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!
A huge well done to the Year 6 Boys football team who are through to the semi-final of the ‘Sutton Schools FA Cup’ against Cheam Park Farm.
Well done boys!
Well done to the Y6 Netball Teams who played against Wallington last week. Both teams persevered with the A Team winning 6-1, and the B Team losing 8-0. Super effort girls!
After a long wait at the start of the season, the Year 5 football team turned up to Sutton United eager to start their cup competition. After a warm-up to brush away the cold, the boy’s started strongly and took a foot hold in the game and created numerous chances. Our set pieces caused the Westbourne defence numerous problems with Daniel delivering to Kayden at the back post hitting the cross bar 3 times. A brief chat at the half and a few changes did not impact the team’s performance and we continued to dominated going forward. A cross from another Daniel gave Zac a great chance but he narrowly missed with his weak foot. As the game seemed to be heading to extra time, Kayden picked the ball up at left back and beat 5 or 6 players before putting the ball between the keepers legs. In the final few moments, Westbourne put the defence under pressure and a few great tackles and strong defensive performances meant we held onto the clean sheet progressing to the next round after the Christmas break.
We took two teams to the Phoenix Centre to take part in a Futsal tournament. The ‘A’ team played 4 matches, they had mixed results, a 2-1 win, 5-1 defeat, 1-1 draw and 5-1 win. The children worked incredibly hard throughout the matches and had a very challenging group. Amazingly they took second place and were awarded with Silver medals.
The ‘B’ team also played 4 matches and had some fantastic outcomes, a 2-0 win, 3-0 win, 1-1 draw and a 1-0 win. The children worked incredibly hard to retain 3 clean sheets due to some fantastic goalkeeping from Maddalena. The ‘B’ team walked away as the champions of their group and won gold medals as a result.
A successful day of Futsal for children new to the sport. First and Second place is an excellent result. Well done to all the children who took part!
