Olympic Torch Relay

Months before each olympic game a female performer acts as a Priestess and ignites the first relay runners torch who would carry the flame to the host cities stadium.

The torch is brought into the stadium during the opening ceremony. The torch is passed on until it gets to the last person who will light the cauldron and then the games will officially begin.

Olympic Symbols

This term our inquiry topic is the Olympic Games. We will be taking a close look at the London games and also uncovering some of the amazing stories of the Olympics, both past and present.
The coloured version of the ring’s forms the Olympic flag. The colors for the Olympic Flag colours are blue, yellow, black, green and red covering over a white field. These colors were chosen because at less every country had one. They were first raised in 1920. 

The Rings formed inhabited continents such as Europe, Africa, Asia, America and Australasia. These ARE NOT countries they are inhabited continents. The colours of the rings are the colours for each country. The Olympic games is about bringing each country coming together and playing sport like high jump, long jump, basketball, diving and a few other things.

Art In Movement

On Monday we did Art in Movement.  

It was a bit hard moving as a team because of all the yelling and not listening at the leaders. When we all finished finding the pictures we went to the hall and
practised our moves the pictures were fencing, boxing, weight lifting, taekwondo and diving.
