A day out at the Stadium of Light | February 14, 2022

The children with the players including Jermain Defoe.

Due to their sporting achievements and attitudes in PE last term, 12 children were selected for a special visit to watch the Sunderland vs Doncaster Rovers football match at the Stadium of Light.

Along with Mr Spoors and Miss Scott, the children had a visit around the stadium, played football in the Beacon of Light and even got a photo with some players, including Jermain Defoe.

The children had the amazing opportunity to go onto the pitch and wave the flags for when the players entered onto the pitch to start the game, in front of 38,000 people.

We had a wonderful match day experience, despite the result, and the staff at the Stadium praised their fantastic behaviour.

Sunderland Hockey Finals 2020

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.
