Year 7 and 8 Spelling Bee Competition 2022

It is that time of year again when we have the Key Stage Three Spelling Bee Competition in our quest to boost Literacy across the Curriculum. Through this competition, we endeavour to encourage our students to learn to spell a number of words that are subject specific. It is our intention to enable the students to extend their vocabulary so the definitions for the words are also included in the Spelling Bee Booklet.

During the Spelling Bee Competition, students will be tested on a variety of spellings from each subject in the curriculum. The booklet will be made available on the College website for every student to access so they can practise their spelling along with learning new words. The spellings are intended to be challenging.

The Year 7 and 8 tutors have been given a list of fifteen words that have been randomly selected from different subjects. They will then give this spelling quiz to their tutees and the top three spellers from each tutor group will participate in the Spelling Bee Competition.

The knock- out round of the competition will take place after half term in order to select the top three spellers in both the G and K side from each year group. Each participant will be given merits and a certificate of participation. The first, second and third place winners in year 7 and 8 will go head - to - head to see who will be crowned the Key Stage Three Spelling Bee Champion. Along with attaining merits, the champions will also be awarded with a trophy.

Although only a few students will take part in the competition, please encourage your child to learn to spell the words and also learn the definitions because they will acquire new words, improve their spellings and ultimately develop and extend their vocabulary.
