Primary Stars weekly challenges are back!
Whilst we eagerly await the safe return of children to schools and look forward to the new 2021/22 schools’ football season in September, there are excellent opportunities being provided for teachers, parents and pupils to help not only home school but that also include some thought into the challenges that children may be facing through these unprecedented times.
Premier League Primary Stars have a great selection of online resources and home learning materials for primary aged children in England. They have also launched their Weekly Challenges, which, this week sees them team up with the National Literacy Trust and provide guidance for pupils on how to build a character who would take a starring role in a football story.
“For this week’s Premier League Primary Stars challenge, author Helena Pielichaty is asking pupils to create a character for a story, thinking about their character’s thoughts and feelings as well as what they look like on the outside.
Download our free challenge resource pack to go alongside the Facebook Live event, containing the challenge template worksheet and resources to help your pupils think about different emotions. Don’t forget to share pupils’ work with us on Twitter @PLCommunities using #PLPrimaryStars #WeAreOneTeam or by email to [PLPrimaryStars@premierleague.com]PLPrimaryStars@premierleague.com for a chance to win a box of books for their class or to be our Star of the Week!“
The Facebook live event can be watched back anytime, if you missed the original broadcast earlier this week!
Last week’s challenge saw TV & radio host Roman Kemp encouraging children to create a weekly routine to help them stay on track during lockdown, Dr Alex set a weekly challenge to spread kindness and TV’s Dan Walker encouraged children to write a ‘stay connected’ poem back in early January.
