In all the project will cost £14,500.
The WFC Trust also received our final award of £769 from last term’s work from the National League Trust.
Nick Symmons and his community team will be supported by first-team manager Gordon Bartlett and members of the playing squad in this activity for the coming programme.
The Trust recently received the following excellent feedback from Roxeth School in Harrow: “The children were enthralled by the PE/maths programme offered by Wealdstone Football Club. The maths lessons linked well to the new National Curriculum offering a good range of differentiation for all abilities and enabled the children to become engaged with the fun side of maths. The fact that the coaches were first team players with real life experiences and stories of the footballing world worked wonders to spark the children's interest and keep them motivated throughout the unit, especially those usually less-engaged in PE.”
The Numeracy and Football programme is a maths and football related course for primary school Year 3 children that links numeracy maths lessons to activity sessions run by Wealdstone Football Club coaches.
The aim is to create an add-on teaching mechanism that, by linking football-based activity sessions to the application of mathematics helps enthuse young schoolchildren to assist them in absorbing the basics of maths in an enjoyable setting. It involves a football skills/coaching session being complimented by a one-hour football themed numeracy lesson.
