The FA literacy resources

In partnership with the Football Association, we are excited to be able to offer two new sets of football-themed resources in 2017.

The FA Writing Challenges

Students from five schools have won equipment packages and free tickets for a whole class to attend the SSE Women's FA Cup Final by taking part in three free writing challenges for students from Years 7 & 8. Aimed at both boys and girls, the FA Writing Challenges asked students to write speeches, poems and newspaper articles. Each challenge was introduced by inspirational videos of top female players and supported by sets of free teaching resources. 

The competition is now closed but the resources will be re-purposed and made available again soon. 

Literacy with the Lionesses reading resources

The England Women’s team look like they have a very good chance of taking home the trophy at the Women’s Euros this summer. To capitalise on the excitement around the tournament, The FA and National Literacy Trust have teamed up to create a toolkit for teachers based around the Lionesses at the Women’s Euros.

The free Literacy with the Lionesses toolkit will be packed with fun football-themed activities for boys and girls in Years 5 to 8, using the excitement around the Lionesses’ progress in the Women’s Euros to develop boys’ and girls’ writing and reading skills.

Alongside the toolkit, top football author Tom Palmer will be writing a mini-story that follows the Lionesses at the Women’s Euros, which will be released a chapter at a time during the summer term, starting on July 3.

The toolkit will be available to download on 5 June. Complete our expression of interest form below to be notified when the toolkit and story is available to download.
