Stoke City 3 - Man Utd 1
Your Task:- In the back of your books write a short report from the point of view of the team that you have been given. For example, a Stoke supporter may say the following:-
We deserved the win. We could have won the game by more if we had put our chances away.
A Man Utd supporter may say:-
We were unlucky really. Stoke’s goals were lucky. If Delap had not been on, they would not have scored any.
What is a plantation? It is a farm that grows only one crop – such as tobacco, sugar or cotton.
Slaves were used to do all of the hard work whilst the white owners collected the profits.
Life on the Plantations was easy for the slaves. They got to work outside in the pleasant sunshine and spent time with their families.
Life on the Plantations was hard, back breaking work. Slaves were often treated badly and had little time to look after their families.
