Coupe du monde féminine de la FIFA, France 2019 / Women’s World Cup

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! 

Do you know of any others interesting resources? Please do mention them in the comments below and I will add them to this blog! Merci! Et que la meilleure gagne!!
