1 Franklin Watts downloadables for every child s learning journey THE OLYMPICS is a four-book series that gets behind the scenes at the world s greatest sporting spectacle. In The Olympics: History travel back to ancient Greece where the Olympics began, and learn about the modern Olympics since their revival in For the facts behind the headlines, read The Olympics: Scandals. For fascinating facts and stats about the events go to The Olympics: Events, and wonder at the record-breakers in The Olympics: Records. Worksheets There are two photocopiable worksheets, a page from the book and a printable pictogram guide to the London 2012 Olympics for children to complete. They stand alone, but using them in conjunction with the book will offer a more complete learning experience. The ancient Greek Olympics activity sheet develops children s historical imagination and stretches their writing skills. In addition it practises letter-writing and research skills. Use the photocopiable page from the book to help them get started. The BBC and the British Museum have informative websites for further research about the ancient Olympics. The activity sheet relating to Olympic posters develops design and art skills, whilst challenging children to think about the idea of symbols and how they are used in design. Posters for the London 1948 Olympics and the Rome 1960 Olympics are reproduced in the book. Many more examples are freely available on the Internet. The pictogram guide lists all 26 official Olympic sports for London 2012 and gives a brief explanation of each. By completing the activity children will have a useful explanatory guide to the Summer Olympics. This activity could be adapted to learn about the sports included in the Winter Games or the Paralympics Learning objectives To develop imaginative writing skills and letter-writing skills. To develop the historical imagination. To develop design and art skills. To record, select and organise historical information. Titles in the series: Click on the PICTURE below for more information

Write a letter to a friend telling them how you feel and which event you will compete in.

Read the following page taken from The Olympics: History to start off your research. You could include a sketch of you in training for your event.

4 OLYMPIC POSTER Since 1896, when the modern Olympic Games began, top designers have created many striking posters for the Games. Use the Internet to look at some of them. Now think up a design for a summer or winter Olympic Games or a Paralympic Games. Most of the posters include the Olympic rings or other Olympic symbols, such as the dove of peace, the torch or the olive wreath. Others use images that represent the host city or country. Decide where your Olympic Games will be held and think of some images that are linked to that city.
