On Friday we had an assembly from Mrs Baldwin who visited Greece during the Easter holidays. She went to Olympia (the site of the Ancient Olympic Games) while she was there. During the assembly she showed us her photos of Olympia and taught us about how the Ancient Greeks used the different spaces and buildings.
We saw pictures of the torch lighting ceremony. Did you know that the torch is lit using rays from the sun? Then runners take it in turns to carry the torch on a journey around Greece before it goes on a plane all the way to Land's End, UK and eventually to London.
Back in class we looked at a short video telling the story of the 2012 Olympic Mascots. The story was made up by one of Miss Ash's favourite authors, Michael Morpurgo.
