send us any photos, drawings or paintings you’ve done of the natural world. They can be of flowers, landscapes, cobwebs, animals or any other part of nature you can capture on your camera or with your pencils. The best pictures and the best pieces of writing will all be published here in Nature Matters and their contributors will receive a £10 Amazon voucher to spend as they wish. (The Amazon voucher is for use in the user’s country so please be aware that several countries do not have an Amazon store and so, sadly, their residents are ineligible for any prize.)

September 8th 2016

We’re one week in to September’s Best Score of the Month competition so, if you haven’t already, it’s time to get down to some serious quizzing! Every month we add up the number of perfect 10-out-of-10 scores for everyone playing our quizzes. Whoever gets the most will win a nature-themed prize. September’s winner will get an amazing reward – a replica stegosaurus skeleton from the Natural History Museum. This is half a metre long, quarter of a metre tall and worth £275! Click on this link for a sneak preview.

Of course, to win the prize you have to perform better than anyone else in our quizzes – but there are some other conditions that have to be met: Winners must be under 18 years old and can only win one prize in a 12-month period. So if you get the best score twice or more a year the prize will go to the runner-up. You must also be resident in the UK. If you live abroad we’ll send you Amazon vouchers to the same value as the prize to be spent in your country. Sadly, not all countries have an Amazon store and if you live afraid that, unfortunately, you cannot receive a prize.

So, one week in, let’s see who are the high-flyers in the latest Top 10:

top-ten-eagle-25022946-b

No change in 10th place where SHAYNE remains on 38 points

emilyelenahanson has not added to yesterday’s score of 45 and so slips down from 7th to 9th

In joint 7th we have Amira Imran and Tarek both with scores of 49

TEBS has climbed two places from 8th to 6th and has collected 5o perfect scores

It’s as-you-were for DylanBA who remains in 5th place on 52 points

ram123 slips from equal 3rd to 4th, still on 63 points

Saniva has made 3rd place their own having upped their score to 65

neshan08 is no longer top of the table, having dropped to 2nd, still on 130 points

Amimar has reclaimed the lead having now collected a total of 132 perfect scores

It’s a tussle at the top with Amimar and neshan08 battling it out with only 2 points between them. But we are only one week in so, even if your name is not in the Top 10 (and there are a lot of names just behind the leaders) there is time yet for you to join the fray – just keep on playing those quizzes!

Your Own Words

If this all sounds a bit hard and you’d like a competition a little less taxing, you could have a go at Your Own Words. Not only might you see your name in the bright lights of Nature Matters, you could win yourself a £10 Amazon voucher as well!

We want you to get creative. Write 50-300 words (dependant on your age) about nature. It could be on your favourite place to visit, your pet, the planets… anything that inspires you, as long as it is nature related. We also want you to send us any photos you’ve taken, and drawings or paintings you’ve made of the natural world. They can be of almost anything – sunsets, leaves, insects… whatever you like. The best pictures and the best pieces of writing will all be published here in Nature Matters and win their creators a £10 Amazon voucher! (Please note that the voucher is to be spent in your country. If there is no Amazon store in your country then, sadly, you will not be able to receive a voucher.)

September 7th 2016

Did you play our Best Score of the Month competition over the summer? August’s ended last Wednesday and we had a winner who is now the proud owner of a pair of RSPB birdcams and a year’s supply of batteries, together worth £220! So now we are in September’s competition. Every month we keep an eye on how well each of our users is doing when playing our quizzes. The one with the most perfect 10-out-of-10 scores at the end of each month will win a nature-themed prize. September’s prize is a replica stegosaurus skeleton from the Natural History Museum worth a massive £275! Check it out on this link.

To win the monthly prize there are some conditions – you must be less than 18 years old and you can win no more than one prize every 12 months, so if you get the best score more than once a year the prize will go to the runner-up. You must also be resident in the UK. Winners from overseas will instead win Amazon vouchers to the same value as the prize to be spent in their country. If there is no Amazon store in your country then, sadly, you are unable to receive any prize.

