In August 2016 in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro, 206 countries competed in the Summer Olympics. This was a hugely watched world-wide event. It was a great opportunity for children to research different countries to mark this special event. ‚Äč


Children at Longfield took part in this exciting event by supporting and researching countries that were participating. The children were given a country to support and learn facts about. At the beginning of the Autumn term children brought their research projects into school to share and display in the school to celebrate the Olympics.


Here are some pictures showcasing the fantastic work that was produced by children from year 1 to year 6!
