Remember the day when a Premier League footballer came to school to take part in a PE lesson?

That will be the chants from the youngsters at Snaresbrook Primary School as West Ham star Aaron Cresswell joined them for their first PE lesson of the new term.

The Hammers defender surprised pupils when he walked into PE lesson, joining pupils from Year 5 in a session which involved bean bag throwing and catching, tail tag, and football drills.

He donated a free Premier League Primary stars equipment pack whilst he was there including footballs. Numbered and lettered floor spots and giant dice, which teachers can use in lessons across the curriculum to help inspire children to learn and be active.

“It was brilliant to head down to Snaresbrook Primary and get involved in a PE lesson with the kids. PE was my favourite lesson at school, so it was great to see how full of energy and enthusiasm they all were and how much they loved the new equipment – it took me back a few years!”

Graham Ford, Headteacher, Snaresbrook Primary School said: “We can’t thank West Ham United Foundation enough for today. It’s been such a lovely day and the children will benefit tremendously both from the partnership and the equipment donated.”

Ross Williams, Senior Schools Development Officer of the West Ham United Foundation added: “We’re so honoured to work with the Premier League to deliver such an inspiring programme. It was a really nice day and it was great to see Aaron interact so genuinely with the children.

“Additionally, it’s been brilliant for the West Ham United Foundation to be able to provide children with positive role models, such as Aaron, to help support their educational development.”

Run in partnership with Nike, 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 October 26 to visit PLPrimarystars.com to register and apply for the free Nike kit or equipment pack.
