Winter learning journey

Activity 2: Let’s imagine that you were able to meet one of the following three athletes competing for New Zealand at the Rio Olympics:

Lauren Boyle: Lauren is a swimmer from Auckland. She typically competes in the 400m and 800m freestyle races and, in the 2012, finished in 4th place at the London Olympics (just one spot away from winning a medal)! This will be Lauren’s third trip to an Olympic Games. She is the most successful swimmer in New Zealand sporting history. To learn more about Lauren you can read her biography at:

I would choose to meet Andrea Kilday because his sport is Taekwondo.

Activity 1: New Zealand will be sending approximately 76 athletes to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in August to compete in the Summer Olympic Games. To learn more about these amazing athletes you can read their biographies on the New Zealand Olympic team website. Each athlete has their own page dedicated to them.

The athlete that I am talking about is Gayle Broughton,She played rugby,If she wasn't playing rugby she would be a tattooist. Voted Taranaki Women's Sevens Player of the Year 2015,this Hawera 20-year old is one to watch in Rio.

Winter learning jouney

Bonus: This year two sports are being reintroduced into the Olympic Games. They are golf and sevens rugby. Imagine that you worked for TVNZ and you were paid to travel to Rio de Janeiro to attend the Olympic Games and report on the golf and/or the rugby competitions. On your blog, write a poem that describes how you would feel about travelling to Rio. Would you be excited? Would you be scared? How would you feel?

If I would travel to Rio I will feel happy because I like travelling to other places.And I would be excited but I will be a little scared because I would be there alone with no one I know.But I would feel excited.

Winter learning journey

Activity 1: Visit the website for the 2016 Rio Olympics. Click on the name of the one of the sports that is listed on the main page. If possible, choose one that you have never heard of before and read about it. After reading about the sport, post a short description of it on your blog. The post must include:

  1. The name of the sport
  2. The aim of the sport
  3. Two rules for the sport

the name of the sport that I chose was rugby.Although the fifteen player version of the sport appeared at the Olympic game between 1900 and 1924.the aim of the sport is to always try to get a try and to always try to kick it in the goal post.And the two rules in rugby will be to never fight and never knock the ball on.
