Pupil from across five ATT primary academies recently took part in the WordMania 2017 competition.
The national competition, run by literacy resource Literacy Planet, tests pupils on a range of word based tasks.
Played via their app on tablets and mobiles, pupils are set tasks which include building words from a set number of letters across a two week period. These tasks encourage pupils to enhance literacy skills, alongside developing key employability and life-skills.
This year, pupils from Admirals, Caldmore, Jubilee, Norwich Road and Sun Academies participated in the national competition as well as competing against each other for an ATT prize.
Over the course over the two weeks, pupils from the five academies created 29,620 words with the resulting winner being Norwich Road Academy who achieved the most points.
Alongside Norwich Road winning a £50 book voucher, four ATT pupils were also presented with certificates and book vouchers for most points scored, total number of minutes played and longest words achieved.
Well done to all those who took part!Back to News
