Discussion in 'Primary' started by peeceee, May 5, 2008.

  1. we are doing this after half term as well but we haven't actually started planning too much. will keep you posted... I have seen it a few times on here if you searh it... I think also there are some lesson ideas on the web if you search... one thing I know is we are doing the olympics for our annual sports day but thats as far as we have got...
  2. I've thought of some ideas to keep you going:

    The olympic torch (route around the world)
    Famous athletes (historically famous people)
    Keeping fit (pshe)
    The Winter Olympics (just for variety)
    All About China - facts
    Medals (ordinal numbers)
    Greek Olympics
  3. There are resources on the internet, see links below. I have used some of the resources but I have a KS2 class. I like the Australian site.
    Websites based on the Olympics

    Hampshire has invested in this website because it believes that the school meal has an important part to play in the whole school day. It has been created to add value to the school catering service and provide helpful information for adults, teachers and pupils.
