Children from two local schools received a special surprise when they started their school day, only to find out their lessons had been taken over by Liverpool FC first team stars.
Due to the pandemic, many children are currently having to learn remotely from home via lessons that are being delivered virtually by their teachers. Logging on to start their virtual history lesson, Year 6 children from Whitefield Primary School were surprised to realise they had a new teacher – Mr A Robertson.
The lessons were organised as part of the latest edition of Kop Kids, which is presented by club partner Joie. To help deliver the sessions, the players were supported by coaches from the club’s official charity, LFC Foundation.
Joie has also donated iPads to both schools to support with lessons inside the classroom. What’s more, the company has teamed up with the club’s official mascot, Mighty Red, to deliver a bi-weekly Instagram quiz to encourage families to come together and take part. To help support parents teaching their children at home, Joie, the LFC Foundation and Mighty Red have provided these additional resources.
As part of the club’s community response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the LFC Foundation and the Red Neighbours programme have been working together to support the local community. The Foundation has been delivering over 50 virtual sessions per week, providing an opportunity for people to get active, connect with others and still be a part of the Foundation.
All sessions are live throughout the week, with a chance to catch up on the LFC Foundation YouTube channel.
