The Winter Olympics, being held in Beijing, China is starting on February the 4th 2022, and ends on 20th February.

“The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph, but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered, but to have fought well.”
Olympic Creed

A personal idea would be to use this to develop our classroom or school creed, discuss each section, explore what it means and decide how much of it would be relevant to schools life.

Twinkle has freely shared a page of information about the winter games and has created a whole set of worksheets; however, the worksheets are only available for those people that subscribe.  The information page offers lots of simple facts about the games, a little information about the GB team and its medals.

Activity Village has developed a range of resources ready for the events taking place. Worksheets, puzzles, and crafts. There is an information page about each separate winter sport – the downloadable pages are for members only but there are many ideas to inspire!

The Educators’ Spin On It website has collected 30+ winter Olympic activities from around the web. Scroll down past the adverts to see a list. Many of these are for young children!

There is a really interesting web page about The Winter Olympics in Beijing aiming at being carbon neutral, it has not been written for children but could help towards discussions on the environmental issues.
