Sporty summer resources for English

By 28/06/2024No Comments

With the Olympics just around the corner, we wanted to share a topical KS3/4 English resource pack you can use with your students.

This debate pack poses the question “Should athletes be expected to sacrifice mental health for physical health and success?”

The discussion around professional athletes and their management of mental health was something of a hot topic during the 2020 Olympics. The fascinating debate pack asks students to form their own opinion, providing context around the issue, opposing views to discuss, a personal response, a for-and-against task, and a final group debate task. It presents the framework from which students can effectively discuss and debate the issue of mental health in sport.

We’re delighted to share this free activity pack from our friends at Beyond. It will be freely available here on our website until the end of July.

We hope you’ll enjoy using it with your students. If you do, share a couple of photos with us or tag us on social media (@Educake), and we’ll send you some treats in the post!
