Our Sunderland Hoops4Health winners 2018 with the Eagles.
On Friday 2nd February Richard Avenue went to Northumbria University to take part in the Sunderland Hoops for Health Finals. Mrs Todd, Mr Spoors, Mr Old and the basketball team were very excited about watching the Newcastle Eagles game but even more excited about watching Richard Avenue on the court.
The team played before the game and then made it through to the final at half time in front of the many supporters in the stands.
On Thursday 20th March the Year 5/6 Hockey team took part in the Sunderland Finals.
The team played four games in their group. They won their first game 3 – 0, goals coming from Akib, Vishal and Tony. In the their next game the team lost 2-0. After drawing the following game we all knew the final game was a must win to make it through to the semi- finals. A close game saw us going behind until Vishal found an equaliser. Then with only 1 minute to go Richard Avenue got the winning goal with Tony striking a great hit. We had made it through to the Semi Finals.
Although we lost 2-0 in the Semi Final, the team should be proud of making the Semi Finals and the effort that they made. Well done all!
Year 3 had professional Tennis coaching for a whole half term. Amy Hoburn who is based at David Lloyd came into school to teach the children new tennis skills. She introduced the children to the different shots and also began working with tennis nets to encourage and develop match skills.
The children were very lucky to go to David Lloyd Sunderland to experience the tennis courts and equipment they have. The children showed great enthusiasm on making the most of the bigger space, the extra coaches and the fantastic resources on offer.
The hall was massive and we could run around more and faster. I liked playing on a net with my partner and hitting the ball over. Amy showed me how to do a backhand shot with 2 hands which I can do now.
From these lesson we have decided upon a Year 3 Tennis Team who will represent the school at the Tennis Tournament later in the year.
On Wednesday 24th January 2018, Richard Avenue entered the Hoops for Health Sunderland First round. Players from Newcastle Eagles had been into school to train Year 5, and four teams were selected to enter the tournament.
All four teams performed very well and won a number of games. Team 1 made it into one of the finals and ended up winning their game and so will go onto represent Richard Avenue at the Sunderland Finals at Northumbria University.
On Monday 20th November the Year 4 Hockey team entered the Sunderland Hockey Finals at Raich Carter.
The team were put into group 2 against three other schools. The team went on to win their first game 2-0 with goals form Adam and Asif. Their next game they won 4-1, goals coming from Adam (2), Isabelle and Mahian.
The final game in the group ended as a 1-1 draw with Haydon getting an equaliser. They finished the group as winners and went through to the semi-final.
The semi-final was a very close game with no goals by full time so it needed a sudden death period to decide the winner. In the end Adam came up with the golden goal that sent us through to the final.
The final was another close game with Richard Avenue narrowly losing 2-1, but runners up was a great achievement and the team felt proud of their performance. Well done all!
Year 5 visited Sunderland University’s climbing wall as part of Wellbeing Week and all of the children had the opportunity to challenge themselves to reach the top of the wall. Everyone had an amazing time and used the university sporting facilities afterwards.
Year 4 attended a Well-being Festival at Silksworth Leisure Centre. Below is an account of the day by one of the attending pupils and an accompanying video slideshow:
On Thursday 5th October Year 4 went to Silksworth Leisure centre for a Well-Being festival. We went there to learn about keeping fit and exercising. We took part in Brazilian soccer, yoga, skipping (in which I got tangled), dancing and dodgeball. The other group got to make smoothies using power from an exercise bike. We also got to do a kickabout with Sunderland AFC and learn new skills. We were only there for the morning but it felt like all day because we were so worn out from the exercising.
