Road to Rio!
A super day had by all to commemorate the Olympics to be held in Rio this summer. Our day started with an opening ceremony to introduce each of the six chosen countries for Year 1 and 2 pupils. The whole school listened to National anthems for Australia, Mexico, Spain, Russia, USA and Greece whilst their flags were displayed. We were then told some interesting facts about each country. Can you remember any of them for your country?
Throughout the day each class in Year 1 and 2 were taught a creative dance to represent each of their class focus countries. Pupils have loved learning about Rio and their focus country and learnt about culture, food, climate, landmarks, animals alongside their dancing and many, many more aspects.
The day ended with our Olympic closing ceremony whereby each class showcased their dance to the whole school.
