Chapter Eight: The Day of Petition

Chapter 8 see The Day of Petition, where people are granted an audience with King Fred. Click the icon to read the chapter. 

 

Imagine that each year Queen Elizabeth II holds a Day of Petition. On this day you can ask her to fix any three things that are wrong in your country, local area, home or anywhere on the planet. 

 

What are your three wishes?

 

 

It's time to write your speech and rehearse it because nobody goes to see The Queen without being prepared. 

 

Once you've written your speech you might like to make a recording in your clearest, slowest, most well-spoken voice. It will be so clear and eloquent that we can almost picture you wearing your finest outfit while you are speaking. 

 

We can't wait to hear what you wish for!
