We hope the children all enjoyed being part of the Abingdon Olympics. It was lovely to see the subjects of History and Geography actively used to find out about each country that every class was allocated. Here are just a few quotes from children, discussing their learning:
‘We found out that our flag (Union flag) is on lots of flags from different countries.’ –Year One. Fiji.
‘ We found out that Algeria was invaded by France, so we re-enacted the invasion in school.’- Year Two- France.
‘ Antigua is a rich country. They use the East Caribbean dollar. They speak English.’ – Year Three. Antigua & Barbuda.
‘ We located China on a map. It’s below Russia, in the Pacific Ocean.’ – Year Four. China.
