Primary Spelling Bee

Teams from six of our partner primary schools have spent the morning battling it out to be the victors in our inaugural Bradon Forest Primary Spelling Bee Competition.

Teams are comprised of four of the best Year 5 spellers from each school; St Mary's, St Sampsons, St Francis, Oakhurst, Peatmoor and Bridlewood. Host and 'Spell Master', Mr Johnson, quizzed the groups through a variety of rounds including Animal Anagrams, Team Spelling, Choices, Pyramids and Food & Drink, before an individual spelling round where pupils had to spell their allotted word in front of the rest of the competitors.

It was great to see so much concentration and each team was eager to do their best and spell to win! Looking around the room you could see each pupil mouthing out the spellings as individuals took to the stage. They were willing each other to spell well, even if they weren't on the team.

Mr Johnson said: “I was amazed at the ability these young people displayed. We threw some really challenging words their way and they rose to the challenge. Every single one of them should be proud of what they achieved.”

Congratulations to St Francis for winning with a total point score of 114. Well done everyone who took part, you were all outstanding! O.U.T.S.T.A.N.D.I.N.G.
