Topic

Hello everyone!   

Over the next 6 weeks, things will be a little bit different on our class pages. We have more children in school from this week, so the learning in school will be the same as that at home.  We want everyone to have access to the same learning.  There are still maths and literacy activities for you to do this week (the literacy work includes both reading and writing) but there is also some topic work. Our Key stage 2 topic is called WHAT ON EARTH!  Each week we will be exploring a different country. There are plenty of fun activities for you to complete by following the activity mat.  Why not have a go at a bit of construction, cooking or sport! Don't forget to send lots of photographs to the staff emails.

01.06.2020- Topic- Week 6

Welcome back everyone! I hope you all had a lovely half term and are ready to carry on learning about the Olympic Games. There are 3 further activities that I would like you to complete below. The activities involve; a reading task about the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, a research task about Olympic Olive Leaf Crowns and an ordering activity involving the Olympic Events. 

 

Activity 1- Read through the Rio 2016 Olympics Reading sheet and answer the following questions into your books or onto the sheet. 

Activity 2- One of your creative activities was to make an olive leaf crown. This week, I would like you to conduct some research into what the olive crown means and why it was used in the Olympics. Your challenge is to find as many facts as possible and record them onto the attached sheet. 

Activity 3- Organise the Olympic Events into alphabetical order. Next week, I will be creating some further activities about some of the events you will order this week! 

18.05.20- Week 5

Welcome to Week 5 of out topic learning about The Olympic Games. This week, I have set you some different tasks including some research activity and some creative activities. 

 

Activity 1- I would like you to research TWO Olympic Champions. You must research one male and one female and collect as much information as possible about them using the attached sheet below. You can also draw a picture of them! I can't wait to see them!

 

Activity 2- Design an Olympic Medal. Last week, your creative activity was to make your own Olympic Medal. This week, I would like you to imagine that you have been asked to design a Gold, Silver or Bronze medal for the Tokyo 2021 Olympics. Use the research you should have completed about Tokyo and the Olympics so far plus your great imaginations!

 

Activity 3- Make an Olive Leaf Crown. Follow the instructions on the sheet to help you to make this. So far, the Olympic Torch, Olympic Rings and Medal activity look great, so keep it up! 

11.05.20- Week 4

Welcome to Week 4 of our topic learning about The Olympic Games. This week, I have set you some Geography work, an Olympic Torch research activity and another creative activity!

 

Activity 1- Use the Olympic Games Host Cities worksheet. For this activity, you have to read the cities that have hosted the Olympic Games and state which country the city is in. I would suggest using a map, atlas or internet research to find out the countries. You may already know a lot without using any! The answers should be written down in the country column.

 

Activity 2- Two weeks ago, I set an activity of creating an Olympic Torch from different resources. This week, I would like you to conduct some research into the Olympic Torch. I was lucky enough to see the Olympic Torch going through Selby for 2012 Olympic Games in London. I would like you to collect some research then write at least 2 detailed paragraphs about the history of the torch. I can't wait to see these.

 

Creative Activity- This week, your creative activity is to make an Olympic Medal. Follow the instructions on the sheet to help you to make this. So far, the Olympic Torch and Olympic Rings activity look great, so keep it up! 

04.05.20- Week 3.

Welcome to Week 3 of our new topic learning. I have been delighted to see so many pictures of you completing the topic activities from Week 2. I really can't wait to hear all the great new facts you have learnt over the past 2 weeks! 

This weeks learning focuses on the Modern Olympic Games.

In Activity 1, you will have to use the internet to conduct some research on Baron Pierre De Coubertin . Below you will see a worksheet with an image and lines underneath. I would like you to make notes first (on a separate sheet) on who Pierre De Coubertin is, what his role was and why he is remembered today. Please feel free to add in more facts that you find! I would then like you to write a detailed paragraph (short biography) from what you find on the worksheet. 

In Activity 2, you will need to fill in the gaps on the Modern Olympic Games Reading Activity. The children must select the correct word from the word bank at the bottom of the sheet, so that the sentences are correct. 

In Activity 3, you will need to conduct some more research on the Modern Olympic Games. You will need to use books or websites to find out the answers then write them onto your sheet. 

Creative Activity

Activity 2- Make the Olympic Rings. Use the worksheet with pictures, resources and instructions to produce your own Olympic Rings from paper plates. Make sure that you include the correct colours like you completed in the week 1 colouring activity. 

 

Please continue to send me lots of photos of you completing this work and I will post them onto our website! 

27.04.2020- Week 2.

Welcome to Week 2 of our new topic learning. I have been delighted to see so many pictures of you completing the topic activities from Week 1. It really looks like you're already enjoying this new topic! 

This weeks learning focuses on the Ancient Olympic Games.

In Activity 1, you will have to use the worksheet and questions to research the answers. The questions can be seen on the sheet, all you need to do is find the answers by conducting your own research. This information could be found in books, websites or posters.

In Activity 2, you will need to fill in the gaps on the Ancient Olympic Games Reading Activity. The children must select the correct word from the word bank at the bottom of the sheet, so that the sentences are correct. 

In Activity 3, you can complete the Acrostic Poem using the letters form the word Olympics. We have studied these poems in class, however I would like the children to choose their own words relating to the Olympic games. 


Creative Activity

Activity 1- Make an Olympic Torch. Use the worksheet with pictures, resources and instructions on to produce your very own torch. Next week, some of the activities will link to the Olympic Torch, so I thought it would be great for you to make your own.
