Who's in the World Cup?

Hello 5EL,

 

Let's hear about the different countries and teams in this year's World Cup!

 

Research your World Cup country and share some interesting facts you find by commenting on this blog.  It would be good to include facts both

a) about the actual country (where it is, population, languages spoken, foods eaten, weather, traditions...)

b) about the football team itself (who's on it, any particular strengths, famous players)

 

I look forward to hearing your facts - I'll add mine later on too!

 

Enjoy the weekend,

 

Miss Locke

Honduras and its team!

 

Honduras is a small country in Central America.  Its official language is Spanish as it was conquered by Spain in the 16th century, later becoming independent in 1821.  Many people there also speak English, Garifuna and Mistiko and other indigenous languages.

Honduras has a population of over 8 million people.  It is a country of variations, with mountainous regions, rainforest areas, coasts and islands.  There is a wide variety of wildlife in the country, including over 6000 types of plants, around 250 reptiles and amphibians, and over 700 types of birds. In the Bay Islands there are bottlenose dolphins, manta rays, parrot fish, schools of blue tang and whale shark.  The climate varies across the country, with hot, wet and tropical conditions in the rainforests and cooler conditions in the mountains.

 

The Team!

The Honduras team play in the colours of their flag – blue and white. This is the third time the team has qualified for the World Cup. Their manager since 2011 is Luis Fernando Suárez.  Their youngest player is Luis López who is only 20 years old, whereas their oldest player, Noel Valladares is 37 years old.

Honduras lost their first match in the World Cup to France, 3-0. Their next game is against Ecuador.

Bonjour!

I'm Miss Locke and I'm a Year 3 teacher at Heyes Lane.  I love music and enjoy leading the school Choir.  I also like to speak French as much as possible! One of my favourite things to do when I'm not at school is to curl up with a cup of tea and a good book!
