The Olympic parade started but suddenly...

I was sitting amongst the noisy crowd but suddenly lightning struck the stadium and everyone quietened down.We sat in dead silents and waited for the horrible sound to end.Suddenly the lights went out. The stadium was pitch black and we could hear the shrieking of police sirens echoing through the big stadium. The Olympians were standing in fear waiting for something to happen.The lights beamed on and the lightning stopped. The stadium was full of police.The police searched every corner of the stadium until it was safe.It carried on like nothing happened.Everyone dance merrily and waved there proud flag.And the Olympics began again.

  1. Hi Jeremiah,

    Wow, what a great story! I was completely entertained by it, wondering what was going to happen next as I read through the entire tale. I think that you did a great job of capturing feelings of nervousness, fear, trepidation, uncertainty and then excitement and joy as the ceremony resumed and everyone was fine. Whew! I hope that the opening ceremonies in Rio aren't half as dramatic as your story!

    Will you watch the opening ceremonies for the Rio Olympics? I am definitely planning to watch them (if they are televised at a reasonable hour). I believe that the opening ceremonies will be held on Friday 5 August. That is coming up so quickly! I really can't wait for the Olympics to start. Are you excited about the games?

    I hope that you're having a nice week with your family and friends. Enjoy the break and have a great start to Term III. I will look forward to coming into Panmure Bridge to hand our certificates and prizes early in the term. I'll see you then!

    Cheers, Rachel :)
