This was a really fun week for creative entries. There was a huge variety of different ideas and some truly unique storytelling. Thanks for the time and effort that went into them, we thought they were fantastic! Our secondary school winner was the first to mention a fishing net, a perfectly practical and very valuable item, nicely told. Our primary school winner kept things simple with fresh water, but did so vividly; we were thirsty just reading it! Well done everybody!
You can read the winning entries in the orange boxes below.
WEEKLY COMPETITION #11
This week, we’d like you to imagine that you’re shipwrecked on a desert island.
What’s the most valuable item that could wash up on the shore?
You might want to think twice about the word 'valuable' in this question! We’d like to see creative ideas in your entry; perhaps you would like to write as if you're on the island and have just found the item? Although storytelling is important here, we really want you to be telling the story of WHY that item is valuable...so get thinking!
Good luck! Winners will be announced on Friday.
