Last Friday the MFL department hosted the final round of the Year 7 MFL Spelling Bee competition- and what a buzzing final it was! The finalists had already claimed victory at the first stage, where they had competed against their fellow classmates. The three highest scorers from each House then reached the final, which saw the challenge move up a gear.
All the participants were asked to learn 100 words from their language of study. Not only did they have to recite them, but also spell them. And if that wasn’t challenging enough for our studious spellers, they could only use the French or Spanish alphabet. As I’m sure you can agree, this was no easy task, or as the Spanish would say – ‘no era pan comido’.
All the finalists amazed us with their astonishing recall and a whole swarm of students came to cheer on their friends. All participants were rewarded for their efforts with sought-after House Points.
Well done to the runners up who received 2 House Points each – Casey F (Spanish 7M) and Leon H (French 7B).
We would particularly like to congratulate our overall winners who were awarded 3 House Points: French Winner: Roberto H (7L) and Spanish Winner: Abigail B (7N)
