Across 10 lessons, students are taught five core reading comprehension skills using engaging football-themed texts. Their progress is then tested in online challenges. Completing the challenges will unlock exclusive video tutorials from top freestyle footballers, which will teach students impressive football tricks.
Skills Academy helps year 7 and 8 students improve their reading through the medium of freestyle football. Research by the National Literacy Trust has shown that one in three participating pupils have improved their reading age by an average of 11 months across the 10 week programme.
