What would you ask?  Ask your child to think of questions they’d love to ask their favourite athlete.   They could write a list of questions using a range of questions words such as ‘​when’​, ‘​why​’, ‘​who​’, ‘​what​’, ‘​where​’ and ‘​how​’. Your child could then answer their own questions in the role as their hero.
