Thank you to everyone who entered our competition this week! We were very impressed by the quality of your explanations. The best of the bunch this time are…
clever_atom of Faringdon Community College, who carefully compared the problems and opportunities of a coffee shop, a fish and chip shop and a Tesco during lockdown
discreet_drum of Upton Cross Primary School, who thought about the perspectives of both the staff and customers of Peacocks, a library and Mark One.
Fantastic thinking from you both - well done!
In Session 3 of our Issue about the future of work, we ask you to think about the problems and opportunities that the businesses on Roman Road in London have experienced because of covid-19.
For this week's competition, we would like you to think a little closer to home by telling us about the businesses on a street near you. To enter, you should tell us about problems and opportunities that THREE businesses in your home-town might have experienced because of the pandemic.
Which business might have faced the biggest problems? Which found opportunity? Maybe you know a business that experienced both problems and opportunities? To get you going, here's a structure you could use if you want to:
On a street near me, there is a (insert business here), a (insert business here) and a (insert business here).
I think the business that faced the biggest problems was (insert business here) because...
I think the business that found the best opportunities was (insert business here) because...
TOP TIP: try to choose three very different businesses as this will give you a range of things to consider. For example, you could think about how they make money, if their workers were allowed to work, or whether customers might want their product during a pandemic.
The deadline for entries is Friday November 27th at midday. PLEASE ENTER ONLY ONCE and make sure your work is your own. Good luck!
