Chocolate Cake – Poem by Michael Rosen

I love chocolate cake.

And when I was a boy

I loved it even more.

 

Sometimes we used to have it for tea

and Mum used to say,

‘If there’s any left over

you can have it to take to school

tomorrow to have at playtime.’

And the next day I would take it to school

wrapped up in tin foil

open it up at playtime

and sit in the corner of the playground

eating it,

you know how the icing on top

is all shiny and it cracks as you

bite into it,

and there’s that other kind of icing in

the middle

and it sticks to your hands and you

can lick your fingers

and lick your lips

oh it’s lovely.

Yeah.

Next week is Sports Week!

Please be reminded that you will need to wear clothes suitable for sports and lots of activity (no jeans) all week – Sports Day colours on Tuesday please.

As part of Sports Week next week, you will be learning about why athletes’ careers typically end a lot sooner than most other careers. In preparation for this, please collect research about a well-known athlete. You will need to include:

  • What sport(s) they play professionally,
  • Any information about their fitness and training regime that you can find,
  • Information about the length of the athlete’s career.

You may present your research in a form of your choice, as long as it is presented clearly and to the year group standard.

Sports Week begins on Monday but you have until Wednesday to complete this task. Don’t forget that you need to aim for 60 mins of daily reading and at least 20 mins of Mathletics.

Have a lovely weekend.
