Fantastic Football Fortnight

Team Earlsmead has sadly come to the end of two fantastic weeks of Football writing! Our goal was to introduce our pupils and staff to a variety of genres, guests and authors linked to football and to get children motivated and inspired to write!

True to form, the children have reached that goal and have written a range of excellent pieces of writing including, debates, interviews, match summaries, trip recounts, football information books, narratives and poems. A selection of this good work, as well as photographs, will be published in our very own magazine! 

We would like to thank all our guests who gave up a bit of time from their very busy schedules and came in to help us with this project. These include: 

Michael Bennett (Professional Football Association: Head of Player Welfare) 
Karen Hills (Manager of Tottenham Spurs Ladies Team)
Gareth Dace and his Team (Tottenham Spurs Foundation)
Ben Pearce (Journalist for Ham & High News)
