International Events Project - The Olympics

7th June 2016

This term we will be learning about the Olympic games to prepare for the Rio Olympics happening later this summer. Students will be finding out how the Olympic games began in ancient Greece and will learn about the rituals and sporting events that took place at that time. They will then learn about how the modern games were resurrected in 1896 and will learn about some of the great sporting achievements and personalities throughout the years. We will also be learning about the geography, culture and history of Brazil, the host nation.  

During the week of the EU referendum we will be introducing our students to some of the key concepts, issues and personalities involved in the debate.
