Foreign Language Spelling Bee

Congratulations to Phoebe Rockett who has come 4th in the Regional Final of the Foreign Langage Spelling Bee - over 75,000 students took part.

Phoebe has to know how to spell 200 words in German, and the competition is to spell as many words as possible in 1 minute. The words are spoken to her in English, and she has to spell out the German word using the German alphabet.  She was interviewed yesterday by Oxford Radio. You can listen to it here - it starts at 2hrs 22 mins in.

She has made it to the National Final of the Foreign Language Spelling Bee which is being held at Cambridge University.  Well done Phoebe!
