EGA Spelling Bee Finals 2018!!
Since September 2018, French and Spanish students in Year 7 have been preparing to take part in a Spelling Bee competition! The aim of the Spelling Bee is to improve students’ confidence in the language they are learning and to practise spelling a variety of words using the alphabet correctly. All students learned 50 words off by heart in either French or Spanish and they also had to learn how to say the different accents.
The students with the highest scores in the class competitions from each language were selected to take part in the EGA finals on Tuesday 27th November!!! Here are the finalists from each class:
Spanish: 7Z - Menabe Andargachew and Zahra Newaz, 7A – Fardousa Ahmed and Sara Jlok, 7L – Iman Jirow and Ruweda Ahmed.
French: 7E – Annachiara Senatore and Fariha Bhuiyan, 7H – Elizabeth Michail and Yasmin Abdulrahman Ahmed, 7T – Umme Hashmi and Elena Fusha.
The day of the finals was extremely exciting and all the participants, although incredibly nervous, showed great courage and displayed their amazing language skills.
The Languages Faculty are extremely impressed by all of the competitors’ determination and the contagious enthusiasm that made the Spelling Bee such a special event- thank you!
We are pleased to announce the overall winners of the Languages Spelling Bee! HUGE congratulations go to:
