Olympic Torch Visit

12 Jun

Today we had a visit from Jack Chambers one of the Olympic torch bearers. We all got a chance to hold the torch. It was awesome holding the torch, it was quite heavy. The torch has 8000 holes in it, it represents all the torch bearers who have carried the torch through the UK. Jack said it was epic getting to carry the Olympic torch and it will be something he will always keep in  his memory for ever and ever. The torch got passed around the hall and everybody in the school got to hold it. We were all astonished because it was the real Olympic torch! Everyone that runs with the torch gets their own torch so there are a lot of torches at the end. We got chocolate olympic medals from them it was GREAT!

    Wow! A fantastic post – We had a man called Steve coming into our school to show us his olympic torch aswell. Also i went to see the olympic torch realy like emila but I went with my friend Georgia in bolton town centre. It was very exciting, as this might be the last time the olympics are ever held in england again so it could go down in history! So when you are older you will be able to say i remember when i was (how ever old you are) I saw a olympic torch.
    Thank you for sharing you blog post wioth us .

    Wow such an amazing piece of writing you have done. We also had an Olympic torch runner whose name was Steve. He also told us that there are 8000 holes on the torch that represent all the torch bearers. We also learnt from him about the six values of the Olympics: Respect, determination, courage, exellence, friendship and equality.

    Wow, that must have been amazing to hold the oylimpic torch. I can see that you are very exited for the oylimpics. I’m exited too and I can’t wait till the oylimpics starts. We also had a visitor who came in with his torch and the torch looked amazing. Some people asked if the torch could grate cheese and that made the runner laugh.We got to feel the torch and it was amazing. The man also told us all the values of the oylimpics which were, courage, excellence, respect, frendship, determination and equality.

    This is so amazing we had a torch bearer come to our school too! In addition we got to touch the torch, it was EPIC! He did a little presentation in assembly it was so interesting to learn about it. He was nominated to be a torch bearer because he set up a football club just for girls. It was so facinating.

    Wow this is great. We had a torch bearer come into our school yesterday and we got to hold the torch as well. He tought us why the torch had three sides because it represents the 3 times. Also this is a amazing piece of writing because you have put a range of punctuation in. He was nominated because he set up a football club up just for girls and the girls did something back for him.
