As part of the School’s Literacy focus, Years 5-9 have been enrolled in Literacy Planet’s ‘Word Mania’ competition.
Pupils have been enrolling and practising in this international competition that involves them making as many words as they can in 3 minutes from the letter tiles they are given.
The first round of the competition begins on 6th November 2017 and it is hoped that pupils will compete as much as they can, both in class and in their spare time. With thousands of pounds worth of prizes, it is hoped that there will be some successful stories ahead.
At the time of writing, St. David’s College’s collective ranking is 26 in the UK. Mrs. Turner, Head of English, hopes that this position will improve as the pupils play more.
Good luck to everyone involved and happy word-building!
