We have been doing loads of learning around the Olympics. 
We watched this video, made for the last Olympic Games, which were in Rio 2016.

We were looking at how we need to look for messages in videos, even when there are no words. We need to pull information out of the text (video).

In this video, we are introduced to a range of sports which are in the Olympics. We see the mascots travelling trough the rainforest...
There are musicians playing traditional South American music too.

We decided that the video is giving us a sneak peak or glimpse into Brazilian culture and what we could expect to see at the Olympics. It might be designed to hook us in to wanting to watch it.

We are looking for the Winter Games episodes...
