Despite the wet weather we managed to have our Olympian day where we dressed up as an athlete. Try to guess our sport! We enjoyed a session of Jump Jam and then tried to beat Usian Bolts sprint time over 100 metres! Relays are fun but we had to be careful not to drop the baton!!

Olympic Flame • The Olympic Flame began during the ancient Olympic Games, over 2700 years ago in Greece. • The Flame is lit from the suns rays using a special mirror at the Temple of Hera in Olympia among the ancient ruins of the games. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/olympics/picturegalleries/9256880/London-2012-Olympic-torch-begins-its-journey-after-being-lit-in-Olympia-Greece.html#?frame=2215633 • After a short relay around Greece, the Flame is handed over to the new Host City at another ceremony in Athens. http://static.nme.com/images/gallery/2012MuseOlympicTorchPA210512.jpg • The Flame is then delivered to the Host Country, where it is transferred from one Torchbearer to another, spreading the message of peace, unity and friendship. It ends its journey as the last Torchbearer lights the cauldron at the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony in the Olympic Stadium, marking the official start of the Games. • This is a video clip of the lighting of the Olympic Flame at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona. It is lit with a flaming arrow. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSA9xUUXj6E • The Flame is extinguished on the final day of the Games, at the Closing Ceremony.

Jack Frost is here.
He makes my toes tingle.
I think it is sugar.
Jack Frost gets chased away in the morning.
I think the sun makes him melt.
It is like the place in Antarctica.
The wood was as cold as an ice berg and as slippery as ice melting.
I think he comes at night and leaves in the morning.
I think he comes from the cold.
When he leaves he left his foot prints behind.
