Olympic fun

This week in Year 1 we have been thinking about the 2012 Olympic games in London. Children have been watching youtube video clips of the Ancient Olympics and compared those with the modern day style olympics.

Children have been searching for missing medals using metal detectors, making posters to advertise the London Olympics, making olympic flames, making Miss Clare an exercise program to help her get fit and learning about how swimming has changed over time.

We were very lucky to have a visit from Patana's very own swim coach Cindy, who came along to our Year 1 assembly today. Coach Cindy spent some time coaching the Fijian Olympic swim team and escorting the team  to the Olympic games in Athens.

The children were keen to ask lots of questions such as:

How often do the athletes train?

What kinds of food did they eat?

What types of training did they do?

One thing that I learnt today was that Olympic swimmers spend around 30 minutes putting their swimming suits on as they are SO tight! At the end of the race they have to be cut out of their swim suits! 

Thank you to Coach Cindy for coming to talk with us and sharing your knowledge!
