Congratulations to the boys who represented the school in the Year 6 league last week. After a nervy first half that finished 1-1, the boys started to play with tempo and put the other team under pressure eventually winning 3-1. Well done all.
Goalscorers: Charlie-Ray, Xavier and Jason
Well done to the 9 girls who represented the school the the league match against Westbourne. The win for Avenue has continued our winning run in the league, which we hope to keep all season! Westbourne put up a good fight, with them being our hardest opposition yet. At half time we were 2-0 up, but we knew we needed more goals to confidently take the match. We dug deep and battled hard with our efforts being rewarded with a 5-1 win.
Well done to all the girls who took part!

Well done to the 10 boys who represented the school in the Year 5 Cup last week. We were 2-0 up at half time and the second half was a back and forth affair. With 5 minutes left to play we were 6-2 up but tiredness started to take over. We managed to hang on by our finger tips with a final score of 6-5 to make it through to the next round!
Goals: Xavier x 2, Charlie-Ray x 2, Max and Ebben

This can vary from bouncing on a trampoline in the garden to training with your swimming team. Each week we will be supplying a range of different activities you can undertake to help keep you and your children active at home, in the garden or even in the local community.
