Stage 2: School Competition

v Teachers should allocate the extra 50 words to the autumn term class winners (word lists are attached in the teachers’ pack).

v Class winners should meet weekly to test each other: this could be done at break or lunchtime. Additionally, the class could test their winners each week as a starter or plenary.

v A School Competition should be held by Spring Half Term. The same rules apply as for Stage One, the only difference being that students will be tested on 100 words rather than 50 words.

v The names of four winners should be submitted.
