World ParaAthletics Championships London 2017

Today, the Year 5 & 6 Athletics Club went to the London Stadium to watch the World ParaAthletics Championships.

As soon as we got to the Olympic Park we saw Olivia Breen,  who won gold in T38 long jump yesterday! We were lucky to have a photo and a close look at her gold medal!

When we got into the stadium the atmosphere was amazing. Our seats were 6 rows back from the long jump and triple jump competition. We also got to see the world record for the discus!

It was a fantastic day and very inspiring to watch incredible athletes compete.

Avenue has been awarded the Youth Sport Trust GOLD Quality Mark for its commitment to physical education (PE) and school sport at their school.  The Youth Sport Trust is a national charity that is building a brighter future for young people through the power of sport.

The Quality Mark is an online self-review tool which provides schools with a nationally recognised award for the quality of their PE and school sport.  The tool supports schools to audit their PE provision and identify priorities for their development.

Schools are awarded Bronze, Silver and Gold status, which reflects their efforts in using PE and school sport to raise achievement across the school.  When a school is awarded the Gold Quality Mark, the Youth Sport Trust will visit the school and validate their self-review.

Mr Dann PE Leader, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have been awarded the GOLD Quality Mark from the Youth Sport Trust, which recognises our commitment to delivering the best possible sporting experiences for the young people at our school. It has been a real team effort from the PE Team and the whole school community.

“There are a whole range of educational, health and wellbeing benefits from delivering high quality PE and school sport, and we see on a regular basis that when it is delivered well it can transform the lives of all pupils.”

Ali Oliver, Chief Executive at the Youth Sport Trust, said: “Congratulations to Avenue Primary Academy for achieving the Youth Sport Trust GOLD Quality Mark. Schools which achieve the Quality Mark, share our belief in the value of high quality PE and sport and the positive impact it has on young people’s journey through education.

“PE and school sport helps young people to live healthy and active lives and through it, helps them achieve their personal best in school and life. We are delighted to be working with thousands of schools across the country that recognise the competitive advantage this gives to their pupils.”

Avenue pupils shine at Lords

Two of our Year 5 pupils, Nicola and Joseph got to play at Lords, the Home of Cricket this weekend! They played in the Gilbert Cup Final and did extremely well, narrowly losing by just 2 runs. Nicola, said ” It was so fun! We got to meet two amazing cricket players, Eoin Morgan and Kate Cross. There were lots of people in the crowd and we were on the main screen so everyone could see us!”

Well done guys!

District Sports – Track Competition

The Borough District Sports Track Competition at David Weir Centre on Tuesday 27th June was cancelled. After advice from the Met Office the organisers made the decision to cancel the event as heavy rain and thunder was predicted. They made the decision early so that schools could inform parents in plenty of time.

Unfortunately the event will not be rescheduled this year.
