All over the world, parents and teachers are juggling home schooling with home working. Children are e-learning, with no chance to kick a ball with friends in the playground. To give everyone a daily  break from teaching and studying in isolation, the UEFA Foundation for Children has invited some of European football's top players and coaches to become a Champions Teacher.

Scotland midfielder Leanne Crichton, reading in English, is joined by three goalkeeping experts in our fourth series of dictation videos. David Grof (Hungarian), Franck Raviot (French) and Petr Kouba (Czech) each provide school lessons for a difference for children aged 6-12 across Europe.

Children simply need to grab a pen and paper, pick a video, then write (or type) as the Champions Teacher reads a short excerpt from their favourite children's book or poem. To check results, download the PDF of the full text.