So, six days in let’s see who has pride of place in today’s Top 10:

Top-10-Lion-77625407b

SHAYNE has fallen from equal 9th to 10th and now has 38 points

There’s a new name in 9th spot – Amira Imran with a score of 40

TEBS is still in 8th place, though their score has gone up to 41

No change in 7th where emilyelenahanson remains on 45 points

Tarek slips from 5th to 6th having failed to add to their collection of 49 perfect scores

Up one place from 5th to 6th it’s DylanBA who has a score of 52

In joint 3rd we find ram123 and Saniva, both with 63 points

Amimar has been dethroned and is now 2nd with a score of 128

Our new leader, with a collection of 130 perfect scores, is neshan08

It’s very close at the top with only 2 points separating neshan08 in 1st and Amimar in 2nd place. But September’s competition has barely started. If your name is not amongst the others in our Top 10 then don’t worry. There is a very long way to go before the competition ends and plenty of time for you to increase your score – just keep on playing those quizzes!

September 6th 2016

Summer is over and it’s back to school but it also means that September’s Best Score of the Month competition has arrived! Every month we keep a record of how well each of our users is doing when playing our quizzes. The one with the most perfect 10-out-of-10 scores at the end of each month wins a nature-themed prize, which for September is a replica stegosaurus skeleton from the Natural History Museum worth a whopping £275! Take a look at it on this link.

There are a few conditions to be met in order to win the prize – the recipient must be under 18 years old and one person can only win one prize in a 12-month period, so if you get the best score in 2 or more months in a year the prize will go to the runner-up. You must also be resident in the UK. Winners from overseas will win Amazon vouchers to the same value as the prize to be spent in their own country. If there is no Amazon store in your country then, sadly, you are ineligible for any prize.

So who is in the running to win September’s competition? Let’s take a look at today’s Top 10:

Top-10-62166914-B

In joint 9th it’s Imogen and SHAYNE, both with scores of 32

A big jump for neshan08, up from 8th place to 2nd and now with a score of 101

Still in the lead with a collection of 116 perfect scores, it’s Amimar

August’s runner-up Amimar is setting the pace for September. Can ram123 make a comeback and what about neshan08? Only time will tell. But there is still a very long way to go until the end so there is plenty of time for you to get your name into the Top 10 – just keep on playing those quizzes!

Slipping from 3rs to 5th it’s TEBS with a score of 39

So we have a new leader – August’s runner-up, Amimar, has leapt up from 9th place and claimed the top spot with a fantastic score of 84

September 2nd 2016

As you know, August’s Best Score of the Month competition ended on Wednesday and we had a winner! The pair of RSPB birdcams and a year’s supply of batteries, together worth £220 are now winging their way to Ushna13 – well done! So now we are in September’s competition. Every month we keep a record of how well each of our users is doing when playing our quizzes. The one with the most perfect 10-out-of-10 scores at the end of each month will win a nature-themed prize. September’s prize is a replica stegosaurus skeleton from the Natural History Museum worth a whopping £275! Take a look at it on this link.

There are some conditions you must meet to be eligible for the prize. Firstly, you must be under 18 years old and secondly, you can only win one prize in a 12-month period. So if you get the best score in 2 or more months a year the prize will go to the runner-up. In addition winners must be resident in the UK to receive the stated prize. Winners from overseas will win Amazon vouchers to the same value as the prize to be used in their country’s Amazon store. Please be aware that some countries do not have Amazon stores and so, sadly, residents cannot qualify for any prize.

So, after one day of quizzing let’s see who has climbed to the top of the best scores tree in September’s first Top 10:

Top-Ten-Koala-56303154b

In 10th place with 8 points it’s farleysnows

A familiar face in 9th spot – it’s SHAYNE on 9

Joint 7th, both with 12 points, it’s ayaan123 and emilyelenahanson

August’s runner-up, Amimar, is currently sharing 5th place with Imogen as they both have scores of 15

DylanBA is 4th with 19 points

In 3rd it’s TEBS

Tarek is 2nd with a score of 36

Our early leader is the late arrival in August’s Top 10, ram123, who has collected 41 perfect scores so far

After being thwarted in August is this going to be Amimar’s month? Or maybe August’s latecomer ram123 will dominate September’s competition. Only time will tell. But there is still a very long way to go until the end so there is plenty of time for you to get your name into the Top 10 – just keep on playing those quizzes!

