The forbidden city is located in the centre of
Beijing. It is rectangular shaped and covers 74
hectares. The forbidden city is surrounded by a 6
metre deep moat and a 10 metre high wall. Since
yellow is the symbol of the royal family the
roofs are built with yellow glazed tiles.
History of the Olympics
The Closing Ceremony
In Beijing on the 22.08.08 the Olympics finished
for another four years. The Olympics were amazing
and the closing ceremony was great with all its
beautiful fireworks!!! It was being watched by
thousands in the audients and by millions more on
the TV. The torch was put out by an extinguisher
and was carried away to London for the next
Olympic games.
History Of The Olympics
The symbol of the Olympic Games is composed of
five interlocking rings, coloured blue, yellow,
black, green, and red on a white background. The
five Olympic rings represent the five continents
and were designed in 1913. They were designed by
Baron Pierre De Coubertin. The reason that the
rings are linked is because the five continents
are being brought together to the Olympics!
History Of The Olympics
The Olympics were created in Greece to help the
soldiers stay strong and in shape while not at
war with events such as shot-put. People were
trained as human cannons .Pole-vault and high
jump helped people get over large walls

High Jump
The high jump technique has changed more than any
other track or field event since the 1896 Athens
games. Jumpers have jumped over feet first and
head first belly down. Competers now enjoy
jumping head first belly up. High jumpers must
remain calm as later rounds put on pressure.
Netball is a non-contact sport similar to
basketball. Netball was created when a gym
teacher at a high school misunderstood the rules
of basketball. There are seven players in a
netball team and seven different positions such
as, centre, goal shoot, goal keep, wing attack,
wing defence, goal attack, and goal defence.
Netball positions
Originally made of stone, later discuses were
made of bronze, iron, or lead. The ancient discus
looked a lot like the ones used today. It weighed
between 1.3 and 6.6 kilograms and was anywhere
from 17 to 32 centimetres in diameter. Boys threw
a different, smaller discus than the men. Though
it was not used as a weapon in war, the discus
has a reputation for being an instrument of
accidental death in mythology.
