The Sports Visits Begin Again! | December 12, 2021

The year 5 and 6 boys athletics team.

Year 2 attended AAA Sport for a fun-filled morning of gymnastics. They took part in a carousel of activities including the vault, floor circuit, track circuit and some time on the trampolines. The children learned new skills and had a fantastic time, while being physical and active.

A team of boys and a team of girls represented the school at the Y5/6 Sportshall Athletics competition at Silksworth. They participated in a range of track and field events. All the children showed determination and teamwork to help Richard Avenue finish 4th place in the overall competition, including a 1st place finish for the boys team. When the results came through, some children also received medals for their individual achievements.

Well done to everyone!

Activity Week 2021 | July 14, 2021

This week at school, we have some amazing events going on. Everyone will be taking part in a variety of outdoor activities, as well as class-based well-being workshops and crafts. We thought it would be the perfect way to end what has been a very different, and challenging, school year and we hope that all year groups have the best time taking part in lots of new, exciting challenges.

Despite the typical British weather, we’ve been having a brilliant time and everyone has been getting themselves involved in everything!

Two teams from Richard Avenue entered the Y5/6 Sunderland Hockey Finals. Both teams played some excellent Hockey. They showed great skill and produced some brilliant team goals. In the end both teams won 2 matches and lost 1 in their group.

When the semi finals were drawn, the Richard Avenue teams were drawn to play each other. Not only would the winning team advance to the final, they would also progress to the Tyne and Wear Finals.

Team 1, with some fantastic goals by Mahian and Miguel, were the winners of the Semi Final match. Unfortunately they were beaten 1-0 in a tight final.

They will now represent our school and Sunderland in the Tyne and Wear Finals, where they will play the best teams from
Sunderland, Newcastle , South Tyneside, North Tyneside and Gateshead.
