Children at Jarrow Cross were saddened to see the racial abuse footballers have faced and wanted to do something about it!
We created posters that are proudly displayed on our school fence (beside the traffic lights by the exit of the one way system).
However, not only did we discuss racism, we also discussed the fact that the vile words and actions from a small minority of individuals, has overshadowed the outstanding success that England has achieved.
In the words of one of the children, "Just like the pitch invader, do not give racists the attention they want." Let us focus on the good! England has done us all proud!
We also used our class award of the week template to award footballers with our 'Footballer of the Euros' to show how proud we were of each and every footballer!
