We think it is wonderful fun to use different themes for the events we hold in school. As the Olympics were held in London recently, we thought it would be a great idea to have an Olympic themed Sports Day. All of the girls in the school were mixed into teams with different country names. We made country flags and headbands using the country colours. An opening ceremony was held where everyone sang the Olympic Anthem and we raised an Olympic Flag. We lit an Olympic torch and the games began. Everyone took part in the many exciting events and the day finished with our Closing Ceremony where the winners were presented wth medals and their country anthems were played. It was a wonderful day and we learned so much about the Olympic Games while having lots of fun and exercise.
