Olympics: Going for Gold

Uploaded April 2010

Year 8 - Scheme of Work - 6 weeks

This sow aims to develop students' knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of the Olympic Games, past and present.

It is designed to make students study a range of non-fiction and texts on sporting themes.

The scheme not only requires students to work independently on a range of activities but also to collaborate with others in speaking and listening activities.

The medium term planning format allows teachers the freedom to choose resources and plan individual lessons, including starter activities.  However, in order to ensure equality of provision and progression for all pupils, teachers will need to adhere to the stated objectives and outcomes for each week.
