Rotherham United are excited to announce that resources for the UEFA Women's European Championships are now available for schools at access.
UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 is coming to Rotherham in July and is set to be the biggest European women’s sport event ever. 16 nations competing across 10 venues, in nine cities with the next generation at the heart of its celebrations.
Schools don’t have to wait until the summer though to feel part of this huge event with the launch of the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 Schools Programme that aims to inspire and unite schools and pupils to get involved with the tournament.
The programme gives teachers across the country access to a digital pack, consisting of free, digital, cross-curricular resources all themed around the Women’s EURO.
Pupils will be able to fill out a tournament time journal as well as take on the role of organisers with creating their own Fan Zone, all alongside football festival packs and several take-home resources.
Rotherham Council’s Cabinet Member for Social Inclusion, Cllr David Sheppard, said:
“This is a key opportunity for schools to get involved in the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 tournament and join in the excitement as we look forward to the biggest women’s football competition at Rotherham’s New York Stadium. We want girls and boys across the borough to be inspired about football through the range of free cross-curricular resources."
“We welcome as many Rotherham schools as possible to participate and sign up to the resources so they can take part in this huge event.”
Head of Community at Rotherham United Football Club, Jamie Noble, said:
“We’re all incredibly excited to be welcoming top-class international women’s football to our town this summer and extremely proud to be playing host to the games at AESSEAL New York Stadium.
“The women’s game continues to go from strength to strength and as a football club we want to capitalise in every way we can to continue to help the game grow.
“Everyone at Rotherham United is looking forward to working with our partners and the schools to help deliver what I’m sure will be an unforgettable tournament.”
Available for Key Stage Two and Key Stage Three [can be adapted for other age groups including Key Stage One], resources will be released all the way up to the tournament to also include topics and themes such as, PSHE, Literacy, Maths, PE, Culture and Heritage and reading challenges.
