Children's Day in India

In India, Children's Day is celebrated on 14th November which is the birthday of the country's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.

Jawaharlal Nehru was called Chacha Nehru (Uncle Nehru) or Chachaji (Uncle) by the kids and always emphasised the importance of love and affection towards children as he saw them as the bright future of India.

Schools, offices and organisations all get involved, and schools especially hold cultural performance run by the children themselves. Why not do something special with your children this weekend - take them on a fun day out, or if its raining why not all put on a performance yourselves!

Children in Need 2013 - BBC1, 7.30pm

Presented by Terry Wogan and Tess Daly, this year's Children in Need is set to be a big one! With a whole evening of fundraising fun and a massive line up of stars, tune in to the fun to support disadvantaged children across the UK. 

Kicking off with a medley of songs from the West End cast of Matilda, the show will also feature JLS performing some of their greatest hits, and to top it all off there will be a real treat for Doctor Who fans with an exclusive clip from the long-awaited 50th anniversary episode! One Direction will also be making an appearance, along with Gary Barlow who will be introducing a nationwide choir of 1,500 children united in song.

One more sneak peak though - Ellie Goulding will be performing the official Children in Need single, How Long Will I Love You! 

 

Live International Football England v Chile - ITV, 7.30pm (Kick Off 8.00pm) 

After finishing 3rd in the South American qualifiers, Chile progressed to the finals in Brazil but ended up losing half of their fixtures in the process - 50/50, so how will their form be on the night?

Either way Roy Hodgson will be expecting his "in form" side to continue where they left off against Montenegro and Poland.

Bring it on.
