Home Learning 23.5.12

Published Wednesday, May 23, 2012.
Last updated: Wednesday, May 23, 2012

For the last three weeks of term we will be learning about the Olympics, ready for the summer games which take place in London during July and August.


What do you think of the logo? How much do you think the organisers of the Olympics games paid the designers?

Talk to your parents about their favourite Olympic memory. Mine is Linford Christie winning the men’s 100 metres in Barcelona in 1992. Make some notes on the Olympic memory of your parents ready to share with the class.


Research an Olympic hero. You might well want to choose one from your own country, but you do not have to. Write a 300 word biography about them. This could be handwritten or done on the computer. Include some pictures of the hero in action. Alternativley you could present what you have learnt as a non-chronological report in the form of a poster or a leaflet.

What makes a hero? Is it someone who wins Olympic gold? Or is it someone who shows amazing determination or sportsmanship?

This home learning will be for the next three weeks (just Wednesdays). Please bring in your finished pieces on Friday 8th of June ready to share with class.

Please post what you have found out about the Olympics and its heros here.

As an optional extension research the athletes that your own country is sending to the games. What are their medal chances?
