This will be the last 5 Sentence Challenge until September! I have chosen a picture that I took just for you all. It is of a shop window and you’ll easily be able to see what sort of shop it was. There are lots of things to look at so do  look REALLY carefully.

As usual, I want you to share 5 sentences about this picture.

100 Word Challenge – week 36

Here is this week’s challenge from Mrs Skinner:

This week we are working with another organisation that you may have heard of. It is ‘Send My Friend to School‘.

As the name suggests they help the 67 million children who do not go to school to get an education. Yes there are millions of children who do not have the chance to learn, play and share with others.

The prompt this week is to answer this question:

….Why do you think school is important? ….

It can be difficult to imagine something that you have never experienced. Here is a brief description of one little girl’s experience

Ummi is 12 and lives in Kabiji, Nigeria. Her father is a trader and does not earn enough money to buy the books, uniform or shoes Ummi needs to go to school. Instead Ummi sells snacks at a local market. Ummi says “My friends got to Kabiji Primary School. When I see them going, I wish I could go too.”

The people at ‘Send My Friend to School’ have very kindly offered some T-shirts as prizes to the best 5 entries. Let’s make sure they see your very best work!!

Do pop over to their website. There you will see all the information about the events they hold. you will also see details of their Ambassadors. We are going to be following their progress after the holidays.

The link will stay open until 9pm on 3rd July.

Nanny’s 5 Sentence Challenge

We have a great entry for the 5 Sentence challenge from someone’s nanny, please comment!

On Friday morning I had a large bowl of cereal instead of my usual toast.  Whilst eating I read the back of the cereal packet where there was a blue coupon.  It read,’ if you collect 20 coupons they can be used to help pay for a small puppy to be trained as a Guide Dog for the Blind.’  As I munched my cereal and continued to read I thought that this was a brilliant thing to do and decided to have cereal every day.  It was only 3 weeks later that I went running off to the post box with my 20 coupons to post, feeling so proud that I would be helping someone become independent.
