Tuesday 7th May - U11 Netball: West-Bradford Finals
Following last week's success, Mr Kearsley and the Y6 Netball team headed back to Beckfoot Thornton for the West-Bradford finals. We had a tricky start, losing 3-0 to Girlington and 2-0 to Lidget Green. The results certainly didn't reflect the matches, as Allerton didn't take advantage of the shooting opportunities they created. Going into the next two games against Princeville 'Red' and Princeville 'Blue', Allerton turned on the heat and showed their impressive shooting skills, winning both matches 4-0. Team Allerton rounded up the tournament with a 1-1 draw against St Philips, which earned them 3rd place and a bronze medal.
Well done to: Haider (4 points), Rayyaan (1 points), Dylan (2 points), Aqsa (1 point), Ruqaiyah (1 point), Savannah and Tegan. 5 very competitive matches where you did yourselves and the school proud.

Mr Kearsley and Mr Bird took 14 children from Year 5 & 6 to compete in the West Bradford Netball competition at Beckfoot Thornton. Both Y6 and Y5 teams played 3 games each, with the Y6 team finishing joint first in their group. The team won 2 and drew 1 to seal their place in the West Bradford Netball finals on Tuesday. Congratulations to Rayyaan, who was our top scorer with 3 points, Haider, who scored 2 baskets, Savannah and Ruqaiyah, who scored a point each as well as Tegan, Aqsa and Dylan.
It was a learning curve for our Y5 team, who performed and improved admirably, gaining valuable experience for next year’s tournament. Well done to: Yusuf, Laibah, Saif, Hannah, Gracie, Maha and Ariyan.

Monday 11th February
Mr Kearsley and Mrs McHale accompanied 12 children from Y6 to Bradford Girls' Grammar School to compete in a hockey tournament against other schools in West Bradford. The children were split into 2 teams of 6 and played in 4-a-side games against 3 other schools in their own groups. Both teams progressed to the quarter finals after finishing in 1st and 2nd place in their respective group. Winning 1, drawing 1 and losing 1, Beckfoot Allerton 'A' were knocked out 2-1 in a tight quarter-final against Princeville. Well done to Eesah, Eesah, Ibrahim, Avah, Sienna and Diya who were unfortunate not to progress further. Beckfoot Allerton 'B' managed to go all the way to the final, not losing a game on their route there. In a very tense final, Girlington came out on top 2-1, which meant Beckfoot Allerton took 2nd place on the night and booked their place at the Bradford Schools Winter Games. Well done to: Eessa, Umair, Sime, Leigha, Amber and Aqsa on a fantastic achievement.
Friday 8th February
This weeks after-school 'Fixture Friday' was mini-Tennis for children in Year 4 & Year 5. 18 children competed in 2 groups of 9 players across 4 courts. Some excellent skills on display during lots of very competitive fixtures. Even more impressive was the children's umpiring when they weren't playing, which allowed the games to run smoothly and fairly.
Well done to Group 1 winner Alisha who won all her 6 games and runner-up, Juveria who won all her 5 games.
Group 2 was won by Maha and Narmina who both played 5 games, winning 4 and losing 1. Jayden finished as runner-up, playing 6, winning 4 and losing 2.
Brilliant work from everyone who got involved. Watch out for more 'Fixture Friday' announcements for next half-term....coming soon!
