Last week the children learnt all about St George’s Day, the Queen and British Values. We finished this special week with a 90th birthday party for the Queen. All of the children made an English flag and were given party food which they ate out on the school field. After this the children played traditional British games such as duck duck goose, cricket and hopscotch. Everyone had an amazing afternoon – one that would have made the Queen proud!
On Friday the children spent a majority of the day raising money for both Sport Relief and our home charity Help for Heroes. They came to school dressed in sports gear and then performed in a number of sporting activities including a run and a circuit. As is normal the most fun event for the children was the ‘sponge the teacher’ activity but they also raised money in teacher friendly ways such as a cake and biscuit sale.
It was a great day all round and we managed to raise £1039.39 for our charities. Well done everyone.
Richard Avenue Primary was lucky enough to receive a book donation from a joint venture by First Class Supply and Seven Stories . The books where handed over by Lauren from First Class Supply and will take their place in the school library for children to rent and read.
Many thanks to both companies for their generous offer.
Players from the basketball team, Newcastle Eagles , visited Richard Avenue to help the school learn about health and fitness, through their Hoops 4 Health initiative. The children took part in a variety of activities, including basketball skills, that teach them how to stay fit and healthy.
The storyteller Ian Douglas came to visit our school to tell the children some stories as part of Writing Week 2016. He explained the traditions of story telling and the purpose of stories. In his opinion the best stories contained a mix of truth, meaning and morality.
Everyone really enjoyed his performance.
Both nursery groups, morning and afternoon held their yearly Christmas Nativity. The children, dressed up as the Christmas cast and led by Mr Williams and Mrs Atkinson sang a variety of Christmas classics. Below are two videos of their performances.
The children raised lots of money for Children in Need . To raise the money the children where able to wear non uniform, superhero and Pudsey Bear clothes. They also baked and sold cakes, bought tombola prizes, had a name the bear competition and lots more.
The school raised a massive £1,165.52 to help children in different situations.
Some of this money is also donated to our ‘Home Charity’, Help for Heroes . This helps wounded, injured or sick people in the armed services.
