National Literacy Trust releases free World Cup themed teaching resources

The National Literacy Trust has released free teaching resources themed on the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia to inspire pupils to get writing.

The online materials were created in partnership with Walker Books, the publishers of the Football School series, and include practical classroom activities which guide key stage 2 pupils to write their own football-themed lesson plan for their favourite subject.

Alongside classroom activities, bookmarks, posters and certificates are also available to download ahead of the World Cup, which kicks off in June.

“These resources promise to spark children’s creativity and nurture a love of writing, as pupils are inspired to become journalists, statisticians, historians, explorers and even musicians in their quest to write their very own World Cup football school lesson,” said Jonathan Douglas, the director of the National Literacy Trust.

“The tournament brings together such an incredible range of nations, each with their own fascinating history, culture and traditions.”
