England's World Cup Game on Monday...
Last week I had two very distressed young men in my office, concerned that England's first World Cup game was scheduled for 1:00pm next Monday, and that they would miss it. Happily, I was able to reassure Mr Tyson and Mr Gibbs that as this is a very rare occasion and something many people feel strongly about, we will be showing the match in school.
On Monday afternoon, KS2 pupils will have the option of watching the game in the hall on the big screen. If they prefer not to, they will have an hour of tennis coaching with Matt, our coach from Alrewas Tennis Club. They will then have supervised (fun!) learning activities in class OR lend a hand creating scenery/props for our Christmas shows.
KS1 may be a little young to be expected to sit for the entire 90 minutes in the hall, but all teachers will keep children who are interested informed of the score and perhaps play part of the game in the afternoon.
All children are welcome to wear a football/sports kit on Monday to show their support!
