Literacy - This week you are going to write your own newspaper report based on a sporting achievement or event. Today, read the example report and familiarise yourself with the features. Now, think carefully about what you’d like to write your report about. Do you need to carry out some research into a famous sportsperson? Or you may choose to base your report on a Sports Day from Whiston. (See the bottom of the page for more hints and tips).
Geography - Have a look at the image of the Olympic flag. What does each of the colours represent? Could you create your own Olympic flag? What does yours represent? You could research the different flags of the countries that take part in the Olympics and try to incorporate different aspects of these? This interesting website is full of facts about what different flags mean: https://www.kids-world-travel-guide.com/world-flags.html

This week, from Tuesday until Friday, we’d like you to have a go at writing your own newspaper report about a sporting event or achievement.
Some ideas to inspire you might be:
- England winning the 1966 World Cup;
- Alistair Brownlee supporting his brother over the finishing line at the World Triathlon Series;
- Usain Bolt breaking the 100m world record;
- ‘Super Saturday’ at the 2012 Olympics;
- A football match that you have played in or watched;
- Any other sporting event that you have competed in or been to watch
- A past Sports day at school;
- You may even be really creative and set up a miniature sporting event in your back garden and choose to write a report on this.
Remember that within your report you should aim to write about the following:
- The build-up to the event. How did the competitor/s feel? How did the spectators feel? Was it expected to be a key moment in history?
- The day of the event. What happened? Did everything go to plan? Why was it such a fantastic achievement?
- Quotes from people – how did the competitor feel? What was the reaction of other people?
- What does the event mean for the future? Are there any lessons to be learnt?
