This week the Learning Project is titled: Sports.
The project this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more about sports and games. Learning may focus on the history of sport, sporting-heroes, physical challenges and performance.
Activities for you to choose from throughout the week:
Our Sport Heroes
How many famous sports people can you name? Choose a sports person and research online about them. Can you find out how and when they started their career, or any other interesting facts about them? Create a timeline that details all of the achievements of their sporting hero.
Tissue Paper Sports Logo
Use scrunched up tissue and paint to recreate the logo for your favourite sport team or design and create your own sport logo, perhaps for a school team. Your child could sketch this with pencils as an alternative.
You could even design a logo for your House Team.

Try Go Noodle https://www.gonoodle.com/ and dance along to one of their routines - there’s plenty to choose from and the whole family can join in! Remember to tweet a
video of your workout. You could design a poster encouraging others to take part in sporting activities. Think about how you would persuade others to join in. What type of words could you use?
Sharing Sport Interests
Ask different family members about their favourite sports and any sports they took part in growing up - were they a part of any clubs? Did they take part in any competitions? Did they win any trophies? They might find out something new about their family members! Following this, use the information to write a newspaper report recounting one of the memorable events? You could include quotes from the interview.
Explore diversity in sport - find out about the Paralympic games and famous Paralympians such as Ellie Simmonds.
How have these people overcome challenges to represent their country in their chosen sport? Write a letter/email to a chosen athlete and ask them questions about their sporting journey. Or draw a detailed sketch of the athlete during a winning moment.
