Juan Foyth today (Friday 8 February) visited Chestnuts Primary School in Tottenham to join an Argentinian-themed assembly and help the students learn Spanish.
During the assembly, the defender talked to the children about his experience growing up in La Plata, Argentina, and how this compares to his life playing football in London. He then spent time with a group of children teaching them popular Spanish words and phrases.
Juan also helped staff from Tottenham Hotspur Foundation deliver a PE lesson for a Key Stage 2 class as part of the Premier League Primary Stars programme the Club runs in local schools across Haringey.
Club staff spend one day a week in schools across the Club’s local community delivering Premier League Primary Stars which provides PE support to teachers to help them feel more confident and gain an increased knowledge in delivering quality physical activity and sport lessons.
Since August, 2016, the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation has inspired over 3,500 children in schools across North London and Hertfordshire to learn through the Premier League Primary Stars programme, working with over 130 teachers.
Juan said: “It’s been brilliant spending the afternoon meeting children from the Club’s local community and giving them an insight into life growing up in Argentina. It was fun teaching them some popular Spanish phrases and helping them with their football skills.”
James England, Head of PE at Chestnut Primary School, said: “It’s been fantastic having Juan at our school today. Our children really look forward to their sessions with Tottenham Hotspur Foundation and I know they get a lot out of their classes. It’s great having a Premier League player like Juan visit the pupils to further develop their aspirations.”
