Dear Class 3LW,
Your homework this week is to research a country of your choice that is currently competing in the Euro 2016 football tournament in France. Try to choose a country that you know very little about.
Using your research, I would like you to make a Fascinating Fact File all about this European country. You should include information about how big this country is, how many people live there (population size), its capital city, where it is in Europe (which other countries does it share borders with?) and what, in particular, this country is famous for.
I would also like you to research all about their national football team. Who is their captain? Who is their manager? Who is their best player? What is their world ranking? Were they expected to have a good chance of winning Euro 2016 and how are they currently doing? Where are they playing their matches at the moment? Have they ever won the European Football Championship or World Cup before? Who was their greatest ever player?
This fact file can either be presented by clicking on 'add comment' on this blog and then writing it up on computer or, alternatively, you could present it as an A4 poster.
I look forward to reading all about your chosen European country!
