Year 4 – We are a Team


Recommended for children aged 7-9

In We are a Team, Charlie and Alice are surprised to be told that sport is as important to their schooling as academic study. They discover that games have played a formative role in every society.

The cousins also find out, through the guidance of their PE teacher and from their own experience on the playing field, that the fun of sport rests on everybody following the rules, training, acting as a team and being prepared to lose well as well as to win.

All these and other qualities, such as perseverance, self-control, respect, truthfulness, magnanimity and obedience, apply not only to sport but to all aspects of life, in the home, at school and in every community where people live and work alongside each other.