Have you been taking part in our Best Score of the Month competition? Throughout every month we keep an eye on how well all our users are doing in our quizzes.  The one who gets the most perfect 10-out-of-10 scores each month will win a nature themed prize. August’s best performer will receive a pair of RSPB birdcams and a year’s supply of batteries, together worth £220 – the perfect gift for any bird lovers out there!

There are some conditions you must meet to be eligible for the prize. Firstly, you must be under 18 years old and secondly, you can only win one prize in a 12-month period. So if you get the best score in 2 or more months a year the prize will go to the runner-up. In addition winners must be resident in the UK to receive the stated prize. Winners from overseas will win vouchers to the same value as the prize and we reserve the right to replace the stated prize with an alternative of equal value if it becomes unavailable

Education Quizzes’ Best Score of the Month competition began in June and we had two winners already! Our first champion was marthahome who won a pair of RSPB binoculars and last month maulikshelat was rewarded for his hard work with a Celestron Computerised Reflector Telescope. But now we are in August’s competition and a new prize is up for grabs! Every month we keep a record of how well each of our users is doing when playing our quizzes.  The one with the most perfect 10-out-of-10 scores at the end of each month will win a nature-themed prize. August’s prize is a pair of RSPB birdcams and a year’s supply of batteries, together worth £220, which will let you see the wildlife visiting your garden at all times of day!

In order to win the prize, as well as getting the most 10-out-of-10 scores, there are a few other conditions – you must be under 18 years old and one person can only win one prize in a 12-month period, so if you get the best score in 2 or more months in a year the prize will go to the runner-up.

The early pace-setter Santony slides down the table and is now in 3rd place still on 135 points

CatherineThiam’s climb continues and they are now 2nd with a total of 142

Ushna13 is dominating the Top 10 at present but, as we’ve seen, things can quickly change! With more good performances CatherineThiam could soon catch them up. And Santony might have a resurgence.

August 5th 2016

Have you been taking part in our Best Score of the Month competition? Throughout every month we keep an eye on how well all our users are doing in our quizzes.  The one who gets the most perfect 10-out-of-10 scores each month will win a nature themed prize. August’s best performer will receive a pair of RSPB birdcams and a year’s supply of batteries, together worth £220 – the perfect gift for any bird lovers out there!

There are some conditions you must meet to be eligible for the prize. Firstly, you must be under 18 years old and secondly, you can only win one prize in a 12-month period. So if you get the best score in 2 or more months a year the prize will go to the runner-up. In addition winners must be resident in the UK to receive the stated prize. Winners from overseas will win vouchers to the same value as the prize and we reserve the right to replace the stated prize with an alternative of equal value if it becomes unavailable

So let’s find out who has climbed to the top of the Best Scores Tree in today’s Top 10:

August 2nd 2016

As you know, July’s Best Score of the Month competition ended on Sunday and we had a winner! The Celestron 31150 LCM 114 Short Computerised Reflector Telescope worth £250 is now winging its way to maulikshelat – well done! But now we are in August’s competition. Every month we keep a record of how well each of our users is doing when playing our quizzes.  The one with the most perfect 10-out-of-10 scores at the end of each month will win a nature-themed prize. August’s prize is a pair of RSPB birdcams and a year’s supply of batteries, together worth £220, which will let you see the wildlife visiting your garden at all times of day!

In order to win the prize, as well as getting the most 10-out-of-10 scores, there are a few other conditions – you must be under 18 years old and one person can only win one prize in a 12-month period, so if you get the best score in 2 or more months in a year the prize will go to the runner-up.

meganty and Lanni are joint 9th both with scores of 13

eve is in 7th spot on 14 points

In 6th place is mrssmart who has 18 perfect scores

CHRISS CROSS is 4th with a score of 20

In 3rd is ropox23 on 28 points

A familiar face in 2nd – it’s Santony on 37

Out in front its Ushna13 with a collection of 51 perfect 10-out-of-10 scores

After being thwarted twice is this Santony’s month? Or maybe July’s latecomer Ushna13 will dominate August’s competition.  Only time will tell. But there is still a very long way to go until the end of August’s competition so there is plenty of time for you to get your name into the Top 10 – just keep on playing those quizzes!

