Calling all Yr7 & 8 to our Spelling Bee!

Here's the list of the 200 words needed for the Spelling Bee taking place on Friday 23rd Feb 2018 during p5 & 6. Organised by the ever energetic Ms Peddie leading our Enterprise department, we are hoping to raise money to purchase a 3D Printer to make even more amazing products in class and for events. There is therefore a charge to take part (£1) and a charge to watch (0.50p) - money paid via parent pay please!
