S-U-P-E-R Spellers at our first Co-operative Academies Primary Spelling Bee

On Friday some of our S-U-P-E-R  S-P-E-L-L-E-R-S were joined by students from Brownhill and Oakwood Primary Academies for the first Co-operative Academies Trust Primary Spelling Bee. 
 
We had alot of fun competing against our sister academies and practising our spelling at the same time. In school the students had been learning a list of words and then doing mini spelling bees in class. Then the best speller from each class was chosen to go to the final. 
 
There were 2 students per year representing each academy, these were then narrowed down to one in a quick fire round. The winners of this round then went on to compete against the other academies. 
 
Year by year each student took it in turns to spell out one of the words they had been practising. As the round went on, the words got harder and harder until there was only one speller left. This speller got a medal for their year and points for their school. 
 
In the end we won three medal in Years 1, 2 and 4. This meant we got the most medals and won the overall Spelling Bee trophy! All of our spellers did so well, and we are very proud of them.
 
We're already looking forward to next year. Go team Woodlands!
