The Spelling Bee semi-final Buzz!

Yesterday, our forty semi-finalists competed for the ten places available in the final. Having completed a test of learned spellings to earn ‘lives’, children then went head-to-head in a knockout in front of the rest of lower/upper school. Children were tested on words that they hadn’t previously been given and dazzled audience members with their ability to spell some incredibly tricky words. Both the Y3/4 and Y5/6 contests were extremely tough but children rose to the challenge with such enthusiasm and positivity as the audience supported with gusto! Congratulations to the following children who have progressed to the Grand Final and equally to the other semi - finalists who were so graceful in defeat.
