We're so excited! The first event ever online digital Spellathon championship took place last week. 38,000 people registered to play Spellathon so far. The Hive in Worcester hosted a live Spellathon competition for local schools on 22 May which included with other activities such as storytelling and a bee treasure hunt. The children loved it! It was great to see Spellathon in action!
How did your school do? We'd love to hear your thoughts on the new Spellathon whether you've taken part or not, please help us improve by completing this questionnaire: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/K3PV39H There's an Amazon vouchers prize draw for those completing the questionnaire by 25 June.
Don't forget, you and your students can still qualify (by 10 June) to challenge Stephen Fry on reverse spellling on 14 June - see http://www.spellathon.net/compete-against-stephen-fry for details.
We look forward to hearing from you.
This year's Spellathon is now closed but you can sign up for updates at www.spellathon.net and you'll be the first to know when details for Spellathon 2012/13 are announced.
Complete this survey by 25 June and you could win one of two £50 Amazon vouchers. Not bad for just a few minutes of your time to help shape future Spellathons.
All the best from the Spellathon team
Thank you to everyone who completed the survey. We received great feedback, incorporated many of the suggestions and are delighted to announce that you can now pre register for Spellathon 2012/13.
This year the teachers are in control. We've simplied many features to make it easier for teachers to involve their school, rerecorded words and added more resources such as a misspelt words report. There is a fantastic £10,000 prize and this year it will be easier for schools to claim the 25% back of what they raise, if they wish to do so.
This year will be awesome! Don't miss out - visit www.spellathon.net to pre-register your school.
If you'd like to trial the new spellathon before it goes live in October, contact email@example.com with best number and time to call you.
Thanks! The Spellathon team
