Safer Internet Day 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:

Romans in History

Year 3 have been learning about the Romans in History. They read a poem to learn about the story of Boudicca and her battle with the Roman army. As a class, they then decided to act out the story. Here is their final video, enjoy!

Aspirations Day 2017

Aspirations Day 2017.

On Friday 16th 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. A lot were parents, many of whom had attended Richard Avenue Primary as a pupil. The visitors were engaging and interesting and the children learned a lot. They shared with the children some excellent tips to help them think about the behavior and attitude needed for success. The children also spoke to past pupils from Thornill School and people from the University of Sunderland about the next stages in their education.

I discovered how many jobs were available and if you try your best you can achieve anything!

Key Stage 1 and Foundation Stage were visited by ‘People Who Help Us’ and had a great afternoon speaking to our visitors. A huge thank you to all of the visitors, that gave up their time, to come and help us think about our futures!

Tennis Success for Years 3 and 4

Year 3 and 4 have been competing in the Sunderland Tennis Finals. Year 3 played very well winning most of their games and showing some great skills which allowed them to top their group and make the final against East Herrington School. Each child played one more match against an opponent from East Herrington. Winning these individual matches, Richard Avenue Primary was named the winners and the children received gold medals.

Year 4 played against the 11 other schools who had won their cluster groups. After playing lots of tennis games and taking part in the skills station, Richard Avenue Primary won their group by over 100 points which took them into the final. After a close match they finished as runners up and received silver medals and with that they now get entered into the Tyne and Wear finals.

Well done to all children involved.

Some Sports Updates

The football team

The Year 6 football team played in a 6 aside tournament at Silksworth. While there the team played brilliantly and football being football, won some and lost some.

The Year 5 basketball team went to the Hoops 4 Health Sunderland finals. This followed on from coaching given to them by Newcastle Eagles. They didn’t win the finals but put up a remarkable account of themselves being 5 foot underdogs.

I think is one of the best places to buy this drug, but it’s also important that your doctor tells you what exact dosage you need. Especially if you have bronchial asthma, and the spasms are recurring, as a doctor I would not recommend to choose your dosage on your own.

And finally, six children from Years 3 and 4 went to Raich Carter Centre for the Sunderland hockey finals. The team played 5 matches and won 3, eventually coming runners up in their group.

A great effort by everyone. Well done!
