Primary Stars showcases more ways football can help youngsters learn

Primary Stars helps with maths lessons

30 January 2022

The Premier League's Primary Stars project has outlined some of the ways it is helping schools. The Premier League's Primary Stars scheme provides free, flexible and easy-to-use curriculum-linked teaching resources for schools. Using the power of football, the programme offers a host of free resources to teachers and pupils to encourage youngsters to learn, be active and develop important life skills.

Over the past few weeks, the project has released some of what it is offering to schools. This has included support with PE lessons as well as academic subjects. Football has been used to help with reading and a variety of maths topics.

A 'maths in the context of football' challenge will help pupils develop problem-solving skills, such as working systematically, analysing data and mathematical reasoning. Pupils can apply their maths knowledge to real-life football industry problems, in this case by selecting players in a football team based on their different attributes. See more here and below.
