 Following the success of last years event, The 2018 school spelling bee will be held on Friday 29th June-If your child has entered, please find the word lists below for each year group-just incase you want to start practising already!

We know how important spelling is and have recently held a Spelling workshop for parents/carers. If you missed it or would like to have a look at some of the resources that we discussed, then check out the powerpoint below. Let's get spelling right! (not write or wright!)
