Here some resources I made for my class for the upcoming UEFA EURO 2016 in France. This pack includes:
1. A two pages long information sheet with facts about the past, this year's games and the mascot. This could be used for research (individually or whole class) when making posters/leaflets etc.
2. A 4 pages long comprehension based on the fact sheet. The text is on the top half of the sheet and questions are below for children to answer. It is differentiated in a higher and a lower comprehension - one with mostly retrieval and one with retrieval and some inference questions.
3. A geography worksheet for mapping countries in Europe that take part. Children can choose 12 countries, find them on the map and make a key. If you wanted to differentiate it, you could print it out twice and fill in the key for one already. I would recommend copying the map on A3 paper to make it easier for children.
4. Maths sheet on bar charts: Children read the table of who was in the final in the past and what their results were and make a bar chart of how many goals were scored in each final throughout the years and answer some challenge questions about it. Differentiated - one is more scaffolded and the bar chart has been prepared, the other needs children to label their own bar chart (differentiated in bar charts going up in 1s, 2s, 5s).
There is also another sheet where children choose 5 countries and represent in a bar chart how many times each country has participated in the final.
5. Maths activity on finding all possibilities: Differentiated three ways. Children have the task of designing a new football kit for their favourite country and have to choose three (four) colours. They then find all possible ways of putting a new kit consisting of either shorts and t-shirt or shorts, t-shirt and socks together for their chosen colours. This activity comes with a notebook file to model.
6. This is an activity based on the flags of the participating countries in the EURO 2016 in France. There is one sheet with all the names of the countries and their flags which is followed by 4 activity sheets:
1. Comparing two flags. Children choose two flags, draw them and compare them - what is the same and what is different.
2. Sorting the flags into symmetrical and non-symmetrical.
3. A blank Venn diagram for children to make up their own categories to sort the flags into (if you want to differentiate you could give them the categories).
4. A blank Carroll diagram for children to make up their own categories to sort the shapes into (if you want to differentiate you could give them the categories).
7. Maths - Adding several numbers (single digit, multiples of 10/100 and adding several two-digit numbers - differentiated) using several top UEFA EURO '16 footballers' names printed on the sheet.
