You should have all heard about the English Speaking Day Video Competition. All you need to do is make a short video on the theme of pets. It can be about your pet, about pet care or even an issue like why pet shops should be closed.
Entries need to be given to Ms Howard or Mr Green by November 14. Remember – the prize is TWO tickets to Ocean Park – so you can enter as a team if you like.
