Year 4 football team go out of the cup on penalties!!

The year 4 footballers exited the cup in the quarter finals in the cruelest way possible by being beaten 3-1 on penalties. The game finished 3-3 after full time and the score line remained the same after extra time, so there was only one thing for it ton decide the tie and that was penalties!!

Unfortunately Allerton C of E Primary School lost 3-1. The team played with real heart and having been behind three times in the match they worked incredibly hard to get themselves back in the game and it was a shame to see them exit the cup in such a way. I am confident that they will come back from the defeat and they should be proud of what they achieved and how they played.

Netball match vs Holy Rosary

The netballers found themselves on the wrong end of an 8-0 score line as they took on a very very strong Holy Rosary and St Anne’s side. The children put up a good fight but unfortunately they were up against a better side. I cannot fault the team for their effort and attitude and I am confident that we will improve on the score line in our next match.

Active Schools Inclusive Sports Hall Athletics Competition

Seven children from KS2 were selected to represent Allerton C of E Primary School in the Active Schools Inclusive Sports Hall Athletics Competition which was held at The John Charles Centre for Sport. The children took part in a range of running, jumping and throwing events and they were absolutely fantastic so much so that they have been selected to represent Leeds at the West Yorkshire School Games which will be held in March 2017.

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.
