Week Nine

Results for the last 2 weeks are as follows;

Birkdale Sunningdale Wentworth Turnberry
4-11-16 524 498 474 330
11-11-16 482 527 559 573

We have changed the way we inform the rest of the school about the results. Instead of announcing it in Assembly, the House captains visit the classes on Friday afternoon and tell each class what each house team got. There is a great buzz in school as they hurry around. So far every team has won at least once so there is a healthy rivalry!


ACE Houses 2016-17 – Meet the Captains

It’s been a busy half term at Allerton. The most significant thing that has happened for the Houses is that we have chosen our Captains. This took a little longer than usual, as there are quite a few shy and retiring types in Year 6 this year! Eventually eight Captains were picked, a boy and a girl for each House. You will find their beautifully hand-written pen portraits about themselves on the Houses display in the front corridor in school.

Sunningdale Captains – Sairah and Vishnu



Birkdale Captains – Harneeka and Bardia


Turnberry Captains – Kris and Ayesh


Wentworth Captains – Sian and Jai’von


Finally, a quick run-down of points earned so far. In the first half term, as there was a bit of a delay in choosing captains, points were only collected for the last few weeks. Total points for the half term are as follows : –

Birkdale – 2201

Wentworth – 2196

Turnberry – 1980

Sunningdale – 1865

Wentworth and Birkdale have both won twice, so the pressure’s on Turnberry and Sunningdale!

It’s been a 3-horse race so far

Welcome to our first blog about our House teams.

On Friday lunchtimes there is great excitement amongst the House captains as they work their way through school collecting house points and adding them up for their teams. They dash to reveal their score to me, anxiously glancing over their shoulders to check that their are no spies from the other teams! Scores have generally increased as the weeks have gone on, which is an indication of how prized a House Point is.

Then every Monday in Assembly we announce the winning team. So far last term, and this, it has been pretty much a three-horse race, with Wentworth and Turnberry leading the way, and Birkdale winning occasionally, so it’s just Sunningdale to get their first taste of glory!

The winning team celebrate with their team chant!

The cup is held for a week by a randomly selected member of the team. Names are put into a Virtual Hat on the screen and the computer selects one at random.

This week it was Birkdale at the top again again, and Joshua in Year 5 got to keep the cup in his classroom for the week.
