500 Words: Black Lives Matter
You may have heard of the 500 Words competition, which is the world’s largest story-writing competition for children. Since 2011, over a million stories have been submitted. Now, the organisers want to hear children’s voices about the themes and issues emerging from the Black Lives Matter movement by writing a story. From 6:30am today until Friday 3 July 2020 at 11:59pm, they are inviting children to respond in no more than 500 words. Use your experiences and feelings to create a story. They have a clear message: your words have the power to change you and the world around you. Find out more by exploring the website where you’ll find lots of inspiration and tips for writing an effective story:
Chris Evans has launched the competition today alongside Angellica Bell and Michael Underwood. Tune into Virgin Radio Breakfast Show from today to keep up with the competition.

With the return of the Premier League, many of you may have been enjoying watching football on television again. It’s a little different as the stadiums are empty. As it’s Art Week, we would like to challenge you to design a new kit for your favourite team. This can include socks, boots and even a new ball! Maybe Saints would look better playing in red and white spots instead of stripes? It’s time for you to get creative! Attached at the bottom of this page is a template, which you may wish to use. Alternatively, just draw your designs on a piece of paper. When creating your new kit, don’t forget to add some sponsors for your team. Think about where you’ll add logos. You might also want to create a flag to support your chosen team. Have fun designing!
