Excitement is in the air for football fans across the planet!

The next FIFA World Cup kicks off this summer in Russia and all eyes will be on some of the best players in the world as they take to the international stage of football.

32 teams from across the globe will be battling it out to get their hands on the famous golden trophy.

England’s first game is on Monday June 18th at 7pm against Tunisia.

We want to know who do you think is the best player in the tournament and why? Which team is your favourite? Which squad do you predict will win? Do you love football and what does this World Cup mean to you? Who will you be watching it with and where?

Use this blog to share your thoughts, ideas and predictions.

The best blog entries will win some football prizes (such as footballs, stickers or books) and will be announced in assembly by Mrs Topham (Writing co-ordinator) and Mr Dawood (Computing co-ordinator).

We are looking for exciting sentences, persuasive language and your passion for the game. The deadline is Monday 9th July.

Memorable Robin Wood

Children in Years 5 and 6 had an amazing time on their residential weekend at Robin Wood activity centre. They showed great courage, collaboration and resilience.

They loved the challenges and the children were a credit to the school.
