Last Friday, a football report written by McKenzie Barrass, a child in Year 4, was printed in the official Leeds United match day programme.
Some of the children in Years 3 and 4 have been working with the Leeds United Foundation as part of the Premier League Primary All Stars initiative. The children got to watch a game at Elland Road and, using the writing skills that they learnt at the club, wrote a match report.
When McKenzie saw that his report had been chosen he said, “I was shocked but also really pleased to see my work.” Mat Everett, the Senior Project Officer for the Leeds United Foundation said, “It was a really tough decision. There were so many great reports to choose from!”
Congratulations to the following children for winning an achievement award at Tuesday’s assembly.
