Year 5 History – The Olympics!

In our History lesson, Y5 learned all about the Olympics and the timeline of events that have occurred in order to make the Olympic Games what they are today.

We understood that the Olympics first took place in Olympia, Ancient Greece and there was only one event – the men’s 200m sprint!

The children worked in groups to order the event cards of the Olympics into chronological order. They needed to work as a team to choose which Olympic event happened first, which took place most recently and what came in between!

We then discussed how the Olympics has changed and developed over time.

Well done Year 5!
