Football Club mascots kicked off Youth Sport Trust’s National School Sport Week with Mascot Monday – leading activities in local primary schools to get pupils moving while they learn.

Forty football mascots from Premier League, English Football League and National League clubs teamed up with their partner schools and got involved in Super Movers assemblies and classroom sessions – created in a partnership between Premier League and the BBC.

Warm ups at Tottenham Hotspur's Training Ground

Tottenham Hotspur played host to a lively alphabet-themed warm up session for 130 local pupils, led by CBBC stars Naomi Wilkinson and Hacker T Dog.  The special visit marked the start of the annual Enfield Special Schools Football Festival, which is run in partnership between Enfield Council and the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation.

Naomi, who stars in several of the free Super Movers Brain Booster videos available to teachers, explained: “It’s that movement that is key to boosting learning, so what better way to do that than by taking the pupils through the alphabet in a fun way alongside my trusty comrade Hacker T Dog!”

Premier League trophy visit for a Beckton school

The Premier League trophy also paid a special visit to Gallions Primary School in Beckton, who are West Ham United Super Mover Champions.

Pupils took part in a host of Super Movers activity – and then got the chance to see the Trophy close up!
