Wednesday 15th July

Good morning everybody!  We hope you are all well and are keen to get started!  Remember to send your work to your class email addresses:

 

Mr Bemister: otters@knowle-plymouth.co.uk

Ms Edwards: foxes@knowle-plymouth.co.uk

English:

Today you are going to learn all about the history of the Olympic games.  Think back to your lessons about ancient Greece – what can you remember?  First, watch the ‘History of the Olympics’ powerpoint at the bottom of this page. 

 

Answer these questions in your books:

There is one question for each slide:

  1. Where were the games held?
  2. What was the ‘sacred truce’?
  3. Why was the hoplite race so tough?
  4. What would it have been like to be in the crowd watching the games?
  5. Why was the Pankration such a nasty event?
  6. What was the event held specially for women?

 

Now:  Imagine you have spent a day at the ancient Olympics.  Write an acrostic poem about your day.  Choose from ANCIENT OLYMPICS or OLYMPIC GAMES or OLYMPICS

 

Think about:

  • The atmosphere of the day
  • The events you watched
  • Use words from the powerpoint to help you to start sentences.

Maths:

In maths this week, you will be consolidating your understanding of the number operations, using mental arithmetic and written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. You will need to know when to use mental arithmetic and when to use a written method.

Topic:

This afternoon you are going to compare the ancient and the modern Olympic games.  Watch the ‘Olympics – past and present’ powerpoint at the bottom of the page.

 

In your book

Create a table with the headings;  ‘Olympics past’ and ‘Olympics present’ and under each heading write at least 5 different facts about the different events.

 

Remember:  Do your exercise plan!
