Tom told us one day that he was representing his grade in the spelling bee - 'the what?' you may ask, or at least I had to ask!! So to make sure you are as enlightened as me, a spelling bee is where the kids are in a knock out spelling competition. They are given words in turn which they repeat to show they have heard and then spell out loud.
Tom (in the yellow, the last one left in his grade) did great, although looked like he was not enjoying the whole experience!!
