Reading The Game

Help Your Local Community!

We want to provide opportunities to help individuals achieve their goals and realise their potential, but we can only do this with your support.

Reading the game allows Shrewsbury Town Foundation the opportunity to improve literacy engagement within primary schools across Shropshire. 

About the programme

Working within the locality of Montgomery Waters Meadow, the programme aims to inspire pupils to read more and improve their confidence and attitude towards literacy. This includes helping children to improve their writing skills through football related resources, encouraging children to write match reports, diary entries, letters and reading comprehension. Sessions take place at the school, but learning resources are provided by us.

This programme uses the power of football to inspire learning within the classroom. Each child receives a unique Shrewsbury Town Football Club workbook that has been designed by experts of the educational sector, to complete the classroom section of each session. The programme also includes an hour outdoor football skills session.
