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.

The school were honored to be invited to a special event at the National Glass Centre to meet the Prime Minister and members of his cabinet.
A group of 30 Year 4 children visited on Friday 31st January to watch the amazing glass blowing demonstrations and also designed their own pieces of fused glass. During these activities, the children were joined by members of the government cabinet and some children got to work on their glass alongside Boris Johnson.
It was commented on how well behaved and knowledgeable the children were about Sunderland and its history from their recent visit to the Glass Center and St Peter’s Church. All of the children had a fantastic afternoon and, even if a little nervous at first, soon got in to their stride when talking to all of the guests.

The Children at Penshaw Monument.
Year 5 visited Herrington Country Park to look for physical and human features as part of our Geography topic. Filling in work sheets as they went, the children spotted such features as different types of trees, hill formations, and man made features, such as the skate park. They made map drawings from different vantage points, such as the viewing deck at the park.
Later that day they visited Penshaw Tea Rooms and had a hot chocolate to warm up, followed by a climb to the top of Penshaw Monument to see the amazing view.
