SMMA Spring Spelling Bee Competition!

21 March 2016

On Friday 18th March, SMMA once again held their KS3 Spring Spelling Bee house competition.

This year, eight finalists made it through after a tough preliminary round on the Wednesday. The Lecture Theatre was packed with spectators and supporters and there was a definite buzz in the air as the new Year 7s challenged the more experienced Year 8s.

All words were taken from the SMMA Spelling List, with an extra set of Easter themed words to fit with the season.

Miss Brewer and Miss Earle hosted the occasion – Miss Brewer, as always, bringing an air of authenticity to the event as Spelling Bees were a compulsory part of her education in America.

Many thanks go to all the students who came to support with a special mention to Mr Bowles who helped manage the excitement in the room! We look forward to seeing it all happen again next term for the SMMA Summer Spelling Bee!
