Climbing @ The Climbing Lab

Today we took 6 Year 3 students to The Climbing Lab for a taster session in rock climbing. The children were a credit to Allerton CofE and had a wonderful time.

Special thank you to Active Schools for the opportunity and for the coaches at The Climbing Lab for making the session so enjoyable for the children.

Huge well done to our climbers who made it to the top of the wall!

Dodgeball champions!

Huge congratulations to our undefeated girls dodgeball team who beat 5 other schools to be crowned champions of our cluster.

Determination, hard work and teamwork combined for impressive performances and an unbeaten record, including some very close games.

The girls really put the ace in ACE!

Year 6 football 2nd October

On the 2nd of October, our Year 6 football team took on Alwoodley Primary School in the first game of the football season. In a well battled game, we saw commitment, teamwork and high levels of sportsmanship throughout. Unfortunately, we lost the game 3-1 but Mr Kay and I were incredibly proud of the team and look forward to future matches!

A very well done to everyone who played and a special thank you to the parents who turned up to support our young athletes!

Tennis at Alwoodley tennis club

Today Year 3 children went to Alwoodley tennis club for a taster session. They had a fun afternoon learning new skills and hopefully will want to keep playing tennis and maybe join a club! The coach said “The children were amazing today. Really well behaved children and listening, their technical skills were fantastic”

White Rose Cheerleading Competition 21st February 2018

On Wednesday, 12 girls from Year 5 and 6 took part in the White Rose Cheerleading competition at Morley Academy. They performed a dance routine with poms in front of a large audience and were thrilled to be awarded 3rd in their category. They also took part in a ‘Stunt’ workshop and Simrath demonstrated skill and bravery when lifted by the girls!

The judges commented on their “lovely high kicks” and “great energy”

Thank you to Miss Murphy for practising with the children and supporting the cheerleading  club

Allerton CE Primary School come out on top!

The Hockey team went unbeaten in the Active Schools Hockey Festival held at Weetwood Sports Centre. After a slow start the team soon found their stride and beat every team that stood in their way. After a tough morining of 7 games in which the team were unbeaten they then progressed in to the semi-final against Alwoodley Primary School who they beat 5-3. By this point the team were full of confidence and went in to the final with only one thing on their mind and that was to win the match and retain the title- and that they did.

The team will now go on to represent Leeds at the West Yorkshire Games on Saturday 25th March 2017.
