The year 6 football team saw themselves knocked out of the League Cup in what was a very bizarre match against Shire Oaks Primary School.
Although the team started slowly and found themselves 2-0 down within minutes they soon found their stride and adapted their game to the small pitch and went in to the half time break 2-1 down. I was confident that the team would draw level which they did very early in the second half and much the same as the year 5 game they created chance after chance but just could not find the back of the net, and they were punished for this late in the second half when Shire Oaks scored twice in quick succession to win the game 4-2 and proceed in to the next round. A tough lesson learned but again I am confident that the performances will continue to improve and we will start turning the score lines around.
The year 6 footballers played their first football match of the new year in a friendly against Hovingham Primary School. The team were a bit rusty which was to be expected but as the game wore on the performance got better and better. Although the team lost 3-2 there were a lot of positives to draw from the game and I am sure that the team will get back to winning ways very soon.
15 Children from year 4,5 and 6 were selected to represent the school in a friendly tournament held at Wath High School in Rotherham on Thursday 1st December 2016. The children were chosen because of their attitude, commitment, ability and behaviour. It was a fantastic afternoon with both teams putting in some great performances. The children were a real credit to themselves and the school and whilst the results didn’t all go our way, the players worked incredibly hard and gave a great account of themselves.
45 children took part in the Active Schools annual Cross Country event held at Cardinal Heenan High School. The course was not an easy one, however we had some fantastic results on the day with Stefan Robottom finishing in 13th place in the year 5 boys race, Cheani Williams finishing 11th in the year 5 girls race, Sian Bernard finishing 9th in the year 6 girls race and Sebastian Bryan finishing 10th in the year 6 boys race (each race had approximately 120 + runners). All participants should be proud of themselves as they were a credit to the school.
The year 6 football team took part in the Leeds United Foundation Road to Wembley tournament which saw 14 local schools fight it out for a spot in the next round. Unfortunately Allerton didn’t progress any further but they can be proud of the way that they performed and they gave a very good account of themselves.
