shapes, until you end up with four squares like this. And two oblongs.
You guys are going to start decorating. All will become apparent
later. And the dotted lines, you need to fold them. Keep folding, all
the way, concertina in the card. Next, take the other oblong like
this, and put glue in the middle, and stick it to the middle. You want
the gloopy Mac -- do you want to the glue? And you put the oblong in the
middle of the square. Next, you need to take a piece of card, and fold it
in half. And stick the waterfall section to the front. So put a bit
of glue there, and a little bit of glue there, and stick that down. If
you have done that right, the edges will be stuck down but the pieces in
the middle, you should be able to fold them through. So it goes up and
down. OK, how are your squares going? Is going all right? Know when
you decorate your squares, decorate from the bottom up. So won my first

because we are celebrating 100 years of Bollywood films. We have some
guys here from the Punjab Academy to show us some moves. Before we try
some moves ourselves, they resort you need to know about Bollywood and
45 seconds. Bollywood is the place to be with blockbusters -- for
to be with blockbusters -- for blockbusters with the beat. 900
films were produced in 2012. The film are -- the films are in
Hinglish, a mixture of Hindi and English. This compares with just 400
films in Hollywood. Part-timers! The UK sells up to 1.6 billion cinema
tickets for Bollywood films every year, tiny compared to the 3 billion
sold in India. Ollie would films cover everything from action, drama,
love and laughs. What makes them different from your average
Hollywood movie is that they usually include several song and dance
routines of at least five minutes. And everyone loves a Bollywood
movie. I'd defy anybody to watch that and not join in. As you can
see, dancing is a massive part of the Bollywood movies, so Davinder is
here to save me from this madness. Let's talk about the Punjab Academy.
it is a creative arts service and creative Academy. We do DJ in,
different types of drumming, and bhangra dancing. Do you mind if we
dance how much has angry changed in 100 years? Lee Mack it has changed
dramatically, from the traditional days where it was classical, and it
used to be very feminine, but now we have lots of influences, belly
dancing, tango, right through to bhangra dancing. But people talk
about screwing the lightbulbs. I've heard it was to do with farming.
Think the lightbulbs came from when our parents came to the UK, screwing
lightbulbs. Where did it start?the land of Punjab, the farmlands. All
the activities to place on the farmlands, we converted that into
dance, celebrations. We have to join in. I can to help it!Come on in
anti-just some moves. What are we going start with? first and
foremost, bhangra, but you could call this screwing in the lightbulb.
Join in at home. It is more fun on your feet! I have so many friends
who Are watching this and they are use. Bottom left, bottom right. Top
left, top right. Got that? Yes. Think so. Two, three, four. I like
this! That is not easy.This is brilliant. You make it look
effortless! Thank you so much. I could do this all day. Thankfully,
you don't have to watch us doing much more. These guy also put on a
performance for us later on. I can't wait for that. It is time for you to
sit back. We have had the Diamond Jubilee, the Royal Wedding, but on
Tuesday the Queen marked another milestone. She celebrated 60 years
on the throne. We sent three Royal reporters to get the lowdown on the
is Callum. We are about to grab our seats for one of the biggest Royal
occasions of the year. We have had an exclusive invite to Westminster
Abbey. We are going to be finding out more about what goes into the
Coronation of a British monarch. a moment, she will enter the Abbey
love food. I'm finding out more about a special coronation dish.
Last year, CBBC helped me make over my local community centre. I am here
to discover how the Royal Throne has been restored. I love singing. So
I'm checking out what sort of music is played. A Coronation takes place
in this massive Abbey. Their subjects, their country, and the
Commonwealth... Music plays a huge part in the ceremony. I'm meeting
the man in charge of music, James O'Donnell. James directs the choir.
They sing at special occasions like a Coronation. James, why is music so
important in a Coronation? The music expresses the sense of occasion, and
the sense of history in a way that words alone can't do. Which song is
the most famous? The Coronation music that's probably the most
famous is This piece. Do you reckon I could have a go at singing?
would be fine, yeah. This is I Was Glad which was sung at the opening
of the Coronation. How about doing that on your own?
# Vivat... # That was excellent. Thank you.Every
party needs good food. I'm at a world famous school where Mary Berry
trained and the current Bake Off winner is back at school. This is a
place where a special recipe was created. It was just for the Queen's
Coronation. Saffron is meeting the culinary food director and he's
cooked for the Queen! What is the original recipe of coronation
chicken? It was made up of chicken, apricot puree, curried spices and
mayonnaise. Why don't we make it? Let's get on with it. We are
poaching a chicken. This recipe was about 60 years ago. Was it unusual
to have curry powder or curry flavouring then? Very much so. Which
is why the Spices used are relatively mild, so it is not too
strong. This was ahead of its time. Today you might eat this dish in
sandwiches or on a jacket potato. Originally, it was created for a
banquet for special guests of the Coronation. Has the recipe changed
nowadays? Absolutely. Now you will see it with raisins, apple. This is
the authentic, this is the original. Once cooked, we blend the curry
sauce with the mayonnaise and add the chicken. Leaving In the fridge
for an hour to chill. Finally, we plate it up. Coronation chicken as
it was done in 1953. I get to try it! That chicken is really lovely.
Where the sauce has marinated with it. We have a challenge here. Why
can't we update it? Why not? While Saffron is rustling up a new take on
an old dish, Aleem is finding more about the Coronation Chair. 26 kings
and Queens have been crowned. He is meeting a restorer. It is a pretty
old throne. Why did it need restoring? It Is a special throne.
It was made in 1300. Why is this throne so important? There is
something mystic about it. It is a powerful chair. That moment when
they become the King or the Queen, or the monarch of England, that
happens in this chair. What is all this writing? It is graffiti. It is
very old. Most of it was done in the 18th Century. Some of it was done by
schoolboys. Some of it was done by visitors. You know what? I have my
crown. Can I be King for a Day? sit on the throne? I don't think so.
I don't think the Queen would allow that. Nearly? Nice try! That seat is
reserved for royalty. Back in the kitchen, Saffron and Alan are
creating a new coronation chicken recipe. We are poaching chicken in
heat-safe clingfilm with lime leaves and spices and creating a lighter
sauce. That one tastes so nice. The chicken is really flavoursome. The
sauce has a really nice tang. Saffron has come back to the Abbey
so we can give our verdict on her dishes. Quite nice, this. I like the
sauce. Has a great texture. Want to try the next one? Yes. This one
tastes more modern. It looks as if it's been produced in one big
machine. Do you agree? It is nice. prefer the other one. It had more
texture. It tasted better. I liked the older one. It is more British. I
felt more at home eating it. The food was great. Thank you very much.
Aleem, I'm sorry you didn't get on the seat? Not really.I have brought
some stuff to get into the mood. Here is a seat. Right. You hold
that. You put this on. OK. We will have front row seats for the next
Coronation. At least we have some food to keep us going! It could be a
long time before the next one! least we are ready. Come on!
Congratulations on a brilliant film. E-mails - who would you invite to a
party and why? Oliver, I would invite my grand parents and have a
custard pie party. Sarah says I would throw a chocolate party
because chocolate is awesome. would have a In space and I would
have -- I would have a party in space and I would invite Paloma
Faith. Before we go any further, 400 million of you would choose One
Direction to be at your party. Vicky would go on Karaoke with Jessie J.

Walliams. Thank you for getting in touch. The sun doesn't have to be
