Write Review

Rated 0

Football Factor, For National Curriculum Key Stage 2, For National Curriculum Key Stage 3, Interest age: from c 6 years, For reluctant readers (children), Fiction, Sporting stories (Children's / Teenage)

Each story follows the ups and downs of one member of the football team Sheldon Rovers as they aim for Cup glory.

Joe's been outstanding all season. Everyone reckons he's been Sheldon's player of the year so far. He has a great understanding with Ledley. But he's also very superstitious. When he loses the lucky coin that his granddad gave him for "safe keeping", he gets the jitters. And there's a little matter of a cup semi-final to play. After making a bad error in the game, Joe makes amends in the penalty shoot out. And the coin turns up!

Freestylers are a range of reading books with low-level text for readers with a reading age of 5-7. The engaging stories are perfect for older, struggling readers as well as emerging readers. All texts have been checked by reading consultant Dee Reid.
