Time for the winners!
Well done to everyone who entered the competition this week! All of your entries proved that you’ve been paying lots of attention to the news and we were blown away by the amount of detail in your answers. But there can only be two winners... and this time they are:
mirthful_rainforest of Preston Manor School for their clear reporting of the protests at Capitol Hill
jovial_eel of Lyons Hall Primary School, who used their problem-solving skills to critically compare police reactions to protests in America.
Excellent reporting from both of you!
A new Issue means the start of some new competitions! This half term, you'll get the chance to explore protest and talk about whether it works. So...
For the first competition of the Issue, we would like you to use your listening skills.
What protests are happening in the news? Research what's going on and then report back with what you've heard.
The best entries will explain how people are protesting, why they are protesting and where the protest is happening. Don't forget to tell us where you found your information.
For example, you could say:
The protest that I heard about from the news was in (insert place here). People were protesting by (insert type of protest here) because (insert reason for protest here). I found this out from (tell us your news source here).
Fancy a challenge? Do some extra research to tell us your opinion on what you've found out.
The deadline for entries is Friday January 15th at midday. PLEASE ENTER ONLY ONCE and make sure your work is your own. Good luck!
