GUESS WHAT! The olympics have started and I am really excited. The Olympics are held in London and there are 300 events in 26 sports at the 2012 Olympics. So far I have seen Woman's weight lifting, Men and Woman's swimming, Rowing, and Gymnastics. My favorite sport is Rowing because New Zealand Came first. They are an undefeated team and a lot of rowers that race against them have changed their events because the kiwi boys are too good!!
The opening ceremony was the best that I had ever seen in my life. I wonder what the next Olympics is going to be like?!

Today was the first day of school and I only wanted to go because I wanted to play on my netbook. When the bell rang I knew straight away that we were going to the hall for Immersion Assembly. I really like the first assembly of the term because some of the teachers dress up and they sometimes make movies.
The first item was given by Team 1. They made a video which was about Dick Quax and Yvonne Williams. They were both in the Olympics and both represented NZ. The cool thing was that Mrs George actually got to meet them. Yvonne competed in the long jump at the Olympics and Dick raced in the 5000 metres run. Dick got a silver medal, but Yvonne got a gold.
My favourite movie was Team 4’s because my teacher was in it and he wanted to hunt fish with his spear gun but the olympics offered him synchronised swimming instead. Miss Garden was going to swim for the Olympics and she said that she has been practicing in the bathtub. All the performances and movies were so cool to watch. I wonder what next term’s theme is going to be?
