Oldham Schools' Spelling Bee - June 2019
This term, we have been taking part in the Oldham Schools’ Spelling Bee, alongside other Oldham schools. This has involved each class taking part in their own Spelling Bee to find three class finalists. The children were tested on their year group spellings, in rounds, until three children remained. The children were very excited and couldn’t wait to show off their spelling skills.
Following this, on 18th June, the KS2 final was held with much anticipation. The children were confident and the parents nervous as the quest to find our overall finalist began. Despite some tricky spellings, the children continued to succeed round by round. Eventually, we got down to the final two and, the overall winner, for our school was Millie from Y5. Millie will now take part in the Oldham final, taking place in the Council Chambers, with the Mayor of Oldham in attendance. The runner up was Isla from Year 3.
Meanwhile, on the afternoon of 20th June, the FS/KS1 final took place in school. All nine finalists were amazing and it was very difficult to get anyone out as they were all fantastic spellers. Eventually, a winner was found and the title went to Florence from YR. Our runner up was Sylvie from Y2.
I would like to say a big thank you to all the teachers and children who took part with enthusiasm over the last few weeks and to the parents who helped to prepare their children for the Spelling Bees.
