The school round of the OGAT MFL spelling bee took place on Wednesday 28th March 2018, with our round one class winners taking part, spelling as many words in French or Spanish as they could in one minute! Excitement and tension was high as students took their turn in front of other students and members of SLT. The competitors did themselves proud and it was obvious to see the huge amount of work they had all put into practising and preparing. They all should be very proud of themselves.
The top two performers for each language will go forward to represent Outwood Academy Portland in the summer and add another fifty words to the hundred they have already learnt! Well done to our Spanish winner and runner-up, Connor P Year 7 and Erin M Year 7 and our French winner and runner-up, Abigail H Year 7 and Chloe C Year 7.
Good luck in the finals!
