On Thursday, some Year 6 children went to visit the 'Sheffield Football Treasures' exhibition at the Central Library in the city centre. Before that, each child had written a persuasive letter to Mr Fernandes to persuade him to allow them on the trip. It was a wonderful day and well worth the effort.
The children each had a photograph with the FA Cup, as well as a an informative talk by Gary who was employed to look after it on it's travels around the UK and abroad. He told them all about the history of the FA cup, how much it's worth and how the competition had grown form the first one in 1911, where only 15 teams entered! The children also saw lots of other football treasures, including the Clegg Shield, which is the oldest schools' football trophy in the world (first played in 1889!).
