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.

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!

As a parent here are two videos you can watch. One for foundation and KS1 children, and one for KS2 children:
