August 9, 2022 02:12pm

All Faiths was delighted to participate in the TSAT Spelling Bee final held at Cedar Children’s Academy last week!

Our four finalists – Nora (Year 3), Omeed (Year 4), Lucas (Year 5) and Saule (Year 6) – competed against teams from our fellow Medway Thinking Schools: Cedar Children’s Academy, Gordon Children’s Academy and New Horizons Children’s Academy. The children performed brilliantly and were each presented with a certificate for coming in 2nd place!

The final consisted of five exciting rounds, each designed to test and challenge participants.

In Round 1, pupils were asked to spell words from the National Curriculum. It was clear to see that all children had practiced for this round, as they smashed it! Round 2 was a little different: pupils had to unjumble a range of anagrams, racing against the other schools to get to the answer first. Round 3 was tricky, as it required the children to give the correct spelling of homophones when presented to them in a sentence…their/they’re/there were some brilliant answers in this round from our pupils at All Faiths! A range of very tricky challenge words made up Round 4; it was impressive to see the children trying their best and giving the words a good go, even the really difficult ones! The Spelling Bee ended with an intense, exciting ‘How many words in a minute?’ round, where each school team worked together to spell as many words as they could against the clock.

The competition was very tight and pupils from all schools did a fantastic job. Huge congratulations to our friends at The Gordon Children’s Academy for taking home the trophy!
