Stoke City FC footballer Peter Crouch takes on the role of a PE teacher in a lesson with a difference in the Premier League’s latest ‘Best Lesson Ever’ video to promote its Premier League Primary Stars education programme.
The striker first appears on a screen at the front of the Maple Court Academy school hall as a pre-recorded video, before he surprises the class by walking through the hall doors and joins in with the class exercise session.
Peter Crouch said: “I loved PE at school and as a father of three I am so pleased the Premier League is using its popularity and reach to help get children active and encourage learning. It is great to be part of something that is supporting primary schools.”
