Tranmere Rovers first team players Connor Jennings and George Ray took a trip to Millfields Primary School on Thursday Afternoon to celebrate World Book Day as part of our Premier League Primary Stars programme.
Premier League Primary Stars uses the appeal of professional football clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.
The aim is to inspire girls and boys aged 5-11 in the classroom, the playground and on the sports field so we took the opportunity this World Book Day to visit local school, Millfields Primary, with two first teams players. They gave a talk to the children all about their favourite books, why it’s important to read growing up as well as a few questions on being a footballer and healthy eating.
The players also helped put the finishing touches to the bookmarks that the pupils had made and designed as well as taking part in a vocabulary game.
We spoke to Connor Jennings about the visit.
He said, “We have really enjoyed our time at Millfields this afternoon."
“It has been great to get involved in the school's World Book Day. For us to come out and interact with the community and with some of the SWA2 members who come and watch us every week is really important, not only to us but to them too."
“It’s things like this that make them go home with a smile on their face.”
We would like to thank Millfields Primary for their participation this afternoon and we look forward to working with you again in the future.
