The competition was as hot as the weather at this year’s tournament on Saturday, 8th September, but Avon House stuck at their task and performed creditably to draw two matches and run some very strong sides close in their other group games.
On 6th September Year 6 visited Docklands Sailing Centre. First we got changed into clothes that we didn’t mind getting wet then we got into life jackets. When we were all ready we split into two teams – one team were in the canoes and one team were in a boat called a kiwi. I was on the team who were in the canoes and it was lots of fun. First we did a few warm ups. We played a ball game and another game called ‘splat’ and then we got into pairs and stepped into a canoe. We had tons of fun with at least half the team falling into the water at the end. Next we all got changed into some warm clothes and had a very nice lunch.
