You can choose to work through the Olympic Games Thinkers Keys, or any other work that has been produced as ideas and tasters for you. However, the preferred option for most of you may well be to set your own inquiry based on something that these tasters have triggered in your mind, or that watching the ceremony and opening events over the weekend has sparked an interest for you.
Here is a link to the history of the Olympics. You might find some interesting information for your inquiry.
Share your Inquiry theme Key Questions with one of the year 8 teachers and set up what you will need to present your findings to us.
If you want the work put on to a google doc to make it easier for you let one of the teachers know and we can set it up.
Let's have a great day of learning together.
