Ancient Olympic Games.

For your topic work this week, I would like you to research and learn about the differences between the modern and ancient olympic games.  Please follow the BBC link and watch the youtube tutorials.  

For your activities,  you could complete the olympic games reading comprehension, design a medal - using your knowledge of the ancient games - or complete the olympic mindfulness colouring activities.  I would be really pleased if anybody managed to design a poster advertising the ancient games; remember to include a balance between text and images, have a catchy title and think about what information people will need to know - don't forget to state who is able to spectate!!
