Spurs and Gunners offer homeschooling activities for children

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR AND ARSENAL are providing educational and entertaining online material to keep children occupied during the Covid-19 crisis.

Tottenham’s ‘ The School of Spurs’ programme can be downloaded via the clubs’ official website and includes Family-friendly workout suggestions, Spurs-themed word searches crosswords, an opportunity to learn more about the Lilywhites history, creative writing and drawing tasks and the Spurs times tables.

A message from the club on www.tottenhamhotspur.com explained: Not only is the content intended to be fun and entertaining for juniors, but we hope it is also educational – touching on themes including English, Maths and History.

We’re keen to hear feedback from parents and children alike, along with any suggestions for further activities we could release for youngsters during this challenging period.

Meanwhile, across North London and Inspired by the Gunners double-winning season of 1998, the Arsenal Double Club is announced at the clubs’ flagship education programme which combines football and learning.

Introduced on www.arsenal.com, worksheets are available for children between the ages of 3-11, with the Gunners explaining; 

Mirroring the two halves of a game of football, the programme combines a 45-minute classroom session, in which Arsenal related educational resources are used, with a 45-minute football coaching session.

Launched in 1998 initially as a literacy intervention, the programme now incorporates other subjects including numeracy and modern foreign languages. The scheme is normally delivered in local schools and estates, as well as pupil referral units and prisons.

In response to the need for educational materials to support families with homeschooling their children, we are delighted to launch our adapted Arsenal Double Club materials that are suitable for use at home, starting with this series of worksheets based on our historic 49-game unbeaten run.

More materials in other subjects will be released in the coming weeks, so follow Arsenal in the Community on Twitter for updates: @AFCCommunity.
