SPELLING BEE COMPETITION:
All students in year 8 will take part in the initial stages of the spelling bee competition. The words listed for the competition are based on the most commonly misspelt words in year eight at Hendon School.
The competition will be in a knock out style format and a variety of prizes will be awarded for best overall and for most improved. All students are expected to spend time during the Easter break revising these spellings and to use the strategies they have learned from the literacy sessions to help them improve their spellings.
