New Year! New Me!

New Year’s Eve is celebrated on December 31st, the last day of the calendar year.

People enjoy getting together with family or friends and counting down the hours, minutes and seconds to the start of a brand new year. You might even be allowed to stay up extra late!

In London, Big Ben chimes to tell us when the new year has arrived, then a huge firework display takes place on the banks of the River Thames.

New Year’s Day is on January 1st and is often seen as a fresh start. Many people like to make new year resolutions which are personal goals that they aim to work on throughout the year.

Some examples: Getting homework in on time, keeping your bedroom tidy, doing more exercise or eating more healthily.

Comment Below what your resolution is.

Instructions

How to Wash Your Elephant

Has your elephant rolled in mud? Elephants need to be kept clean or they can often become unhealthy. Use this handy set of instructions to ensure you keep your pet squeaky clean. Method

1.Firstly, prepare your elephant for their bathing session in an area with plenty of space. Make sure that your animal is calm, well-fed and content. It may help to tickle their tummies to relax them if they are nervous about getting wet.

2.Next, prop up the step ladders beside your pet otherwise it is impossible to reach the top of their body. Climb the ladders carefully as you carry the hosepipe. Use lukewarm water to completely soak your elephant’s skin.

3.After that, squeeze a whole bottle of elephant shampoo onto the animal’s back. Use the sweeping brush to reach up and scrub every part of their dirty skin. Start at their back and work downwards to their feet.

4.Afterwards, rinse them off until all of the soap suds are gone. Be very careful not to let any of the shampoo drip into your pet’s eyes as the pain could cause them to suddenly charge at you.

5.Now, you need to make your elephant lie down. A tasty bun may be helpful to convince them to go down to the ground. Use the sand paper to file the dead skin from the bottom of their feet and the nail clippers to trim their toenails. As a result, you should watch out for sharp bits of flying elephant toenail!

6.Finally, you need to gently clean your elephant’s nostrils and ears using the feather duster. This can be very dangerous. Move quickly away from your elephant’s trunk if they begin to shake or start to breathe more heavily. You do not want to be in the firing line of a powerful elephant sneeze.

Enjoy your spotlessly clean mammal but keep a close eye on them near any muddy puddles!

Year 3: Making your mind up!

You’ve got to speed it up,

And then you’ve got to swim deep down.

No time to play around.

You’ve gotta get right on,

You’ve really got to have no doubt!

Coz we’re really sure that it’s something everybody’s gonna talk about.

So come on decide that the time’s arrived,

For making your mind up!

 

Don’t let your indecision,

Keep you from the prize,

Aladdin it’s your mission!

Don’t let others change your mind.

 

And then you’ve really got to toughen up,

Aladdin can you see the light?

Dive for your money and take a chance

And it’ll turn out right.

So come on decide that the time’s arrived,

You’re making your mind up!
