The Great Spelling Bee

Today we have launched a spelling initiative for Years 2 to 6, called The Great Spelling Bee. We are encouraging pupils to learn their Year group's word list, which you may already be familiar with. We look forward to celebrating the progress the children make with their spelling over the next few weeks. The Spelling Bee 'Spell Off' will take place on 8th December. We hope you have fun learning to spell lots of new words! Please see the accompanying document to support your child with this challenge at home.
