The first in EYFS Home’s series of stories for young children.
This is a wonderful rhyming tale about a little boy called Jack.
Jack loves everything about sport.
But when things start to go wrong for him, Jack gets discouraged.
How will Jack bounce back?
Find out in this inspirational tale about how to be your own cheerleader. This uplifting story builds resilience, confidence and teaches children how to bounce back when things go wrong.
Jack first had a rugby ball thrown at him from the moment he could sit up and started playing at Cullompton Rugby Club aged 5. He then went on to play as many sports as he could at Blundell's School with cricket playing a massive part in his life as well as rugby. He knew early on that rugby really was the sport for him.
Jack found it hard juggling school, exams and training down at Exeter Chiefs, but he was determined to make it happen. It made for long days and some very understanding teachers. Jack signed his first contract with the Chiefs at the age of 16 and has been lucky to be there ever since with some incredible coaches and support staff.
Jack was determined to get his degree from Exeter and spent
three more years juggling his time again. He was never the biggest on the pitch, so he had to be determined and quick thinking. In sport, you get many knocks both physically and mentally, but you learn to pick yourself up and start again — the same as in any other job and in life.
