Essex Schools Can Join In With Women's Euro 2022 Fun
Schools don’t have to wait until the summer to feel a part of UEFA Women’s Euro 2022, with the launch of the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 Schools Programme, which aims to inspire and unite pupils to get involved with the tournament.
This huge event is coming to England in July, and it's set to be the biggest European women’s sporting event ever. 16 nations will be competing across ten venues, in nine cities, with the next generation at the heart of its celebrations.
The programme gives teachers across the country access to a digital pack, consisting of free, digital, cross-curricular resources all themed around the Women’s Euros. The resources, produced by an educational specialist who has worked closely with teachers to ensure they fit in with the school curriculum, include an array of activities and tips.
These include how to run a Euro-themed assembly to challenge packs consisting of 22 activities ranging across play, support and learn themes. Pupils will be able to fill out a tournament time journal as well as take on the roles of organisers, creating their own Fan Zone, all alongside football festival packs and several take-home resources.
Available for Key Stage Two and Key Stage Three (but can be adapted for other age groups, including Key Stage One), resources will be released all the way up to the tournament to also include topics and themes such as Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE), Literacy, Maths, PE, Culture and Heritage and reading challenges.
Schools and teachers can sign-up now to access and download resources for free by following this link. Information on participating in grassroots Essex football can also be found in the menus above, by following @EssexCountyFA on Twitter and by searching for ‘EssexFootball’ on Facebook.
