In this week’s issue of Weekly News, we have: Supporting a Good Cause (an update on the teddies and the website; wait and see what it’s about), a new poll, and a story from around the world!
Firstly, Ted and Ellie have decided to start an organisation to protect the environment and the habitat of endangered creatures and plants. It is called the Honk Society, which stands for Helping Our Natural Kingdom. All the teddies agree that it is essential to protect our environment, all animals and plants in the world. However, some things that people do in their every day lives destroys and damages the beautiful natural wonders around us. How can we stop this from happening? Well, one thing that Ted and Ellie want to make crystal clear, is that every tiny action counts. Even if you just turn your lights off an extra one or two hours every day, that would be saving an extra 365 to 730 hours a year, and if awareness is spread and everyone in the world does it, we would save approximately 2920000000000 to 5840000000000 hours of electricity and energy a day. To help you understand what could help the environment and why, Ted, Jack and Ellie will be creating a new page called Honk, with updates on the society and what you can do. Hopefully, they will start posting by next week, as they are very excited to start writing about Honk!
Next up, here are the results from the latest poll! We voted on books vs technology and asked you to comment as well as Ted and Ellie’s friends and family giving their opinion, too! The result was 56% to technology and 44% to books. It turns out that most of you prefer technology, but many people still appreciate the creativity and skill that went into writing the book, and the wonder and joy that comes from reading it. Believe it or not, though, Ted and Ellie have had another squabble. Ellie says that English is by far the best subject, when you can be creative and express feelings and thoughts through stories and poems. Ted, however, said that Maths was definitely top, because you can solve complex problems and fun puzzles while exploring lots of different areas of the subject. Jack said that is pranking was a subject, it would be his favourite, but if there were was only boring school subjects to choose from, he would pick science so he could find out more information for Honk (and learn about chemical reactions for his exploding cola bottle pranks).

Finally, here is a story from around the world, but there’s a twist: can you guess if it’s real or rubbish? The Bank has been robbed! On the 24th April, the cash was unsupervised, making it easy for the thief to steal some money. The prime suspect is a suspicious meatball with feet! He was mysteriously wandering around the scene of the crime, at the approximate time of the robbery. Evidence suggests that the meatball wanted the money because he had some debts to pay and had previously been accused of theft from a luxurious hotel near Frimley. Bruno Mars was there at the time, practising his dance routinel, but he reportedly says that he noticed nothing, despite multiple eye witnesses mentioning him hesitantly creeping towards the meatball, whose face was concealed behind a mask. There is a major investigation taking place, and police are still preticaciously scrutinizing the crimes scene for more evidence.
