Remember to include:

  • Title
  • Subheadings (the 7 continents)
  • Capital Letters

The Time We Spring-Cleaned the World

 

The world it got so busy,
There were people all around.
They left their germs behind them;
In the air and on the ground.

 

These germs grew bigger and stronger.
They wanted to come and stay.
They didn’t want to hurt anyone -
They just really wanted to play.

 

Sometimes they tried to hold your hand,
Or tickled your throat or your nose.
They could make you cough and sneeze
And make your face as red as a rose.

 

And so these germs took over.
They started to make people ill,
And with every cough we coughed
More and more germs would spill.

 

All the queens and kings had a meeting.
“It’s time to clean the world up!” they said.
And so they had to close lots of fun stuff,
Just so these germs couldn’t spread.

 

We couldn’t go to cinemas
Or restaurants for our tea.
There was no football or parties,
The world got as quiet as can be.

 

The kids stopped going to school,
The parents went to work less.
Then a great, big, giant scrubbing brush
Cleaned the sky and the sea and the mess!

 

Mums started teaching the sums,
Big brothers played with us more,
Mums were in charge of homework
And we read and played jigsaws galore!

 

The whole world was washing their hands
And building super toilet roll forts!
Outside was quiet and peaceful,
Now home was the place for all sports.

 

So we played in the world that was home
And our days filled up with fun and love,
And the germs they grew smaller and smaller
And the sun watched from up above.

 

Then one morning the sun woke up early,
She smiled and stretched her beams wide.
The world had been fully spring cleaned,
It was time to go back outside!

 

We opened our doors oh so slowly
And breathed in the clean and fresh air.
We promised that forever and always
Of this beautiful world we’d take care!

The Time we Spring Cleaned the World.

This was my first take - can you do better? I'm sure you can!

Weekend task!

 

Design a workout!

 

Write down 10 different exercises (write down the name of the moves)

Then, write down how long you want to spend on each exercise including the rests so that your exercises add up to approximately 20 minutes.

If you want, take a picture of it with your first name, age and where you're from and get an adult to add it to the internet with #PEWithJoe to be in with a chance to have Joe Wicks do your workout next week!
