The New Olympic Theme!
It’s a new term which means new theme and this terms theme is “GO FOR GOLD!!!” (The Olympic Games) Perfect timing because this term we're going to have the cross country race and athletics day. No doubt we’re going to have lots of sport going on in the term!!!
Today at immersion assembly my favourite team performance was team three. I liked their combination of movies and acting. The teachers pretended to be olympians from the nineteens Olympic Games!
I learned a couple of facts about the Olympic Games and some of the olympians too. Did you know that in 1952 a New Zealand olympian Yvette Williams won a gold medal for long jump and In 1954 at Gisborne she set a new world record with a jump of 6.29m! She held the record for 18 months (1954 and 1955) Awesome right!!!
Hope you enjoyed my story. In the Olympic Games I'm going to be cheering "Go New Zealand!!!"
