In the main part of the lesson, measurements such as distances can be investigated. Pupils use the internet to find:
* the circumference of the centre circle
* area of a pitch
* perimeter of a pitch
* distance from one goal to the other
* distance from the penalty spot to the goal.
In the plenary we share our findings and for further work or homework I ask pupils to draw a scaled down football pitch. A treat would be a class visit to a professional ground to make measurements. I've developed my own teaching pack on this theme for sale.Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Isaac Anoom teaches at Donnington Primary School, Willesden, north London
