School closed 1st March 2018

Due to worsening conditions, and an unsafe school site,  we have made the unprecedented decision to close school today.

We will continue to monitor the forecast for Friday and keep parents updated via text & email.

We will rearrange our own World Book Day next week. Date to be arranged.

I apologise for any inconvenience the decision has caused and thank you for your support in the matter.

Proposal to Increase Primary School Places within the Alwoodley area

Proposal to increase primary school places within the Alwoodley area

Leeds City Council is consulting on a proposal to expand Allerton Church of England Primary School from a capacity of 420 to 630 pupils by permanently increasing the admission limit in reception from 60 to 90 pupils from September 2018. The consultation period commences on Monday 26 June 2017 and closes on Friday 21 July 2017 at 4pm. During this time we will be having some drop-in sessions at the school for parents, carers and residents to learn more about the proposal and ask any questions they may have. The format of the drop-in sessions is informal, with officers from the Sufficiency and Participation (school place planning), Built Environment and Highways teams in attendance to discuss any queries you may have about the proposals. You may attend any of the drop-in sessions between the start and finish times.

Meetings details:

Drop-in session dates and times:

Monday 26 June 5pm-7pm

Netball success!

We are really proud of all the sports competitions that we take part in. I love them to win but am delighted that they take part and do their absolute best.

Last week, I was proud of our netballers who had a great win against Highfield Primary School. Well done Y5/6!

ACE Cafe opens

This afternoon our ACE Cafe opened with an Italian themed meal. The food was prepared by Mrs Walker with help from Mrs Horsley and served to a crowd of ravenous pupils who were hungry after a day of brain work. Food was provided by TRJFP Fuel For School.

Hockey Team Triumph

We were really delighted when our hockey team beat 40 others, to represent Leeds in the Yorkshire School Games.

The team played 19 other teams, on Saturday, and came a magnificent 5th!

Miss Wright and Mr Siddiq were full of praise, for the outstanding attitude shown by the players. Well done!

Year 5 & 6 assembly

While snow was falling outside on the day of the Spring Equinox year 5 and 6 took our assembly in a warm, snug hall.

science1Our intrepid news reporters first told us about a science visit to Allerton High where they made fire from water! This was done by splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen which can be used to power rockets.

A report on writing and acting about different genres followed including adventure and fantasy genres

A news item followed on a year 5 fund raising movie night showing “Goodnight Mr Tom”. A review of a play about the story was then read giving a rating of 9/10 for the play.

Year 6 have been fund raising by running a romantic Valentines day disco selling food, candy, drink and raffle tickets.

Next we had some poems about Daedalus and Icarus brilliantly read by their authors.

CLCFor some strange reason some pupils kept walking across the stage. It turns out that they were acting out the walk to the North East Leeds CLC at Allerton Grange where they made some podcasts, some of which are on the class blog.

 

In music year 5 and 6 have been working on writing music about the planets and we were given a performances of two versions of Life on Mars.

Professor Adam showed us how in maths they have been looking at how to times and divide fractions. This was a bit mind stretching!

We closed with a prayer read by Iman.
