2014 EXTRA Spelling Quiz
Last Thursday, six Tainui pupils went to Tahuna Intermediate to compete in the 2014 EXTRA Spelling Quiz – Morgan, Amber, Sam, Tamara and ourselves. At the Quiz there were ten rounds. The hardest one for Merric and some others was Round 8 called, ‘All or Nothing’ because we had to work out what each word was from just five clues!
Sadly, Tainui didn’t get any medals but we tried our best! At one point Merric said, “Want another mint?” He had brought mints to the quiz to help us relax so we could think and work calmly.
We are very good spellers but not quite good enough to win this quiz. Spelling is fun!
