We have been very fortunate to have coaches from Cheam Cricket Club providing after school cricket for children in Year 3 & 4. They are a local club and provide excellent sporting opportunities for all ages.
Last week, the Year 6 boys made their football debut in the Danone Cup, which is a 7-a-side tournament. Their opening game was against Devonshire Primary. It was a solid performance with goals from Zac and Kayden, resulting in a 2-0 win. The next game was tough. After going 1-0 against Cheam Common, the boys made a fantastic comeback to draw the game 1-1 – a vital goal from Zac. In their final game, it went down to the last minute. Brookfield’s defence was solid, but with a cruicial break-through from Daniel, Avenue won the game 1-0. Unfortunately, Avenue didn’t win their group – they came second on goal difference! However, the boys still progressed through to the finals as the ‘best runners-up’. A fantastic, undefeated start to the season, well done boys!
This year’s Year 5 and 6 football trials will be held on Friday 6th September. The children must ensure they have their full PE kit and trainers if they wish to take part. Shin pads and football boots are not required for the trials. Letters will be given out the following week to children who have gained a place in the club.
Good luck to all!
We are thrilled to have started the new academic year. We have got an amazing year of competitions, festivals and sports fixtures ahead.
Last week, some of our Year 5 and Year 6 girls competed in a cricket tournament. Both teams demonstrated fantastic teamwork and sportsmanship throughout the day.
Our Year 5 team unfortunately lost their group games, however they won their final play-off game. The girls thoroughly enjoyed their afternoon.
Our Year 6 team won all of their group games, thus progressing to the semi-final. It was a close game, but with some vital wickets and some much-needed boundaries (particularly 3 consecutive 6s from Sadhya), the girls won the game against Barrow Hedges by 7 runs!
The final was a tough game against a strong Westbourne side. Unfortunately, the girls were defeated. Everyone was incredibly proud to have reached the final. Well done girls!
Well done to all the children who represented Avenue at the dance festival last week. They performed a fabulous dance routine to the song: ‘You’re a Superstar’. The children impressed everybody watching with their great dance moves and self-confidence!
Last week, the boys played their final match of the season. It was a thrilling action-packed match, and the boys secured yet another win. They beat Dorchester 9-4 with goals from Kian, Kai, Max and Xavier.
A massive well done to every child who has represented the Boys’ A Team this year. It is a great achievement to have come second in the league; winning every game but one all season! We are immensely proud of every individual and their commitment to the school. You should all take pride in your achievements.
Unfortunately, we have recently had a number of sports kits that have been used for different sport fixtures and tournaments, but have not been returned.
If your child has represented Avenue for a sports team since September, please could you check at home for any unreturned t-shirts, shorts, coats or socks. This would be greatly appreciated.
A huge congratulations to the Year 6 Boys football team for reaching the final of the Sutton Schools FA Cup! They had a tough semi-final, where they met a very strong Cheam Park Farm side. It was a fantastic team effort and all the boys gave 100%. Two great goals from Charlie-Ray and Kian mean that the boys are through to the cup final, where they will face Cheam Common. Well done boys, we are proud of you!
