Jason Kenny Fact File
We would like you to create a fact file about Jason Kenny, based on what you have learnt last week.
The idea is that when the Y1 children return to school they can use your fact files to find out about Jason Kenny!
You need to complete the sections of the fact file with relevant pictures and information:
Basic information - date of birth, name, where he was born, what his sport is.
Achievements - what medals has he won? What events has he completed in? Why is he so famous?
Childhood- where did he live? What did he enjoy doing? When did he first start cycling?
Personal life - Who did he marry? Does he have children? Does he have pets?
Where in the world? - Which different places has Jason Kenny won medals and completed in. Think about cities, countries and continents.
On Google Classroom we have set up a Google Slides for each of you with a slide for each section of the fact file
You can add writing and images to each of the pages. Use all of your IT skills to make it interesting for the Y1 children who will be looking at them.
You can complete this work over the week.
A suggestion for splitting up the work is:
Monday - Basic information, Achievements
Tuesday - Childhood, Personal Life
Wednesday - Where in the world, finishing touches
You can find the research material on Jason Kenny on last week's work:
You can answer questions in your exercise book.
What new rules did Robin learn?
Why were they important?
What do you think of David?
What made Robin happy?
What would have happened if Robin had not followed the rules when he played with the others?
Are there good and bad rules, give examples? (e.g. it might be rules made up by one person who is being bossy about their game.)
How can your mindset help you to approach the things that you find challenging?
