A new cross-curricular key stage two resource has been developed by the Football Association of Wales which is linked to the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Women’s Champions League Finals being hosted in Cardiff during June 2017.

The resource is free of charge and is available to access via the Welsh Government’ Digital Learning platform HWB. 

With 1,313 Primary Schools in Wales, the resource has the potential to engage 136,890 Welsh pupils enrolled at key stage two. The resource has already been accessed by teachers 4000 times.

The resource aims to:

  • Allow children to engage with the UEFA Champions League Final and UEFA Women’s Champions League Final legacy in Wales
  • Capture and inspire our 7-11 year old’s
  • Drive the cross-cutting themes of literacy, numeracy, and digital competency via a series of fun and exciting learning challenges.

24 rich learning tasks have been created aligned to the six area’s identified by the Donaldson’s curriculum review; these include: maths and numeracy, science and technology, humanities, expressive arts, health and wellbeing, and language, literacy and communication.

There are competition elements linked to each of the rich learning tasks. A selection of submitted projects will either be displayed or performed at the UEFA Champions Gallery, at the UEFA Champions Festival in Cardiff Bay between June 1st – 4th 2017.
