At All Saints' we are always looking to take part in competitions, and play matches, against other schools. We also enjoy competing against each other in class and competing in whole school challenges. Below are some highlights of the last sporting year.
Sports Hall Athletics:
We were represented in this annual competition by a squad of 18 Year 5 and 6 children. Twice they competed really well at Allerton Grange in a variety of track and field events.
The football team regularly played matches and competed in tournaments. One memorable game was a 5-1 victory against St Nicholas RC Primary on a bitterly cold afternoon. Ezra was our man of the match on that occasion. Three close games against our neighbours Ebor Gardens were very enjoyable too including a goal from Elliot from the half way line! The Football Olympics was a great tournament where we were "Germany" rather than "All Saints" and our girls played really well at the annual all girls St Bartholomew's tournament.
Two events stood out particularly from the various rugby tournaments:
A team of Year 3 children consisting of boys and girls represented the school at the Health For All Tag rugby Competition. 12 schools were competing. They did amazingly well winning the whole competition!!
Our Year 4 and 5 Rugby team had a gallant effort in the semi-final of the Leeds Schools Rugby LeagueTrophy . They played Gledhow and drew 20 points to all. The team showed a great deal of effort and courage and never gave up. They did not qualify for the final as the rules state if it is a draw and both teams have scored the same number of tries then the away team qualifies. Unlucky but a wonderful performance!
Speed Bounce Challenge!
This was the first of our whole school challenges. All the children from Nursery up to Y6 enjoyed taking part. Each class ended up with two champions ( 4 in Nursery). Well done to all!
Sport Relief Basketball Shooting Challenge:
As well as coming in their sports gear, the children took part in this challenge, again aimed at getting two champions per class. Raising money, alongside some close competition - a good day!
Year 2 and Year 4 worked really hard on their skipping and took part in the big skipping festivals. Great fun as always.
The Brownlee Triathlon:
The whole of Year 5 joined hundreds of other children to take part in the Brownlee Triathlon at John Smeaton. For most it was their first taste of this event and they are now wanting more!

LET'S HOPE FOR ANOTHER FANTASTIC YEAR OF SPORT!!
