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!

On Monday the 7th and Tuesday the 8th of January 2019, 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 (which was inconceivably tiring!!).
After two warm up sessions, they coaches helped select the final team. In our Elburton rowing team, there are eighteen of us (including two reserves). The rowing team is a mixture of boys and girls. We all enjoy rowing, even though it is ‘very’ tiring. As for hearing the amazing news that we were officially in the Elburton rowing team, it felt incredible! Lucky for us, we will not have to row for two minutes in the competition. We will only have to row for ‘1’ minute - PHEW!
Not forgetting the coaches, Rhys and Haley, were also a great help so a big thank you to them both!
