Olympic Legacy

Olympic Units Overview - (Julia Weston and Nicole Gurvidi. Primary Learning and Achievement Team)
We welcome you to our units of work for the Olympics.
We have devised three separate themes celebrating different aspects of the games:

Welcoming the World Aims to celebrate the diversity of the nations who will be attending the games.

High Street 2012 Is linked to the development taking place and was based around the original marathon route.  It aims to highlight the best of the borough’s history and architecture.

Beyond 2012 Encompasses the objectives of the Olympic committee in leaving a lasting legacy for the regeneration of East London.

  • Each unit contains a medium term plan and example lesson for Years 1 and 2, Years 3 and 4, and, Years 5 and 6 covering science, humanities, the arts and PE.
  • There are no prescribed time scales.

  • The Olympic values are embedded throughout as are references to the EMA Language Structures and speaking and listening objectives.

These units would not have materialised without the hard work and creativity of: Rosie Godwin, Helen Spedding, Moitur Rahman and  THAMES

We hope these units are enjoyed.
