Our Community Trust have created an activity for any young football fans and wannabe reporters to get involved in – have a go at creating some match commentary from one of our recent fixtures!
It’s focused around our thrilling FA Cup fixture against Sheffield United from March 2020 – a game packed with action, but unfortunately for the Royals ending in defeat after extra-time.
Click here to see the activity – with links to the highlights of the match, as well as the official match report, squad lists, a run-through of the action and some useful pointers about how to make your commentary interesting and engaging.
And BBC Radio Berkshire commentator Tim Dellor has kindly recorded a video full of hints and tips on how to use the power of words and speech to bring the game to life for listeners! Take a look at the video below to hear Tim’s advice and ideas.
The activity was created for the Premier League Primary Stars programme, which uses the appeal of professional football to inspire children to learn, with a particular focus on created curriculum-related resources focused on KS1 and KS2.
