On Friday, we combined our first spelling bee final with a special Comic relief twist. The four finalists, Harvey, Joyin, Isabella and Patrycja, from Year 3, battled it out to decided who would be going forward to face the finalists from the other Portico Schools on 28th March. However, for each spelling they got correct, an unsuspecting member of staff got covered in some delightful concoctions created by Mrs Stephens, our school Kitchen Manager. After an intense battle, Joyin was pronounced the winner and she will now go forward to the Grand Portico final.
A big thank you to Mr Queenborough, Mr Aggus, Ms Murphy and Mr Reeve for being great sports in aid of comic relief! The children really enjoyed the fun and we also raised over £317 for a great cause.
You will also be glad to know that the left over angel delight with rice crispies, beans and spaghetti, sloppy jelly and custard with sweet corn chunks, will not be part of next week’s school dinner menu!
