What an amazing celebration – the opening of the Olympic Games. We all learnt so much about Britain. We loved the journey through time. The music was really cool. Some of our very favourite parts were Mr Bean playing and the “Queen” parachuting in. We have been watching the Olympics a lot this weekend.
Mason has started a wonderful record of Olympic results on a page in our wiki! Well done Mason.
New Zealand has made a fantastic start. Glen Snyders set a New Zealand record in the swimming – 100 metre breaststroke.
Hamish Bond and Eric Murray set a world record time in the heats of rowing.
We need to really think about the messages in the Olympic Games… everyone is gathered in peace to compete. It was very exciting to see all the teams parade in. How exciting to see this is the first Olympics with a female competitor from every country.
It was so special to see the lighting of the Olympic flame. It is so symbolic to see a copper petal from each country all burning together.
There were so many wonderful moments in the opening ceremony. What was your favourite?
