Pupils show flare!
CHILDREN at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary in Kingswood might have missed out on their summer sports day but they got the opportunity to get back in track last month.
All classes took part in The Olympic Host City Project. Children completed many tasks including learning about opening ceremonies and their history, using maths to budget for the development of the athletes' village, making Olympic torches in DT, designing athletic kit from sustainable materials, and in forest school sessions, collecting natural items from the school grounds to create their own Olympic Stadiums.
As part of the project, each class had to create a new country and present their pitch as a bid to host the coming OLOL Olympics. They composed and performed their own National Anthem and planned their own opening ceremonies.
The project was judged by the Olympic Committee - headteacher Miss McLoughlin, and assessment manager Matt Poulson - and the winning class Year 4 got to preside over the Opening Ceremony for a week of sporting events concluding with a trophy presentation and a Closing Ceremony.
