      Dear Erryn,
      You don’t need to apologise! I agree, it is funny that in the ancient Olympics that they didn’t wear any clothes! I just learnt that as well! I suppose it was because their clothes back then were more like long dresses. They didn’t have Nike, Addidas or Lululemon comfortable, lightweight sportswear like we have now!

    Dear Miss Murphy,
    I learnt that in the old Olympics you could only go there if you were not a woman,you could speak Greek and you could not be a slave.
    Also the Olympics started at 170 BC in Athens and was named after Mount Olympus. It was funny because they were naked .

    Why did Greece made the olympic game?

  23. August 25th, 2016 at 9:45 am      Reply °•♡Kimmy the Kat♡•° Says:

    Dear Edward,
    Great question it’s because people of Greece thought the Olympic gods lived at Mount Olympus so then they did the Olympics on top of there P.S I’m happy to help you:3 🙂

      Dear Kimmy and Edward,
      I love the conversation you are having about the Olympics. This is one of the main reason to have a class blog so that you can post questions and respond to others in our class because we can all learn from each other. Absolutely fabulous! Please see me about this AWESOMENESS at school on Monday!
      Miss Murphy 🙂
