Well done for your entries to our first competition and congratulations to fiery_raisin of Boutcher CofE Primary A and efficient_moment of Shouka Prep Girls School, who are the winners this week!
Every week winners are awarded 3 stars for their winning entries!
The news is full of numbers and statistics, so for this week’s competition, we’re asking you to think creatively about them.
First think about the headline: "Teenagers spend too much time on social media". Then look at the numbers below it. What might "a fifth", "36%" or "95%" stand for in this news story?
Your job is to pick one of the numbers, say what you think it represents for this news story and explain why. Your ideas must be linked to the news story about teenagers and social media.
- You could think about different social media platforms, the amount of time teenagers spend on social media or how they feel about it
- You could phrase your answer like this: I think the statistic is “a fifth/95%/36% of X…X, because….”
- You can’t win if you copy your answer from someone else
You can only enter the competition once in the form of a comment. If you comment on another entry it will count as your entry, so please be aware of this.
The deadline for entries is this Friday 28th October. Good luck!
