What a fantastic year we’ve had for spelling at St. Stephen’s Primary School. We had a whole-school spelling bee where every child had a chance to show off their spelling skills and competed within their classes to find a class winner. Each winner competed in a school-wide competition to find 1st, 2nd and 3rd positions in Reception, KS1 and KS2. All of the finalist worked extremely hard to learn the challenging spellings we gave them.
1st place – Kavan RIN
2nd place – Nabeeha RMW
3rd place – Khadija RIN and Avadhut RMW
1st place – Athul 1GD
2nd place – Abdur-Rahman 2ZH
3rd place – Prashil 1SC, Aliha 1DT, Safa 2JW and Aurav 2SH
1st place - Tanusri 6SR
2nd place – khateja 4TB
3rd place – Mariam 6TN, Gurtej 3JM, Musfirah 3CP, Amina and Ruthba 4EW
All of the winning children in KS2 were then given 100 more spellings and entered a year group competition. The winners worked hard to learn these spellings.
Year 3 – Gurtej 3JM
Year 4 - Ruthba 4EW
Year 5 – Anayah 5JW
Year 6 – Tanusri 6SR
These children were invited to take part in the Newham Semi- finals where we only just missed a place in the finals.
