What most football fans will have been pondering over for the past couple of weeks is who will make their fantasy football team!
So it got me thinking, why not create a fantasy football league for your classroom or school?
The Fantasy Premier League site allows you to create your own team and league for FREE - http://fantasy.premierleague.com/. Once a league has been created, the code can be shared with children to join. There is also an app available too.
- It is all about the numbers! Children have to handle a simple budget, work out who will best fit their team based on goals, appearances and value.
- Develops children's decision-making and problem-solving skills.
- Gives the opportunity to reward and celebrate achievements with weekly awards or certificates.
- Provides the perfect opportunity for debates and discussions about players, teams and selections backed up with children's access to statistics and facts.
- Above all, a great way to involve all children, parents and teachers with something fun!
