Our amazing cook Joyce is leaving us after 25 years of work here at Richard Avenue Primary School. We wish her a happy retirement and many many thank yous.
A video from us to Joyce.
Circumstances have been a little different for the year 6 leaver’s production this year so we have had a go at some film making. We discovered a lot of acting talent that we were unaware of and there are some award winning performances from the children.
They had a great time making the film and learning new skills and with the technical wizardry of Mr Williams we have a film.
We hope you enjoy watching it as much as the children enjoyed making it. They were truly creative.

This week at school, we have some amazing events going on. Everyone will be taking part in a variety of outdoor activities, as well as class-based well-being workshops and crafts. We thought it would be the perfect way to end what has been a very different, and challenging, school year and we hope that all year groups have the best time taking part in lots of new, exciting challenges.
Despite the typical British weather, we’ve been having a brilliant time and everyone has been getting themselves involved in everything!

With May half term just around the corner all of our thoughts turn to the same thing – how will I keep the kids entertained?
Active Sunderland and partners are coming to the rescue with its School Holiday Club.
They’ve got lots of ideas to keep everyone busy including arts, crafts, recipes, challenges and more including the return of football, tennis and golf.

On Friday 7th May, the whole school took part in our own Race for Life to support Cancer Research UK . Everyone did so well, receiving a medal and a certificate for taking part. The best bit is that, in total, we raised £839 for Cancer Research!
Well done to everyone and thank you so much for all the kind donations!
