A buzz at the Year 7 Spelling Bee
08 November 2019
There was no let-up of pace for Year 7 as they took part in a Spelling Bee on the last day of the half term. The girls gathered in the Octagon as the dynamic Mr Skilbeck took to the mic to quiz his ‘buzzing’ competitors.
In houses, the girls were asked a series of quick-fire spellings on Science, Music and Languages, Art and Technology, Classics and Humanities. They were also asked by Mrs Ehiogu to define a plethora of words such as ‘sublimation’, ‘nominative’ and ‘carbohydrate’.
The atmosphere was tense as representatives from St Francis and St David’s drew on 13 points each. The lights were dimmed as one brave soul faced another in a tie-break question, resulting in the 2019 Spelling Bee Champions being announced as St Francis. Well done to all girls for taking part.
