The Olympics began over two and a half thousand years ago in ancient Greece. In those days Greece was made up of several different states including Athens, Sparta and Corinth and they often at war with each other ,But when the games were on the held truce. This great event was held at a place called Olympia and this is why the games are called the Olympics. They were held once every four years in honor of Zeus lord of all the gods. Eventually the ancient Olympics were abolished by the roman emperor Theodosius the first, who was a Christian and didn’t like the games because they were dedicated to a pagan god. But the Olympic were always remembered as a symbol of human achievement and peace.

First thing on Thursday morning something amazing happened team pavilion went on a trip to Te Tuhi art cent . We got there on a bus and Mr Moran was singing. Once we got to Te Tuhi we met our tour guide Jeremy. We listened carefully to Jeremy and found out what we were going to do.
With a slight bit of excitement we followed Jeremy into the workshop . At the workshop we made our dream house out of shapes. My artwork was half a hexagon and another between two squares. Jeremy told us that we could put detail in our dream houses and take to class and finish it off When we finished our dream houses Jeremy told us some ground rules, Jeremy Said “ not to shout loudly in the gallery”.
Once we got out of the art workshop we went and looked at an activity the activity was that you had to feel you face and paint blindfolded. After that activity we went and watched a video the video wasn’t really scary but my class thought it was.The second video was about the olden days and how metal was burnt it wasn’t that interesting. When the videos ended we came out and Jeremy told us about a trail that had smoke coming out. He said the person who saw the trailer was making a video when he saw the trailer , he also said that the when the person was making the video the person wore a star wars costume because it was his favorite show .Then we ate and went on the bus to get back to class. When we were at class I felt exhausted and happy at the same time.
