Undefeated at the Emerald

On Friday, 11 of our lucky Year 5 children headed to the Emerald Stadium for the Super League media launch day.

Our ACE athletes represented school in a tag rugby event against multiple other schools from around the city.

Through team work and communication, we managed to go undefeated on the Leeds Rhinos’ home ground!

Duathlon Champions!

This afternoon 6 children from Year 5 formed a team to compete in a duathlon at the Brownlee Centre.

Our ACE team finished in first place by 1 second and took first, third and forth individually.

“We are in shock because we won and 3 of us came in the first 4.” – Michael

“I was the first person across the line.” – Ben

“I was proud of myself and the team for coming in first place.” – Helen

Huge well done to all our athletes.

Multiskills event @ Leeds Beckett University

Last week some of our Key Stage 2 children were lucky enough to go to Leeds Beckett University to take part in a variety of sports taught by specialist coaches. The children made the most of such a fantastic opportunity, taking part in squash, american football, tennis, basketball and athletics events, to name a few.

Huge well done to all the children involved!

League match @ Carr Manor Primary School

A HUGE well done to the football team who managed to break our 2 month scoring drought in a 2-0 victory over Carr Manor Primary School. Both teams played very well and used space effectively to ensure we had a great game of football.

Well done to Kai who scored both goals for us.

Again, a massive thank you to the Friends of Allerton for providing us with a new team kit, it proved to be very lucky!

We move up to third in the league!

Touch rugby @ Gledhow

Last night our Year 5 touch rugby team travelled to Gledhow for a Year 5 touch rugby competition.

ACE made the final of the competition, unfortunately losing 2-0 to a Year 6 team from Gledhow.

The team were fantastic representatives of our school and I am incredibly proud of how every member of the team performed on the day.

Well done to Stathi for winning a star performer medal!

ACE @ All Saints

On Monday we travelled with the football team for an away game at All Saints. In a hard fought battle the ended up 0-0 but both teams massively impressed all staff from both schools.

The passion, team work and desire to win, matched with outstanding sportsmanship was on display from the kick off to the final whistle.

Special mention to Liam who had an amazing game in goal and kept us in the game throughout!

School Games Mini Tennis competition

Yesterday 8 children in Year 4 and 5 represented our school in the ActiveSchools Mini Tennis competition at Chapel Allerton Tennis Club.

The children played well and won more than they lost! Unfortunately, we didn’t qualify for the next round but we had a great time!

A huge thank you to Matt from School Games for an amazing event. All the children in attendance were fantastic examples for their schools and the event was one of the best organised events we have attended all year!
