The Children begin the Wildflower Meadow Dig | March 27, 2018

As part of the Lost Landscapes and Learning initiative, a wildflower meadow is being created within the school grounds.

Today the children with volunteers began to dig out the turf and shape what will become our new wildflower meadow. Everyone worked really hard to create what will be both a educational space and a wildlife area for both flowers and the creatures they attract.

The next step will be the sowing of the seeds which should take place after we return from our Easter break.

Reception visited the Silksworth Community Pool, Tennis & Wellness Centre as a link to their Healthy Living Topic. They learnt new ball skills and began to use a tennis racquet. They also had fun on the soft play.

For lunch they all took Healthy packed lunches and were able to eat them with their friends.

The children then visited Sainsbury’s and took their shopping list to buy fruit. Using the fruit they bought they made a fruit salad in school.

Safer Internet Day 2018 | January 22, 2018

Safer Internet Day 2018

On Tuesday 6th February 2018, Richard Avenue Primary school will be celebrating Safer Internet Day 2018. The slogan this year is “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you” and throughout the Day we will be holding a number of activities, including a whole school assembly and individual lessons to both talk and demonstrate to the children about how to stay safe online. The Day is part of a nationwide event to make children aware.

The following information comes from the UK Safer Internet Centre:

What is Safer Internet Day?

Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people and inspire a national conversation.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.

Globally, Safer Internet Day is celebrated in over a hundred countries, coordinated by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, and national Safer Internet Centres across Europe.

The day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet. Get involved to play your part!

Harvest Festival | October 8, 2017

The children with their harvest collection.

The school have been celebrating Harvest. Mr Hawkins, a representative from Elim Church came to visit us to share a story from the bible. The story told was “The Five Loaves and Two Fishes”. It reminded us how we need to share and think of others in times of need.

It is nice to help people and share our food… It is important for people to help each other. We help a lot at our school. It makes you feel good.

Kane, Year 5 pupil

The school presented the church with a huge donation of groceries for their food bank, this was thanks to the generosity of our pupils, parents and staff. Mr Hawkins and Elim church were so grateful that he presented us with a special certificate to say thank you.
