With the upcoming Olympics and Paralympics in Paris this Summer. Countess Gytha wanted to challenge themselves and the children in their partner schools to create a School Olympic Mascot. This was a great classroom activity for children, giving them a chance to be part of a creative & cultural experience. This activity was completed during PSHCE lessons. Designs were to be creative, use bright colours and be based on our sporting values. Working in small groups the children also researched previous Olympic mascots and made their collaborative own presentation to send to our French schools.
