B Block Olympics ...

Friday was super-fun in Super-Duper B5, or should we say 'Seussralia'  We proudly dressed in white, our country's colour, and put on the costumes we had made out of recycled materials (headbands, wristbands and tops) and represented our class/country at the B Block Olympics.  
Heading into the Opening Ceremony, flags waving...

Because it was raining, we had to improvise with our parade and at hui each class/country stood up and showed off their costumes and flags.  Each country's King and Queen introduced their country, their mascot and talked a little about how they'd made their costumes. 
Queen Megan, King Alexis and Big Theodore were proud to introduce our country...
Our colourful audience, representing Leopardotopia (B1, wearing yellow);
Kakariki (B2, wearing green); Petelandia (B3, wearing red); Beekeychamps (B4, wearing blue);
Seussralia (B5, wearing white) and Toyland (B6, wearing black)...

To end our opening ceremony, we passed the Olympic Torch we had so lovingly made earlier in the term. Every student in B Block made a flame and 'lit' the torch and it has been proudly displayed in our corridor throughout.
Carefully passing the torch to one
another during our Olympic 'relay'...

After our opening ceremony we all went back to our classes and had fun putting together some 'Olympic' activities to try.

We warmed up with some Cosmic Kids yoga...

Everyone who participated in our special B Block Olympics event was presented with a participation certificate, and there were some special awards given out for sportsmanship too! 



Our day ended with an Olympics themed disco...
