As a qualified FA coach as well as a languages teacher, I feel that our pupils need to know about the women's world cup, taking place in France, and we can use it to do so much in our classrooms!

I hope this will help raise awareness of the sport. When I told my Y6 pupils today that the FIFA World Cup was starting on Friday, they made fun of me, not a single one of them realised what I meant! One could not help comment that football was not a sport for girls... so we still have work to do as teachers!
