Making links in your learning is important - so we love it when you link your learning from your BNC sessions to other subjects. To help you to do this more in English, we have started the Burnet Book Club: a place for you to find and recommend books that talk about important themes from the news. Take a look at the Burnet Book Club page for our latest reads!
For this week's competition, we would like you to tell us about a book that mentions one of our themes for this half term: DEMOCRACY or PROTEST. These themes do not need to be the focus of the whole story - we just want to hear about when and how they were mentioned.
For example, did one character show their disapproval by going on strike? Were lots of characters fighting for or against something? Or did the characters make a decision in a democratic way, for example, by voting?
The best entries this week will give us the title of the book, the author's name and a well-explained example of protest or democracy. You could also tell us whether you would recommend this book to someone else and why.
You could say something like:
The book I read was (insert book title here) by (insert author's name here). I think the story showed PROTEST / DEMOCRACY because in the story (insert the example from the story). I would recommend this book to (who?) because (insert reason here).
The deadline for entries is Friday January 29th at midday. PLEASE ENTER ONLY ONCE and make sure your work is your own. Good luck!
