The sun is still here but the summer is ending … so let’s find out who won the August YC competition!
We had some sun, some rain and ups & downs all summer long in 2020! Some people stayed home, some went away. Some people longed for school, some worried about it. Across all of that we had another round of our Young carers competition asking about your summer, what it means to you and what you did. We are delighted to say competition was so fierce the judging panel chose not a single one but JOINT winners! They couldn’t choose and did the unthinkable … chose two! Below we are very humbled to share the joint winners and our fantastic runner ups entries for all to see and thanks again to everyone who entered!
Written by Jay, age 10. One of our joint winners:
Summer means to me playing in the garden, more summer evenings in the park, my family watching me play football and of course my birthday!
During the summer we go swimming, have a caravan holiday, have yummy BBQs and plenty of ice creams!
In the past I have had sleepovers with my friends, had my swimming pool out in the garden and lots of trips to the park In the summer we always go to the seaside, go strawberry picking and have a party for my birthday!
My best treats are ice cream, Slush puppies milkshakes and BBQ’s!
My dream summer would be to go the beach, have my family round and splash around in the paddling pool with my sister holly and BBQ for tea.
Written by Eric, age 13, My Summer. Also joint winner:
I love summer, it makes me feel energized to the brim,
With the bright sun shining and the children playing,
From eating ice cream or having a swim.
I went to Durdle Door a couple of days ago,
It was the best beach I’ve ever been to.
As different shades of blue ran through the sea,
The waves splashed about and the rock’s flowed away,
Everyone was very happy and excited,
They all reminded me of a lustrous rainbow.
Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and purple.
Everywhere I looked I saw pictures get taken with big smiles on their faces,
With the beautiful cliffs hanging over us in all different directions,
North, east, south west,
You name it.
The summer treats were amazing,
From drinking fizzy drinks to having an ice cream,
Or going onto a cruise to different destinations.
Summer treats always turn your day around,
Like eating an ice cool watermelon or a delicious cheesecake.
They really are special,
But that’s what I like about summer,
You get to eat and do things you normally wouldn’t.
A dream to the La Concha beach,
Where I would spend my dream summer,
The roasting hot sun tanning everyone on sight,
The waves crashing onto land,
While the children get wet and cold,
And I lay on my luxurious beach chair,
Helping myself to an iced cold lemonade and a juicy watermelon,
I would spend my day at the beach,
And in the night, I would relax in my summer house.
Big thanks to our runner up – Sarah, aged 10 (and a happy summer birthday to you!)
Summer meant it is my birthday and I turn 11 and that is what summer means to me. In my free time I have nothing to do so I watch my I pad I don’t really have a favourite treat so I eat what teat my brother gets but my favourite drink is flavour water. We don’t have any family traditions my dream summer would be to have a big have a big swimming pool in our garden. In the past we have been going to the park.
September’s coming to you next …
