Paris 2024

We were getting excited about the 2024 Paris Olympics in assemblies this week.

Did you know…Olympics officials have unveiled the gold, silver and bronze medals that will be awarded at this summer’s Olympic games in Paris, and each one contains a unique souvenir: a fragment of scrap iron from the Eiffel Tower!

The Paris 2024 mascots have been revealed! They are based on the red caps worn during the French Revolution and represent freedom. These cute characters hope to encourage people to be inspired by the Olympics and get active themselves!

We watched a video about Paralympian athlete, Beth Munro. She met some children to inspire them to try different sports. Beth competed in netball and javelin before winning her silver Taekwondo medal. We discussed which sports we are excited to watch during the Olympics and which ones we love to take part in, or would like to try.
