English Department Host Year 6 Spelling Challenge


On Tuesday 4th December we were delighted that 4 teams of primary school students from Driffield Junior School joined us to take part in a Year 6 spelling challenge. The teams took part in qualifying heats to determine the eight semi–finalists. Several of the heats went to a nail biting “sudden death” as the quality of spelling was extremely high. The final featured 4 excellent spellers with the first and second place students each receiving a prize. The audience were impressed by the difficulty of the words that all the finalists managed to spell correctly. The Year 6 students all agreed that it was an enjoyable day. Helping out were some fantastic sixth form students who worked with the groups to help run the heats and the final round.
