Micah Richards

Last September, Micah Richards, ex-Manchester City and England footballer, TV pundit and ex-pupil came back to pay us a visit, officially open our new building and meet one of his “old” teachers – Mr Moore. Here is what Mr Moore had to say:

I think that in its simplest form, the role of a teacher is to help children to take their next steps. 

I was lucky enough to have been in the right place at the right time to help Micah to tackle and overcome some of his first challenges. Those small steps seem to have made quite an impact and I am filled with pride to see Micah continuing to take on opponents with his undefeatable qualities of determination, passion, joy and laughter.

I hope that his story may encourage your children to believe that they need to have bigger dreams.

Mr Moore

Parts of the visit were filmed by Sky as part of the Sky documentary Micah Richards: Tackling Racism in Football . Here are a few excerpts from the documentary courtesy of Sky.

KS2 Parents: Has your child mentioned ‘Sumdog’?

Sumdog claims that it personalises Maths through adaptive learning and multi-player games that pupils love – and we agree!

At ACE, every child in KS2 has a Sumdog account. In fact, children are currently enjoying a ‘National Holiday Contest’, where they are competing against others from across the UK.

Teachers will have provided children with the required login details.

Please use our Maths – No Problem! vocabulary list to get the most out of your child’s Maths home learning: http://allertonceprimary.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/16/2016/11/Glossary-of-Terms-for-MNP-.pdf
