Allerton 2 – 2 Gledhow – A magnificent performance from everyone on the team!
Excitingly, we had our first home game in 3 years! With the support of teachers and out of school club, we felt very prepared for the second game against Gledhow and we came out flying.
High press from Amir, Rory and Kenzie paid off as a nice move came to a tap-in for Michael. But Gledhow bounced back with 2 goals. Although it was 2-1, Allerton never dropped their heads.
Another well-worked move turned into a ‘shot’ from Kenzie and it bounced off the defender into the goal to make it 2-2. We had a few chances but the opponent’s keeper had a magnificent game. The 2 strikers had some shots but it was not to be.
Special mentions to the unsung heroes Lana, Lawen and Emily, doing a magnificent job keeping our opponents from scoring. Benjamin pulled off some remarkable saves to prevent us losing as well.
Well done to everyone who played in the team.
Still currently undefeated this year!
Match Report by Michael, Lana & Emily
We have been celebrating refugee week this week across school. In year 6 we have been exploring media portrayal of refugees and asylum seekers as well as using Eoin Colfer’s graphic novel ‘Illegal’ in order to support us to walk in the shoes of a refugee on their journey to safety.
On Friday afternoon we were visited by a speaker from Amnesty International who spoke to us about human rights and the creation of the human rights work as well as how this applies to refugees.
As part of our evolution and inheritance work in Science we have spent today celebrating “Moth Day”. The stimulus for this was the text ‘Moth’ by Isabel Thomas and with lovely illustrations by Daniel Egneus.
We used the story to help us track the stages of adaptation of the peppered moth (Biston betularia).
This afternoon we then looked at a research paper from the University of Manchester which measured moth populations in Leeds. We used their academic data to plot the moth populations. We then drew conclusions from this data and compared with the findings from the paper abstract.
A rain-soaked victory
Within the opening minutes, a whipped in free kick saw Kenzie bag the opening goal and set the team up for the rest of the match. Throughout the first half, the team played some incredible football even in the most difficult of conditions.
Despite Gledhow equalising in the closing moments of the half, Allerton continued to stay positive and play attacking football. The second half saw this high energy attack pay dividends with Michael managing to squeeze the ball passed the Gledhow goalkeeper.
A special mention must go to Lana whose tenacious defending helped break up the Gledhow attacks and kept their front three at bay.
Despite the rain lashing down, our ACE footballers showed great resilience and teamwork to gain a well-deserved victory. Proving that they could do it on a cold, rainy night at Gledhow!

We have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with Mrs Johnston in the Art Studio again this half term, where many of you have had lots of success in creating your very own baseball boot and trainer art.
