Create a Character Challenge 

We want you and your family to create a character that could be part of a football-themed story, using our Create a character challenge resources.

For this challenge we teamed up with the National Literacy Trust and author Dan Freedman. Dan is the author and creator of Jamie Johnson, a football-obsessed boy hoping to become a world-class player. You might have read some of his books, or even seen the Jamie Johnson stories on CBBC! 

You can watch Dan reading from Kick Off, the first Jamie Johnson book in the series, and get a free copy of it on the National Literacy Trust Family ZoneYou can also watch TV presenter Ben Shires interview Dan, about what it takes to become a football writer - watch the interview

Here is Dan introducing this week’s challenge:

By sharing your character ideas with us, you could be our Star of the Week, be in our community story or be featured on PremierLeague.com.


Once you've taken part in the challenge, don't forget to watch the interview with Ben Shires and Dan Freedman!
