In December, we had the opportunity to attend a rowing activity where there were seven rowing machines and we each took it in turns to row. We each had a go at racing against six opponents. Each rowing experience lasted for two minutes.
After two warm up sessions, the coaches will return in January to help select the final team. In our Elburton rowing team, there will be eighteen of children (including two reserves). The rowing team is a mixture of boys and girls. The children all enjoy rowing, even though it is ‘very’ tiring.
Reading is an inspiration,
Throughout every generation.
In everything we do,
There’s no doubt that it brings out the best in you.
Kings, queens, knights and more,
All read books inspiring their imagination to soar.
Of course the best of them all is a book that never bore,
Each and every book is written to thrill;
They shall bring out the greatness - you know they will!
A journey through the generations,
Gives us ideas and inspirations.
Taking us to unknown places,
Filling our minds so there are no more empty spaces.
Books are capable of taking you to snow-peaked mountains,
they are overflowing knowledge fountains.
Life itself is an adventure,
But reading a book is somewhere else to venture.
Fire-breathing dragons or a timid mouse,
A towering mansion or a candy house.
If you’re feeling sad or blue,
There’s always a perfect story for you.
Books are something we shouldn’t ignore
Because they correct our many flaws.
We love our books in every way
So we hope you have an awe-inspiring World Book Day!
