Aspirations Day 2019
Aspirations Day 2019.

On Friday 21st June we had an Aspirations Day in school.

Key Stage 2 spent the morning learning more about their future life when they leave our school. We had lots of visitors from a wide range of careers in to speak to us about their jobs. The visitors were engaging and interesting and the children learned lots! They also gave us excellent top tips to help us think about the behaviours and attitudes needed for success. The children also spoke to past pupils from Thornill School and a representative from the University of Sunderland about the next stages in their education. They also spoke to Connexions about preparing for their future.

Well-being Week 2019
The children doing MMA training.

During the 13th-14th of June the whole school had a focus upon Well-being. As a school we looked at the areas of Physical, Health and Mental Well-being.

A wide range of activities were planned for the children to teach them about these areas. We had many physical activities including: Trampolining, Basketball, Bench Ball, MMA and an assault course challenge for Early Years and KS1.

Well-being Week 2019
A cooking session.

Health Well-being was focused around cookery and how we eat delicious healthy food every day. Mental Well-being sessions were provided by the school nurse. Our art during the week focused upon how the children look after their own mental well-being.

Overall, the children had a fun filled days from which they have gained a better understanding of how important their Well-being is and how they can be responsible for ensuring their own levels of Well-being.

Safer Internet Day 2019 followup | February 14, 2019

On Tuesday 5th February, Richard Avenue celebrated Safer Internet Day 2019. The aim of Safer Internet Day is to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively.

This year we held individual lessons to both talk and demonstrate to the children how consent works in an online context.

We watched videos on the topics and then held question and answer sessions so the children could explore how to ask, give, and receive consent online. We finished off the sessions by asking the children to design posters and online chats that deal with the issues of consent.

Some of these posters and online chat designs are shown below:

On Tuesday 5th February, Richard Avenue will be celebrating Safer Internet Day 2019. The aim of Safer Internet Day is to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. 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 how consent works in an online context and will ask young people to explore how they ask, give, and receive consent online. This could be in their friendships or relationships, how they take and share images and videos or how they manage their privacy and data.

Here are some videos about the day aimed at different age groups:

Here is the campaign film for Safer Internet Day 2019 which we hope sums up clearly what the day is all about.
Zap and Zoom – A Space Race – film for 3-7 year olds.
Data Detective – film for 7-11 year olds.

Year 4 visit the National Glass Centre and St Peters Church | January 27, 2019

Year 4 went on a visit to the National Glass Centre and St Peter’s Church as part of their Art and RE work. The children are looking at Aspects of Sunderland in their art lessons so they walked to the Glass Centre to take in the sights and give them inspiration for their glass painting. The visit to St Peter’s Church allowed the children to look at the beautiful stained glass windows as well as seeing the part of the church that is still standing from Anglo-Saxon times over 1600 years ago.
