Shared learning and teaching

Before reading

  • Establish what the children already know about the modern Olympics. Clarify facts about where and when they have been held, what sports are included and the medal system.
  • Challenge the children in pairs to think of as many Olympic sportspeople as they can. Discuss what qualities they all have – eg, determination, talent, courage and strength. Talk about why we might refer to them as ‘a legend’.
  • What information do we need to know about these people – eg, where and when they were born, nationality, sport, number of medals won.
