Penpol School Spelling Bee 2016

Mr Pollard
Spelling Bee Champion 2016
Josie from Class 12

On Wednesday 2nd of November the culmination of the Penpol School Spelling Bee took place, with 16 supreme spellers from across Year 5 and 6 making up the competitors after defeating the rest of their class in a sub-competition in their respective classrooms.

After a lengthy battle covering over 600 spellings, which included such tricky words as fluorescent, questionnaire and embarrassment, Josie, from class 12 was the outright winner, narrowly defeating William (also from class 12).

The children in Year 5, though at a disadvantage this year, being a year younger, will be given the same list of words next year and we look forward to another highly-entertaining and closely-fought spelling battle.
