JUNIOR PUPILS HAVE CELEBRATED SUCCESS AT A NATIONAL SPELLING COMPETITION, SPELLING AS MANY WORDS AS POSSIBLE IN A 2ND LANGUAGE, UP AGAINST THE CLOCK.
Routes into Languages Cymru is a collaborative outreach project that aims to increase the number of pupils choosing Modern Foreign Languages by promoting the visibility, uptake and the profile of modern languages in Wales.
One of the flagship events this year is a National Spelling Bee competition for year 7 pupils who study French, Spanish, German or Welsh as a 2nd language. This requires pupils to spell as many words as they can correctly against the clock.
Certificates have this week been handed out to those who participated in the competition, Josh, Warwick, Florence, Zander, Matthew, Ellen, Corey and Oliver.
The remaining six competitors in the spelling bee competition are regional finalists; this means that they go through to the National Finals at Aberystwyth in July.
