Pupils go through their paces ahead of Olympics

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - School Report -

Pluck­ley Pri­mary School pupils held a Rio-themed Olympics day to cel­e­brate the up­com­ing games. Each class learned about a dif­fer­ent coun­try com­pet­ing in this year’s Olympic Games, which will be held in Brazil from Au­gust 5 to 12.

For their own open­ing cer­e­mony last Wed­nes­day, the pupils pa­raded with their coun­tries’ flags and heard about the medal tal­lies from the Lon­don 2012 games.

Over the day, each class learned a tra­di­tional dance from their coun­try, which they pre­sented to the school at the clos­ing cer­e­mony.