The one who got the most is in line to win a Celestron 31150 LCM 114 Short Computerised Reflector Telescope worth £250!

So who has collected the most 10-out-of-10 scores this month? Without further ado, the moment you’ve all been waiting for – July’s final Top 10:

Competition-Winner-B

The month’s 10th best scorer was a recent arrival in the Top 10, papajojo who collected 110 perfect scores

khanhngoc124 was in the running all month but finishes with a score of 124

Another constant name in this month’s Top 10, jrlane2002 comes 8th with 129 points

Santony made a good challenge but ends up 6th on 164 points

Josephleaptutor, a name from June’s Top 10, makes it into July’s where they finish 5th with a score of 167

In 4th is a very late arrival on the scene. Ushna13 only made it into the Top 10 a few days ago yet still made 4th spot their own having collected 171 perfect scores

Dorine held the number one position for a good part of the month but in the end finishes 3rd with a score of 256

The late challenger SHAYNE could not quite finish the job and is this month’s runner-up on 270 points

July’s best performer, collecting a total of 324 perfect 10-out-of-1- scores is maulikshelat

So, after 31 days quizzing, maulikshelat is the deserved winner and will receive a Celestron 31150 LCM 114 Short Computerised Reflector Telescope! This can be used to take photographs of the planets so be sure to send some to us maulikshelat! The prize will be sent without delay.

Top-10-Lion-77625407-b

In 10th place is papajojo still on 110 points

khanhngoc2005’s score remains on 124 and so they have slipped down to 9th

jrlane and bytr_kristiann are joint 7th, both having failed to add to yesterdays totals of 129

Usha13 has soared from 9th to 6th and is now on 147 points

Still 5th is Josephleaptutor though they now have a score of 158

Santony has collected 161 perfect score but it isn’t enough for them to climb out of the 4th spot

No change for Dorine in 3rd place, still on 256

In 2nd SHAYNE’s challenge seems to have stalled – they remain on 270 points

So maulikshelat holds on to the top spot with a score of 318

July’s Best Score of the Month competition has just 3 days remaining, so we are very close to crowning a winner. Throughout each month we keep track of how all our users are doing when playing our quizzes.  The user who manages to collect the most perfect 10-out-of-10 scores at the end of each month will win a nature-themed prize.

Top-10-33711778-b

We have a new entry in 10th place for papajojo on 110 points

Anether fresh face in 9th – it’s Ushna13 with a score of 112

maulikshelat is still in 1st place but has not added to yesterday’s score of 304

Two new faces in the Top 10 even at this late stage. As you can see, things can quickly change! With more performances like the last couple of days SHAYNE could claim the top spot as their own, or will Dorine make a comeback and seize maulikshelat’s crown? Stay tuned to find out!

It may be too late for you to make your mark in July’s competition but August’s begins on Monday. The prize is 2 RSPB birdcams with which to catch the visitors to your garden on camera.

Viyasan1 and Jatin2004 slip down from equal 8th to equal 9th, remaining as they do, on 108 points

bytr_kristiann has risen from 10th to 8th and now has a score of 111

In 7th spot it’s khanhngoc2005 who falls one place after failing to add to yesterday’s total

Santony remains 4th and is still on 159

July 26th 2016

Have you been taking part in our Best Score of the Month competition? Throughout every month we keep an eye on how well all our users are doing in our quizzes.  The one who gets the most perfect 10-out-of-10 scores each month will win a nature themed prize. July’s best performer will receive a Celestron 31150 LCM 114 Short Computerised Reflector Telescope worth £250 – the perfect gift for any budding astronomers out there!

There are 2 conditions you must meet to be eligible for the prize. Firstly, you must be under 18 years old and secondly, you can only win one prize in a 12-month period. So if you get the best score in 2 or more months a year the prize will go to the runner-up.

