Getting Ready for the National Spelling Bee by Shannon

ARK Kings Academy Spelling Bee Team 2014

This month in school we have been taking part in a spelling bee competition. We have been doing it so that 3 people out of each year group can go to London to compete against other schools in the ARK Schools National Spelling Bee competition!

I loved taking part in the spelling bee competition because I like to spell hard words and compete against other people. I found the word circumstantial hard but I got it in the end.

Sadly, I was not selected for the ARK Kings team that will be travelling to Evelyn Grace Academy in London this Thursday for the National Spelling Bee competition. I hope they do well at the competition and I get the chance to compete in future competitions.

About Francis Clarke

I am an experienced marketing and communications professional with a passion for digital technology and improving social outcomes. I am currently working as a freelance digital communications specialist after holding strategic roles in the public, private and charity sectors. You can find out more about my career to date over on LinkedIn. Outside of work, I am a keen blogger, social media user and campaigner. I use this blog to explore a range of issues, both professional and personal. You can expect to see posts on: Public policy Digital rights Innovation (both tech innovation and social) Politics, particularly my experiences as a Labour Party member and activist Photography Goings on in Birmingham and my home neighbourhood of Bournville Cats You can normally find me on Twitter, @francisclarke. I am on Facebook, just about, but I tend to use the network sparingly because, to paraphrase George Bernard Shaw, I can be an unsocial social media person. As well as writing this blog, I also blog at Cats of the Campaign Trail, where I offer a sideways look at Labour Party politics at branch level in between documenting the cats I see whilst leafleting and doorknocking for Labour in Bournville. I also manage communications for Bournville Social Media Surgery and Open Rights Group Birmingham. We are always looking for new supporters for both projects so please do think about coming along to one of our meet-ups if you can spare the time.
