Extraordinary Maths - The Race into Space
The Extraordinary World of Football is an action-packed collection of maths, literacy, science and history resources and activities, all delivering learning through the theme of “football”. Whether you build your own immersive scheme of work or just select the ones you want, you’ll have more than enough for a day of creative learning, not just ninety minutes!
Who is it for?
You will find resources here for all year groups from EYFS/P1 to Year 6/P7. Each class teacher will be able to plan their own day, by searching all the age appropriate activities for the children they teach.
What is included?
All of the resources have been designed in line with curriculum requirements and include Maths, Literacy, Science and History. You might choose to take part in the whole-school maths challenge, The Mystery of the Missing Boots, before indulging in a little literacy by designing your own football strip or football club. Or what about some science, with The Material World of Football – or Football Forces? Perhaps you’d like to spend half an hour or so on one of our brilliant drama activities, then look at some social history with by exploring some milestone football moments? Whichever route you choose, there is more than enough content for you to plan the perfect day for your class.
How does it work?
Once you have purchased the day you and your colleagues will have access to the whole bank of Extraordinary World of Football resources to use how and when you please. Class teachers can choose to use the timetable we have provided or use the editable framework to design a bespoke day of activity. Of course, you don’t have to use the resources as part of a whole-school event. You may want to run day for just one key stage, one year group, or even just one class.
What people say
“Children loved listening to Ady, and reading the story of the missing boots during the assembly.. Beginning the day with the maths ‘missing boots’ contextualised the day and created an exciting buzz. Children fully participated in the day and really enjoyed understanding how football is not just a sport, but has many cross curricular links which they pursued in the different planned activities.” Kensington Primary School
