Jump! Mag Writing Competition for Girls – Zara, Six Years Old


Zara was the youngest participant in the Jump! Mag Writing Competition for Girls. We think she has a great career ahead of her as a writer, and look forward to her further contributions to Jump! Mag.

I have my own bus that has my name on the front in big red letters. I’m very lucky because I have lots of toys and a little sister who is annoying sometimes but very funny. I like reading Roald Dahl books and I like going to school.

My favourite part of school is lunch time because I can play on the tyres. I wrote a story at school about a dragon who was guarding a castle with a prince and a dinosaur inside.

When I grow up, I want to be like Mummy because she has beautiful hair and I would like to be a coffee shop lady and work in Mummy’s coffee shop.

love my teacher, Mrs Rogers because she teaches me lots of things.

I don’t think it’s fair that some girls aren’t allowed to go to school. But I hope they all have a Mummy to look after them.

My favourite thing to do is digging holes in the garden. I am going to dig to Australia.

The best thing about being a girl is playing with girls toys. I like hair style barbies. I used to want to be a hairdresser but now I want to work in Mummy’s shop.

I don’t like bedtime or eating horrible food.
