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.
