Weekly Competition #4 Diary Entry - Winners Announced!
What a joy it was to read your diary entries this week. We recommend you all take a read of each others' entries as there are some superb examples of empathy and speaking up from another perspective. Well done to everyone who has taken part. Stars have been awarded to entries which showed a particularly good understand of the crisis in Hong Kong and spoke up clearly and thoughtfully about the difficulties people there are facing.
Our primary school winner is eloquent_recipe, who wrote beautifully about the feeling of disappointment in Hong Kong and the uncertainty about the future.
loyal_violin was our secondary winner. They spoke very firmly about the thoughts and emotions that come with feeling let down by other countries, and raised a number of very interesting questions that remain unresolved.
Thanks for all your entries - another bumper week! Why not challenge yourself to enter the next competition?
People affected by the stories in the news will be feeling different things. So this week, we would like you to think about the Hong Kong news stories that you will have looked at in your Burnet News Club.
Choose someone affected by events in Hong Kong. This could be someone you have already learnt about, or a made-up person.
Write a diary entry for them. In your entry, say who you are writing from, and picture yourselves in their position:
-What will you have seen recently
-How has this made you feel? Why?
-What do you think will happen next?
The best entries will use the SPEAKING UP skill to help other people understand what they are experiencing and feeling. 100 words is your limit!
Winners will be announced on Friday. Good luck!
