This week we have been having a great focus on our writing.  We have been assigned to write another blog post, so I’m choosing to write about facts about London and the five Olympic rings.

What do the Olympic Rings stand for? Well, on Tuesday, Room 18 had about 30 minutes to research and explore the internet. I found amazing facts about the rings.  The 5 Olympic rings stand for each of the 5 continents involved in the Olympic games such as South and North America, Oceania, Asia, Africa and lastly Europe.

London, is located in England.  There are many things to see in London such as The Big Ben, the Tower Bridge, The London Eye and many more. The one that appealed to me the most was Big Ben. Big Ben is the nickname for the great bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster. The clock tower holds the largest four-faced chiming clock in the world and is the third-tallest free-standing clock tower. It celebrated its 150th anniversary on 31 May 2009.

I am enjoying learning about the Olympics, especially about the great city of London. I truly hope to visit some day.

Room 18 are all Writing about different things like perhaps the Olympics 2012.  I chose to write about the Olympics because it’s the main event going on this year.

Well, as you all kn0w it’s a new term and we have a new topic.  This term we have been assigned to achieve one goal for the London Olympics 2012 and I have chosen to become a faster runner and my friends are joining in to.

This term we have a new topic and our topic is based on the London Olympics 2012.  Our topic I think is going to be really cool because our topic can contain us doing sports and challenges.

The Olympic games is a huge international event during winter and summer, thousands of athletes participate in a variety of sports.  The Olympics are considered to be the most foremost sports competition and more than 20 nations participate in this event.

My favourite Olympics sports event is properly running and high jump I don't have a reason why I like those chosen sports.  Running is not my thing I do enjoy running but not long distances.
