Exciting Footballer Visit to Year 1

Year one had an exciting sporty morning, as two professional football players from Charlton Athletic Football Club came to visit us! We had the opportunity to ask lots of questions about different sports and then we had a group discussion about what we would like to be when we grew up. Kimberley Dixson spoke to us about her career as a female footballer where she played for both England and Charlton!! It was great to learn how we could work hard and pursue a career in Sport just like she did when she was younger. The visit inspired us to challenge gender stereotypes within Sports and encouraged us to aspire to be whatever we want to be when we grow up. What a fantastic role model to have in our local community."
