On Monday evening our Year 7 Kinver High Spelling Bee team, accompanied Head of English Miss Felton and English teacher Mrs Wilkes to the Invictus Spelling Bee competition held at Crestwood High School.
Our top spelling students in Year 7 had already been narrowed down to an elite team of four through internal heats. Mahaan Chahal, Poppy Lyndon, Colby Hands and Georgiana Pincher-Bradley were fantastic in this very tough competition. They had to spell many ambitious words such as guacamole and onomatopoeia!
Miss Felton, said: “Overall they came 3rd which is a very impressive achievement. A special shout out to Poppy as the member of our team who got furthest in the competition! All four demonstrated brilliant team spirit and represented our school wonderfully. The English department are looking forward to next year’s Spelling Bee!”
