It’s one of the most famous bike races in the world. We’re surprised that they did choose Yorkshire but they did and we’re all very excited about it. It is brilliant that this famous race will be passing through Keighley and hope that we’ll be able to see the riders in action.
The tour de France was first organised in 1903. I hope they have lots of water and drive safely also have a great time. We hope nobody cheats as we have been very shocked by the news of previous races being filled with drugs.
The exact route of the The 2014 Tour de France is shown in this video:

Swansea have just made it through to the final of the Capital One Cup with Bradford at Wembley. It stayed stalemate at the second leg but Swansea go through on aggregate 0-2. Some bizaare things happened in the Chelsea v Swansea game. Eden Hazard appeared to kick a ball boy when he appeared not to give the ball back.

But they have met in the dressing room and have both apologised about the incident.

We are going with seven staff so we will be very well looked after. We will have a long journey because it is going to take six hours to get to Dover.
Watch our video to find out more about our visit to Paris.
On Friday we will be doing maths club in Paris and it is going to be very fun. On Saturday we will visit Notre Dame Cathedral, and we are going to go on the Eiffel tower and that will be amazing.
We will make sure everyone will go up the Eiffel tower as well – and hope to do RadioOLV from their next week.
On Sunday we have all day in Disneyland Paris and I am going to go on the fast rides, which will be brilliant. We hope that the teachers aren’t too scared to go on the rides with us.
There has been poor weather recently and forecasts of lots of snow and ice over the next few days. Lots of parents have been phoning school to find out if we are open. Here are some easy ways to find out:
If the weather is bad enough to close school we will post something on the main school website. You can find this site here.
Mr Devlin posts updates on the school twitter account. You can see our news on twitter here.
If the school has to be closed before the start of the day there will be an announcement on Pulse Radio and Radio Leeds.
Education Bradford also keep an up to date list of closures. It is on their website here.
Please check these sites for information about the school in bad weather. Lots of people phoning school means it is difficult for important calls to be answered, and a lot of the time the phones can be engaged because of high numbers of calls.
We have been talking to a school in Lithuania. Here is the New Years message that we have sent them as a video.
These are the questions that we have asked them:
Happy new year Lithuania how was your Christmas?
What did you get? do you celebrate Christmas on the 25 of December?
How cold is it where you are?
Do you get lots of snow?
Did you enjoy the Christmas pudding and playing in the snow?
How many presents did you get? What was your favourite part of the holiday?
We hope you all enjoyed our riddles and spent a bit of time trying to work them out! Here are the answers.
A cowboy rides to town on Friday and 3 days later he leaves on Friday. How is that possible? His horse is called Friday.
A friend was telling me, ‘I have eight sons and each has one sister.’ In total, how many children does my friend have? Nine children – eight sons and one daughter all together.
The man who invented it doesn’t want it. The man who bought it doesn’t need it. The man who needs it doesn’t know it. What is it? A coffin.
There is a bag which have 21 blue balls and 23 red balls. You also have 22 red balls outside the bag.
Randomly remove two balls from the bag.
* If they are of different colours, put the blue one back in the bag.
* If they are the same colour, take them out and put a red marble back in the bag.
Repeat this until only one marble remains in the bag.
What is the colour of the one marble left in the bag ? Blue.
There are three boxes in a table. One of the box contains Gold and the other two are empty. A printed message contains in each box. One of the message is true and the other two are lies.
The first box says ‘The Gold is not here’.
The Second box says ‘The Gold is not here’.
The Third box says ‘The Gold is in the Second box’.
Which box has the Gold? The first box because if you assume that the first box is the only one telling the truth, then the third box must be telling the truth aswell. You can work out with this logic that the second box is telling the truth and so therefore, the first box is holding the gold.