So let’s find out who has climbed to the top of the Best Scores Tree in today’s Top 10:

Top-Ten-Koala-56303154-b

In 10th place it’s still bytr_kristiann, now on 105 points

No change in 5th to 9th with jrlane2002, khanhngoc2005, Josephleaptutor, Viyasan1 and Jatin2004 all remaining on the same scores they had yesterday

Santony now has 159 points but still drops one place to 4th

In 3rd place is SHAYNE, up from 4th having now collected 173 perfect 10-out-of-10s

Dorine stays 2nd and is now on 256 points

Still 1st, despite not adding to yesterday’s score of 304, is maulikshelat

So now every name in the Top 10 has over 100 points, though only two have more than 200 and just one over 300. Is Dorine’s challenge over or can they reclaim the top spot, or could SHAYNE take the title from maulikshelat’s grasp at the last minute? – stay tuned to find out! As you can see, things can suddenly change in our Top 10. There is still time for you to mount your own challenge but you’ll have to be quick – just keep on playing those quizzes!

After a day away from the Top 10 bytr_kristiann is back in 10th place with a score of 98

Extending their lead in 1st place it’s maulikshelat who now has 298 10-out-of-10 scores

Yesterday was a very quiet one in the Top 10 – the only person whose score changed was maulikshelat in 1st place who has now collected 293 perfect 10-out-of-10 scores. Apart from this it’s ‘as you were’ in 2nd – 10th spots.

I know it’s the summer holidays and revision must take a back seat but, with such little action taking place this could be your chance to snatch the prize from under the current leaders’ noses – just keep on playing those quizzes!

Your Own Words

As well as striving for the Best Score of the Month, you can also have a go at Your own Words.  We want you to write about nature.

Top-10-Lion-77625407-B

Little change in 10th to 5th with jrlane2002, khanhngoc2005, Viyasan1, Jatin2004, bookworm98 and bytr_kristiann all failing to add to yesterday’s scores

SHAYNE has climbed up to 4th and is now on 142 points

Dorine is now on 252 but stays in 2nd

In 1st place it’s maulikshelat who has increased their score to 287

July’s Best Score of the Month competition has been running for 19 days now, so we are about two-thirds of the way through. Throughout each month we keep track of how all our users are doing when playing our quizzes.  The user who manages to collect the most perfect 10-out-of-10 scores at the end of each month will win a nature-themed prize.

To win the prize users must be under 18 years old and can only win once in any 12-month period, so if you get the best score in 2 or more months in a year the prize will go to the runner-up.

So, let’s see who is the smartest so far in today’s Top 10:

Top-10-33711778-b

The early pace-setter jrlane2002 remains on 121 points and has now fallen back to 6th

khanhngoc2005’s score is now 122 but that is not enough to climb the table and they remain in 5th place

Santony had dropped from 3rd to 4th having failed to add to yesterday’s score of 125

The big mover of the day is SHAYNE who climbs from 8th to 3rd and has now collected 127 10-out-of-10 scores

Dorine is still 2nd and now has 247 points

Extending their lead at the top to 27 points it’s maulikshelat who now has a score of 274

Two users are dominating the Top 10 at present but, as we’ve seen, things can quickly change! With more performances like yesterday’s SHAYNE could sooncatch them up. And it’s not too late for you to make your mark – just keep on playing those quizzes!

We’re more than 2 weeks in to July’s Best Score of the Month competition so, if you haven’t already, it’s time to put your skates on!

There are 2 conditions you must meet to be eligible for the prize. Firstly, you must be under 18 years old and secondly, you can only win one prize in a 12-month period. So if you get the best score in 2 or more months a year the prize will go to the runner-up.

Top-Ten-Ibex-75301463-b

marthahome has not added to yesterday’s total of 373 perfect scores but has managed to hold on to the top spot, despite a surge from Viyasan1 in 2nd place who is now on 307. There is no change in 3rd-6th places with lampofo. Thirchoudhry, marcuskendall and nayab all failing to increase their scores. Josephleaptutor is still in 7th but now has 111 points but we have a new entry in 8th spot for RowanRevision on 98. This means that SHAYNE and mfowlin both slip down to 9th and 10th respectively as neither managed to increase their scores.
