May 2016

If you’re not already, it’s time to get excited about the 2016 Olympics, which take place in Rio between 5th and 21st August. We will be holding our own version of the Olympic Games here on the last day of term at our annual Sainsbury’s School Games day, when House teams will be representing countries from all over the world. So, now is a good time to find out some information about the Olympics…….

First choose your challenge (Challenge 1, 2 or 3).
Next do your research.
Then hand in your home learning challenge by   Friday  24th June  2016.


Finally present your learning for our home learning exhibition.

Remember, you can present your learning in any way you like – poster, sculpture, painting, rap, song, piece of music, video, letter, argument, PowerPoint, play script, model, blog, advert - it’s up to you!

*Challenge 1:Can you research and describe an aspect of the Olympic Games? e.g. The history of the Olympics / or the location of this year’s Games / or one or more of the Olympic sports / or a famous Olympian etc.
**Challenge 2:Can you compare and contrast one or more aspects of the Olympic Games? e.g. Olympics old and modern / or countries that have held the Olympics / or Olympics sports wear through the ages etc.
***Challenge 3: Putting in the Olympics costs a huge amount of money. Can you evaluate the Olympics, considering what the Olympics means to different countries and asking the question, ‘Does the Olympic Games represent value for money?’
