Ayoze Perez Heads Back To School For Premier League Primary Stars PE Lesson
Newcastle United’s Ayoze Perez today surprised pupils at Beech Hill Primary School by joining in with one of their Premier League Primary Stars PE lessons, helping children get active on their return from the summer holiday break.
Perez surprised pupils when he walked into their Premier League Primary Stars PE lesson, joining pupils from Year 2 to Year 6 in a session which involved an array of sporting activities including bean bag throwing and catching, tail tag, and of course football.
Whilst at Beech Hill Primary, the Newcastle United footballer donated a Premier League Primary Stars equipment pack, including footballs, numbered and lettered floor spots and giant dice, which teachers at the primary school can use in lessons across the curriculum to help inspire children to learn and be active.
The back to school visit coincides with the opening of the Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme application window, which enables primary school teachers across England and Wales to apply for a free Nike football strip or a free equipment pack like the one donated by Perez today.
Newcastle United is one of 101 Premier League, EFL and National League clubs in England and Wales which provides in-school support to teachers and pupils as part of Premier League Primary Stars – the organisation’s education-linked community programme.
Ayoze Perez said: “It was brilliant to visit Beech Hill Primary School today to donate their Premier League Primary Stars equipment pack. As a Foundation Ambassador I love coming to see the work they do and it was great to get involved in today’s PE lesson!”
Year 4 pupil Jacob said: “It was amazing! It’s my first time ever seeing a football player not on TV. I’ve loved it today, it’s probably been one of the most exciting days of my life!”
Run in partnership with Nike, the Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme provides primary school teachers with football kit and equipment to aid active lessons both in the classroom and on the sports field.
The scheme is available to primary school teachers who register to participate in Premier League Primary Stars at PLPrimaryStars.com, where curriculum-linked resources including lesson plans and worksheets are available to download for free.
Teachers based in England and Wales have until 26 October 2018 to visit PLPrimarystars.com to register and apply for the free Nike kit or equipment pack.
