Almost every student in class asked a question; and lots beyond the curriculum was learnt. Thinking of formalising it as an incentive once a week (if the class work well regular part of lesson); and to improvement science engagement/capital.

Questions included: -What causes night and day? -Why do we have a moon? -Why if we are moving around the Sun don't we feel it? -What causes cancer? -How does chemotherapy work? Why does our hair fall out after chemotherapy?

60 Students in French and Spanish Spelling Final

Seven secondary schools took part in the Grand Final of the Harris Federation Modern Foreign Languages Spelling Bee, hosted at Harris Academy Bermondsey last week.

Sixty students from years 7 and 8 competed to translate and spell words in French and Spanish, based on words learnt by students during the year.

Spelling Bee Final

In Year 7 and Year 8 students had to spell French words about activities (e.g. horseriding and swimming), time phrases (e.g. all the time, everyday), clothes (e.g. coat, tights), food (e.g vegetables, meat), places in town (e.g. restaurant, church) and more. They also had to give accents in the new language and use vocabulary such as “je passe” (pass), “trait d’union” (hyphen), “acento” (accent) or “espacio” (space) when they were spelling.

In Year 7 and Year 8 Spanish students had to spell words about opinion (e.g. great, rubbish), colours, countries, places at home (e.g. kitchen, living room) and others.

Teachers planned special activities to help students hone their skills, including spelling bee clubs with intense practise in the weeks running up to the competition. “It was our biggest and best quality event to date,” said David Shanks, Senior Consultant to the Harris Federation.

Maud Risacher, Head of Modern Foreign Languages at HAB said: “Every single student left with a big smile on their face and teachers did too. It was a brilliant and very well attended event. We are looking forward to next year Grand Final, we already have a date in our calendar!”
