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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Twenty children from KS1 tested their steel at the ‘Active Schools KS1 Sports Hall Athletics’ event held at Farsley Celtic F.C. The children participated in several track and field events throughout the day. It was a great introduction to the Sports hall athletics concept and all involved showed real talent and determination. Well done all!
The girls’ football team have started the New Year with a bang beating Bramham Primary School 5-2. The team are going from strength to strength and are improving with every game. They are a real credit to themselves and the school and special well done to Toni who scored 3, Abi and Sian who scored a goal apiece.
Thirteen children from year 5 took part in the ‘Active Schools Come and Try Basketball Session’ lead by Leeds Force. The children participated in a variety of different skills and drills with the evening culminating in some small sided matches. The coaches and staff were fantastic and the children were engaged active from start to finish- they didn’t want it to end. All involved were absolutely fantastic.
The Year 4 footballers put in some fine performances at the Leeds United Foundation 6 a side tournament held at Carr Manor High School. The team worked hard and played some good football in all 6 of their matches. They won 3, drew 1 and lost 2 -most importantly they all enjoyed themselves and showed great team spirit throughout the afternoon.
Tag Rugby club has been a fantastic club to run this year with the children all giving 100% in every session, and it was a perfect way to end the year with them playing small sided games at half time of the Leeds Carnegie V Bedford Bulls Premier League match. 10 of the children formed the guard of honour at the start of the game and got the opportunity to walk the players out on to the pitch. We then watched the first half with great anticipation before the children were divided up into three teams to play some exhibition games on the pitch at half time. It was a great evening, and a wonderful opportunity for the children to experience playing under floodlights.
