Spelling Bee Grand Final 2022
All Year 7 & 8 French and Spanish classes recently undertook an Interhouse challenge to learn twenty-five words each in their respective language classes.
The objective was to build on phonics work, reinforce spelling and the meaning of high-frequency words, work on strategies for memorisation, and finally provide a fun activity for all Year 7 and 8 students.
On Thursday 16th June, our 12 finalists came head-to-head to participate in our Year 7 and 8 Spelling Bee Grand Final in front of their respective houses.
In preparation for this, the finalists had to re-cap the twenty-five words that they had learned in their respective stages, and then learn an additional twenty-five new words. They were tested to see how many of these words they could translate and spell in one minute.
Their performance was amazing and once again the results were very close, with one point separating some of the contestants and several tied scores.
Congratulations to the following students:
- Year 7 French winner: Atticus Lee (07K1)
- Year 8 French winner: Shayne Tan (08M1)
- Year 7 Spanish winner: Jade Wong (07S1)
- Year 8 Spanish winner: Kotomi Matsuyama (08K1)
Scores from French and Spanish were added together for each house. Well done to everybody who took part and for the positive manner in which the Year 7 and 8 audience supported the finalists.
Bien fait! ¡Buen trabajo!
