Five pupils rewarded for academic improvement with Spelling Challenge success

A host of Preparatory pupils have been rewarded for their academic improvement with success in a school-led Spelling Challenge.

Rydal Penrhos staff devised the popular scheme for pupils last year, which has three different levels each with 110 words.

The pupils have been encouraged to work towards their incremental targets of Gold, Silver and Bronze within each stage, and a number have already completed the challenge since its inception.

Under the guidance of dedicated staff at the Prep School, each pupil has been working hard on improving their vocabulary during the academic year, with five more receiving certificates from Deputy Head Alison Hind at their weekly Celebration Assembly on Friday, February 9.

Year 5 pupil Grace Watkins now moves on to the final level of the challenge after successfully gaining her Stage Two Gold Award, with Jasmin Beckett-Donald securing a Bronze certificate in the same stage.

Rounding off the successes were Harley Doyle, Sophie Hall and Isabel Stubbings, who achieved their Stage Two Silver Awards.

Deputy Head Alison Hind, said: “This is yet more proof that our Spelling Challenge is really aiding pupils across all age groups with their academic development, and that is down to their hard work and the support they are receiving from staff members in their pursuit of Gold.

“An increased vocabulary is going to benefit them considerably during the remainder of their school life, and hopefully this is a trend that can continue long into the future.”
