Today an Olympic volleyball athlete called Jennifer came in to tell us about her time as an Olympic athlete at the 2012 Olympics. She told us about the people she met when she was there and the new sports she tried. She also told us about the colossal Russian athlete who could jump 3.10 meters! We tried to role play the height by Ella standing on a table and that still wasn’t high enough!!
She talked us through her accommodation and how it was decorated with British flags and Olympic duvets. Jennifer told us that she trained hard and then she had to take an ice bath; we role played this by Joe and Josh dipping their feet in water and ice. She showed us her spectacular volleyball that she used in the 2012 Olympic Games and taught us a game she used in training…however we used balloons!
