Olympic Opening Ceremony hits Blue Coat

Last Friday, the hall filled with Olympic teams representing nations from each continent. Why? It was Blue Coat's very own Olympic Opening Ceremony!

Each class presented a short cultural display from their country to give us all a flavour of the participant nations in the Blue Coat Olympics. We had hat dancing to hakas; sports displays to oriental dragons! The atmosphere was electric and it was amazing to see such variety and creativity in how each country had chosen to represent itself before its competitors.

Next, the children will learn more about the Olympics through the International Primary Curriculum. Teachers have also planned an Olympic events day where children will compete for their countries against their fellow nations in an attempt to climb the medals table and reign champions of this year's Blue Coat Olympics (this is separate to Sports Day).
