Literacy House Competitions

Literacy House Competitions

 

To expand our vocabulary, this term, we are focusing on Greek and Latin word roots.  In our recent house competition, the following students won 10 points for their house by being the first in their year group to complete a word root bingo card with 3 examples of how these roots are used in English today:

 

Year 7 – Jasmine Corfield (Montfort)

Year 8 – Scarlett Greenhalgh (Lacy)

Year 9 – Charlotte Papworth (Montfort)

Year 10 – Louis Meaden (Lancaster)

 

Final House scores for this competition were as follows:

Beaumont = 10

Lacy = 10

Lancaster = 39

Montfort = 20

 

We’re halfway through the term’s reading challenge competition.  In Year 7, the competition is very close with Lottie Boulton and Darcy Bagg at the top of the leader board.  At Easter, we will present a prize to the student in each year group who has read and reviewed the most books this term.  Reviews can be submitted via the book review forms or by speaking to Mrs Hayball at Books and Biscuits, every Monday lunchtime in the Academic Mentoring Room, next to the library.
