Year 7 Spelling Bee!

This half term Mr Coppola is launching an American style spelling bee competition for Year 7 students!

 There will be 20 words to learn each week, 10 in tutor time and another 10 for independent learning.  

You will learn how to prepare for a spelling bee, understand different strategies for spellings and learn and discuss new words. 

Each tutor group will run their own spelling bee to find the best two spellers in the group.  At the end of term there will be a spelling bee competition for the top spellers across the whole year group featuring some of the words that you have learnt plus others.  There will be a trophy, certificate and lots of applause for the winner!
