Amelia If I was an Olympic athlete Rio 2016


Walt: use a plan when writing.
The time has come I have been training for 4 nervous ruff and tuff years . Have you trained your hardest? I am determined to win a gold medal with pride. Here I am standing ready to compete in the Hurdles representing NZ after all my hard work for the 2016 Rio Olympics!

The sport that I will be competing in the 2016 Rio Olympics is the famous Hurdles. Hurdles is the sport that I want to compete in the 2016 Rio Olympics, and the reason why I am competing in this interesting event is because Hurdles is a game I like to play at home with my family members. In the Olympics hurdles is an running competition but without running in circles, and well you run you have to jump over high hurdles to make it to the finish line (Hurdles are kind of like fences). I have trained a lot for this famous sport and now it's going to pay off!

This year I will be representing New Zealand in the Rio Olympics. The thing that makes me want to represent New Zealand my home country is because I was born and raised here, but because I chose this is because I know a lot of thing about my home country and that most of my family members are here. I also belong to a different country but I kind of know alot about it instead I will be representing New Zealand for most of my family members.

I think if I was competing in the 2016 Rio Olympics it would be like “OH MY GOSH I’m here right now”. But if I was actually competing in the  2016 Rio Olympics I would be GOBSMACKED, PROUD, JAW DROPPING and nervous. What about you? What would it be like if you were at the Olympics? if you were going to actually compete in this big event. I would be proud If I was actually competing in the big event it would be AMAZING!

Going to the the Olympics would be very exciting but I can’t afford that much money because it is too expensive! What are your thoughts for this BIG challenging event? My thoughts are is that the Olympics is that it is very cool you get to see winners and supportive people so these are my thoughts.

Task Description: "Yay! back to school day and ready to work". Here is my first blogpost for Term 3. Since the Olympics in Rio (Brazil) we have an activity about if I was an olympic athlete. I had to plan of what the structer of my story was. Then I put my 5 paragrahs and here it is complete. What do you think if you were an olympic athlete?

The Ceremony has just started and is held near the sea’s of Rio (Not Actually). I can hear cheerful crowds bouncing up and down through my ears. All the Olympic athletes are celebrating around with there amazing uniform all of a sudden… a BIG old crowd yells out “TSUNAMI!” . Swoosh Swoosh water starts destroying everybody. I just stood there with not knowing what to do and shocked. The tsunami gets worser I hear screams through my ear the PRJS ( Police of Rio de Janeiro state) starts evacuating everybody. Just then one of the PRJS grabbed me by the jacket. Swoosh all the water splashes on everybody and the sea goes back to normal. “What a devastating moment", someone yells.       

 

Winter Learning journey D6 Opening Ceremonies A2



If I was going to host the New Zealand Olympics in 2024, and I was invited
to be on the committee that decides who is invited to participate in the opening ceremonies I would be GOBSMACKED and filled with JOY!. I totally think that Lorde should be the BEST person to participate in the opening ceremony. Lorde is the best choice to participate in the opening ceremony because she is known as her world-wide music career.

IALT: Write about what you think about women at the ancient Olympic games women weren't allowed to be part of it.




During the ancient Olympic games one of the rules were like men were only allowed to join the games. Accept women were not allowed to play the games. In fact women were forbidden from watching the games.

In my opinion I think this rule is not fair for women I highly recommend women to have the same amount of opportunity as men because it’s not really fair for women to not play. Women should watch the games because some loved ones might be competing so they should allow women to encourage their loved ones to compete.       

Description: This is a bonus activity about the ancient Olympic games. Did you that no women not a single women was allowed to be part of the Olympic or watch the Olympic. What do you think about this rule Good are Bad.

Walt: Write about the first ever ancient Olympic games


Let’s imagine if I was alive 2792 years ago, and I was invited to compete in the first ever ancient Olympic games. Then I would have to compete out of these 6 events: Running, Wrestling, Boxing, Pankration, Horse riding and Pentathlon. Out of these 6 choices I would pick Running. Running is not really a favorite sport of mine but the reason why I would pick running is because I’m really energetic to run around big areas and is sometimes FUN!



Description: This is my Winter Learning Journey task about the first ever ancient Olympic games. This task was made by and spectacular lady for blogging in the holidays.
