Year 6 football vs Shire Oaks

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.

Year 5 football

The year 5 football team saw themselves the wrong end of a 3-1 score line!!

The team were fantastic from start to finish and played the best football they have played all year but they just couldn’t put the ball in the back of the oppositions net. It was a really frustrating game for all involved as the team worked so hard but just couldn’t convert their chances. Whilst a win would have been great I am still very proud of the way they played and I am confident that the great performances will start winning them games.

Keep up the hard work!!

Year 5 football against St Augustine’s

The year 5 football team suffered a cruel defeat to St. Augustine’s Primary School. It was definitely a game of two halves as Allerton started slowly and found themselves 2-0 at half time, however  they turned it around in the second half and drew level within minutes. Both teams battled it out for the remainder of the half and it looked like it was going to finish 2-2 BUT a brief lapse in concentration saw St. Augustine’s score with the last kick of the game.

Year 2 athletics competition

25 Year 2 children represented the school in a mini athletics competition which was held at Allerton High School. They were competing against two other schools in the area in a variety or running, jumping and throwing events. The children were a credit to the school and they worked extremely hard in all events, the best bit about it was that they had a smile on their faces from start to finish.

Year 6 football against Hovingham

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.

Year 6 football vs Hovingham Primary

The Year 6 football team traveled to Hovingham Primary School to play a friendly football match with the idea that it would be good to blow away the cobwebs from the long Christmas break and get them ready for their cup match the following week. The team worked hard and played with real grit and determination but unfortunately they were beaten by a stronger side 3-2.

Netball match against Holy Rosary

The netballers suffered a heavy defeat against Holy Rosary Primary School, in what was their first ever league match, and although the score line wasn’t one that we were wanting there were a lot of positives to take away from the match. It was a very shaky start from Allerton C of E Primary School and it was clear from the start that the team were very nervous but as the game progressed they grew in confidence and continued to show real determination throughout the game. I am confident that with a few more games and a bit more training the team will go from strength to strength.

Active Schools Inclusive Sports Hall Athletics’

What a fantastic morning we had at the ‘Active Schools Inclusive Sports Hall Athletics’.

7 children from Key Stage 2 were selected to take part in a variety or running, jumping and throwing events in what was a really fun packed morning at The John Charles Centre for Sport. The children worked really hard in all of the activities and showed real commitment and determination to succeed. There efforts were not in vain as the team were selected to represent Leeds at the West Yorkshire School Games in Huddersfield on Wednesday 8th March 2017.

A huge well done to all involved.
