YOUNGSTERS have been getting into the Olympic spirit by learning how the Games began.

Artefact Theatre Group visited children at Ferney Lee School to perform a fun and fact-filled performance called “The Olympian”.

The whole school became involved in the journey of Canthas of Sparta to the city of Athens in Greece, where he took part in the Olympic Games.

Anne Dobson, from the school, said: “The performance taught the children to believe in themselves, eat healthily and, of course, exercise.”

It was the first of many Olympic themed activities which are being held at the school throughout the term as the London 2012 Games approach.

l IS your school planning some special activities to link in with the Olympics?
