1 words 2 minute Winter olympics


This year the Pyeongchang winter olympic games have begun many countries have come too compete in the winter Olympics each sport is played on ice & snow.

Many of the sports that are played use different equipment they also show respect to there team & country but the tournament is not easy,not every athlete wins the games.

Athletes also compete in different events like different kinds of sports it takes a lot too practice for these games.

Some teams have sports trials that they have too practice in each day & each week until the finals come.
Pyeongchang winter olympic games were held for 17 days,It started on the 9th of February & ended on the 25th of February.
Today we used the ‘2 words 1 minute’ challenge to write a description about the Winter Olympics. After talking in pairs about the things we knew about the winter Olympics we created a list of words (vocabulary) that would help us write our description. We chose the words ‘equipment’ and ‘respect’ to help us think about what we were going to write.

We talked about ideas with a partner, then we had 1 minute to put those ideas into sentences. We had to try our best to use all the words on our vocab list. After the minute was up we had 2 minutes to reread what we had written and make changes if anything didn’t make sense, or if we had words and punctuation in the wrong place. When we finished checking we had 2 more minutes to carry on writing our descriptions.

I need to remember to Today I made sure that I used powerful words to make my paragraphs interesting.
