A message from the foundation -
"With schools now closed across the United Kingdom in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, the Chelsea Foundation has launched a learning resource for people looking to keep their children active and engaged while at home.
The free resource, called Extra Time, has been shared with our school network and will use Chelsea players from across our men’s and women’s squads in a series of education activities focusing on fitness, literacy, maths and creativity. The 10-day education resource will feature different players each day and also include special challenges from Frank Lampard and Emma Hayes. Foundation head of education Sam Gaskin-Kemp said: ‘I am proud of the speed at which we have managed to pull this together.
The Foundation is committed to supporting the community and that doesn’t change despite the current situation. ‘The education team work with lots of schools and lots of pupils so we hope this resource will be put to good use and help keep children active and educated while at home. ‘We know children respond well to the Chelsea brand and engage with us while in the classroom or on the football pitch so this learning resource will allow them to do that from the safety of their own homes.’
Alternatively, you can download the workbooks on a daily basis by using the link below and view the PDF versions of the first two workbooks. Make sure you return here each day for the latest workbook."
