Year 5 and 6 Spelling Bee 🐝
Date: 22nd Mar 2018 @ 7:08pm
After much practise and in school heats, five children from our school attended the the first inter-cluster Spelling Bee finals. Ourselves and 4 other schools battled it out to see who would become this years Spelling Bee champions.
We took part in three rounds. The first round we worked with our team and wrote the words on a whiteboard, in the second we worked together to confer the answwer and took turns to spell it and in the final round we each spelt out individual spellings.
The year 5 competition was extremely close with three teams including Joey's taking part in a challenge words round. These spellings were very tricky and really put our brains to the test.
Next it was the year 6's turn.
All our hard work paid off and we performed brilliantly both competitions were very tight. In the end there was only one mark separating the year 6 winners.
Here are the results
St Jsoeph the Worker 3rd Palce
St Joseph the Worker 2nd Place
I am so proud of all the children for practising their spellings for the heats and to those who took part in the finals. The children's behvaiour was exemplary and they showed true Joey spirit throughout! Well done! :)
