What is the BWA Spanish Spelling Bee?
The Spanish Spelling Bee is a spelling competition in Spanish!
You will be given words that you have learnt during your Spanish lessons and spell them using the Spanish alphabet.
How will the BWA Spanish Spelling Bee work?
During your Spanish lessons you will be revising the alphabet (you can get a head start as the alphabet is already in your Spanish books). Then in two form times you will be practicing using the alphabet to spell words in Spanish. In the second form time you will complete a mini spelling bee to find your form finalist. Your form finalist will then be entered into the Spanish Spelling Bee Final which will take place during an extended AOW the final week of term!
Who will participate in the the BWA Spanish Spelling Bee?
Todos los años 7s! EVERYBODY!
During your form time and lessons you will all be revising the alphabet and practice spelling Spanish words. Everyone will take place in the mini Spanish Bee during form time. The form Spelling Bee champions will then be entered to the final! Even if you are not the finalist – they will still need all your support at the final!

Why are we doing a Spanish Spelling Bee?
Learning the phonetics of the Spanish alphabet is so important to help with the pronunciation of Spanish words! También – what’s better than learning another language and having fun whilst you’re doing it!
