Going for Gold!

In this unit we will look at how the Olympics Games started in Ancient Greece and compare this to the Modern Olympics. We will look at how countries and different groups of people are represented such as the Refugee team and the Paralympics. We will locate past Olympic Cities and use this as a link to finding out the names of the seven continents of the world and the associated oceans. Children will find out the four compass points and use them in games and simple map work. In science the children will build on last terms work to explore the different types of food and think about their own food choices and whether a small change could impact on their health and well-being. We will find out what effects exercise has on our bodies and how rest and relaxation are also important. Then we will look at the needs of animals and how they get them from their different environments. We will consider how we can care for animals by providing for their needs.
