Wow, in another few days the Olympic Games in Rio will get underway. It will be an exciting time as we see how we compare to other individual athletes and teams in the World.
The following article is an update of our athletes arrival in Rio, the latest successful athletes to make the team, and the preparation underway as athletes prepare themselves for the competitions.
Your task is to read the campaign news and then select one of the events to write a brief report on to share. Please remember to put the work into a google doc, name and share it with your whanau teacher, or your literacy teacher. We do not mind we just want to see our great motivated learners working independently on self chosen tasks.
