As part of their English studies, year 8 students have been working on Personal Projects. Lewis chose to research Mansfield Town and he wrote to Mansfield player Matt Green.
Lewis received a letter from Matt who confirmed he’d love to come to the Year 8 Showcase and see some of the work produced. Matt arrived, complete with camera crew and a Director of the football club, to look at work and have a game of football with our students.
English teacher Helen Snelling told us: “The afternoon was a brilliant success; it has hopefully begun a partnership between the club and school whilst giving the students opportunities to develop their speaking and listening skills with a wider audience. Matt Green was fantastic with the students, listening to them, engaging them in their learning and promoting a good attitude to work. We can’t thank him enough”
