Pupils who study German have been taking part in football matches conducted and refereed in German over the past half-term.

Despite the great sporting rivalry between Germany and England on the football pitch, our pupils have enjoyed learning about football tactics and strategy in German and then having the opportunity to put this into action on the football pitch itself.

These sessions for pupils studying German in Years 6 to 9 are delivered by a former Arsenal coach and have been the source of much excitement. It was thrilling to see pupils putting the language they acquired in their classroom work into practice on the pitch. Our budding football stars were keen to demonstrate their footwork and their German!
