The Year 5/6 Athletics Team
On 16th October 10 boys and 10 girls from Y5/6 represented Richard Avenue at the Sportshall Athletics competition at Biddick Academy.
They took part in a range of events such as long jump, sprint, relay, triple jump and javelin. Everyone in the team tried very hard at each event and some children were named as winners in their specific events.
Very well done to all involved.
The Y5/6 Rugby Champions

The children waiting to run.
All the children from Year 4,5 and 6 took part in the Go Run For Fun Event. They ran 2KM around Silksworth Sports Complex with hundreds of children from other schools. The event was great fun and taught the children that running short distances can be both fun and important in order to lead a healthy lifestyle.
The Year 5 and 6 Hockey Team in action.
On Thursday 20th March the Year 5/6 Hockey team took part in the Sunderland Finals.
The team played four games in their group. They won their first game 3 – 0, goals coming from Akib, Vishal and Tony. In the their next game the team lost 2-0. After drawing the following game we all knew the final game was a must win to make it through to the semi- finals. A close game saw us going behind until Vishal found an equaliser. Then with only 1 minute to go Richard Avenue got the winning goal with Tony striking a great hit. We had made it through to the Semi Finals.
Although we lost 2-0 in the Semi Final, the team should be proud of making the Semi Finals and the effort that they made. Well done all!

Derwent Hill 2018.
30 pupils from RAPS attended Derwent Hill and had a great learning experience amidst a significant Lakeland snowfall.

The pupils took part in the John Muir Discovery Award, and engaged in the 4 areas of Discover, Explore, Conserve and Share. John Muir was great environmentalist who had a love of wild places and introducing them to young people.
As part of their work some 800 trees were planted by pupils, under the direction of the Environment Agency.

The whole residential week proved to be a tremendous Outdoor Education learning experience in which pupils not only undertook adventurous activities, developed a deeper understanding of the environment, but also learnt a lot about themselves.

The children on Internet Safety Day 2018.
Today the school held their annual Safer Internet Day for 2018. Throughout the day the children learned how to respectfully use the internet and to think of others while doing so. The topic this year was ‘create, connect and share respect: a better internet starts with you’, and our topics were centered around that.
One of the interactive topics included the children making a connective jigsaw. They were asked to consider how as a person they could make the internet a more positive place. We received answers such as “don’t be disrespectful and say hurtful things if you cant say anything kind”. The children when then made to understand that if their own positivity was added to that of others then the internet will become a more positive place as a whole. The way a jigsaw comes together.
The children cut out their jigsaw pieces.

In other parts of the school the children watched a video where children in the video would send a text message and then our children were asked how they would respond to such a comment. We asked them to be honest and a lot of the children gave both positive responses and some gave negative ones. We then quizzed the children on why they had made the comments and to think how they might escalate or diffuse a situation with positivity.
The children also made posters about things they liked about school. The posters were then given to other children who would write comments about the poster on the back. They then went through the comments with their teacher to teach them how both positive and negative comments would make that person feel and how they could be more positive and constructive when commenting.

All in all a great day of learning and understanding that hopefully the children and the teachers can take forward in their online life.
Here are some more photos from the day.
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!
