Home learning - English

A variety of English resources to do at home. Poetry, reading, spelling challenges - we've got you covered!

The Premier League Primary Stars team has selected some fun English resources to be used at home.

We will be adding lots more resources over the coming weeks, so make sure to check back soon or sign up to our mailing list to be the first to find out.

  • Create a character challenge - We have teamed up with the National Literacy Trust and author Dan Freedman to bring you the Create a Character challenge. We want you to create your own fictional character that could be part of a really fun football story or part of the world of Jamie Johnson, the main character in Dan Freedman's book series. 


  • The Premier League Five-a-side reading challenge - Encourage children to pick a book to read using the 'five finger' rule. Once you have chosen a book as a family using the 'five finger' rule, we would like you to draw a picture of your favourite character.

  • The Premier League Writing Stars poetry challenge - Get writing together at home and take part in this fun poetry challenge. We want children and families to write poems about 'ambition', and send them in to be showcased on the Premier League website. Use our videos and resources to help you get started.



We would love to hear about how you're getting on with our resources. Send us in videos or photos via Twitter at @PLCommunities using #PLPrimaryStars or drop us an email at and you could be featured in our Community highlights corner.
