Year 1 on their trip to Durham Castle.
Year one visited Durham Castle on the 16th May (1CW) and Tuesday 17th May (1S). They all had a great time exploring the castle and finding out about its features. Some of the children dressed up as the kings and bishops connected to the castle history. In the afternoon the children made their own cardboard models of castles and were challenged to make a strong castle wall that the teachers tried to knock it down!
A fun and educational day out.
The year 5 and 6 boys athletics team.
Year 2 attended AAA Sport for a fun-filled morning of gymnastics. They took part in a carousel of activities including the vault, floor circuit, track circuit and some time on the trampolines. The children learned new skills and had a fantastic time, while being physical and active.

A team of boys and a team of girls represented the school at the Y5/6 Sportshall Athletics competition at Silksworth. They participated in a range of track and field events. All the children showed determination and teamwork to help Richard Avenue finish 4th place in the overall competition, including a 1st place finish for the boys team. When the results came through, some children also received medals for their individual achievements.
Well done to everyone!
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!

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!
