Wenlock and Mandeville are the Olympic mascots for the 2012 London Olympics and this website promotes these character through fun activities. This is a great website for students to go onto and have some fun if they have completed their more serious work. The activities range from making your own mascot, watching films on the mascots, playing games (some which use your webcam to operate the game), or find out more about the different sports in the Olympics. My students tried this site out the other day and gave it the thumbs up, so well worth a look.Pin It
