Reading text

My favourite sport is football. I love playing football with my friends in the park. 

I like lots of other sports too. At school we play basketball on Mondays and we do gymnastics on Thursdays. We run in the playground every day and sometimes we play table tennis. After school on Tuesdays I do karate, and on Fridays I go swimming with my mum. 

I like watching sports too. At weekends, I sometimes ride my bike to my grandad's house, and we watch football on TV. Our favourite team is FC Barcelona. We get really excited and we're so happy when they win!

Top tips

  1. For sports that we play against another person or team (often with a ball), we use play.
  2. For activities that end in ing, we say go I go swimming.
  3. For other sports, use do ... I do karate.
  4. You can say I like playing … or I love doing
  5. You can say when or how often you do the sport: on Mondays, at weekends, after school, every day.
  6. You can say where you do the sport: at school, in the park, at my grandad's house.
