Issue 6 - January 2001
David Blunkett recently launched "Playing for Success", a national initiative run in association with football clubs and the local education authorities, to establish out-of-hours study support centres for underachieving children at key stages 2 and 3.
What is the best way to make school work interesting? Sport, and in particular, football of course!
A series of key stage 2 numeracy and literacy workbooks linked to Manchester United and Liverpool has just been published and the English and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has produced "Howzat", a mix of physical education and classroom resources for key stage 2.
The Manchester United and Liverpool workbooks - Arsenal is to follow - are direct offshoots of Playing for Success.
Unfortunately there are no questions of the "If David Beckham is paid £100,000 per week, how long will it take him to earn the money to buy seven Ferraris?" variety.
