G.B. has a history of doing well in Sailing. 15 sailors have been selected to represent GB at the Tokyo 2021 Olympics. The 15 include Rio gold medalists Hannah Mills in the 470 and Giles Scott for the Finn class. Alison Young will be making her third Olympic appearance. I have included 2 medal lists. The first show that we did well back at the turn of the 20th century. We have repeated this at the beginning of the 21st century. The second list shows GB top the Sailings gold medal list by some margin. Sir Ben Ainslie’s 4 gold , plus Giles Scott taking the fifth Finn class in Rio I have included some information and pictures about all 7 classes. I have created a phrase and vocabulary sheet plus 2 comic strips. With the boat outlines the children can create a comic race strip which I hope they will colour and write about. There is also a Word search using the names of the 15 sailors. I hope you will find this work useful and the children will enjoy the activities.

Cricket - Clock Cricket

Clock Cricket is played by a group of 8 children. Only one wicket is used with a stump at the bowler’s end. The children are set up in a ‘circle’ - the ‘circle’ can either go clockwise or anti-clockwise. There are always two children batting - when one is OUT they change ends. They are only in for 6+ balls . Once the 6+ alls have been bowled it is one move to the right. This keeps everyone interested and busy. To make it more interesting an individual score sheet could be created. Everyone is kept busy. A class can be divided into maybe 4/5 groups and each group have their own game.

Eric Liddell -Running for God

Eric Liddell (1902-1947), an outstanding Olympic athlete over 100/200/400m, is remembered for refusing to race on a Sunday at the 1924 Olympic Games because of his Christian beliefs. He was born in China to his Scottish missionary parents the Rev and Mrs James Dunlop Liddell. He was educated at Eltham College, Blackheath (1908-1920). Through time it has been forgotten that he was also a missionary in China for 18 years- his life was cut short by an inoperable brain tumour which he suffered while interned at the Chines Weishein camp.
