This project has a PE focus and teaches children about a range of
sports and sporting events, the importance of exercise and healthy
living and the history of the greatest sports event on Earth, the
Olympics. At the heart of this project children write instructions
and explanations and develop additional skills using the technical
vocabulary associated with sport and the human body.
Recent reports have highlighted that children do less exercise than their
parents did when they were young. As part of ‘Healthy Wales Week’ the
children will write an explanation that summarises why regular exercise
keeps us healthy, not just in the short term but in the longer term too using
ICT as part of a 'Rich Task'.
In the Innovate Stage children apply their skills and understanding
by creating and organising our school sports day.
In this project the children will learn:
About the different parts and functions of the human body including
different muscle groups;
About the importance of healthy eating and exercise;
About the lives and culture of the ancient Greeks;
How the Olympics originated and the importance of the Olympics today;
About a range of other sports and activities;
About team work, competition, perseverance and what makes a champion.
