The Football World Cup 2010

18 June 2010

The TES have collected together World Cup resources here or visit the site and search for World Cup. Crick Software’s LearningGrids team have also been preparing a range of free resources for use with Clicker or Writeonline. Alternatively you can read Tom Palmer’s World Cup story, featuring football detective Danny Harte. A new chapter is written daily during the World Cup and posted on the Literacy Trust’s website to read with your class. It includes actual events as and when they happen and there are also writing exercises on the site.

Thanks to John for suggesting the football games on Primary Games Arena and watch highlights recreated in Lego
