We have had the chance to participate in some fantastic sporting events recently such as the Sportsability Indoor Athletics and the Gateshead Schools Gymnastics Festival. Children from Year 4 and 5 participated in the Indoor Athletics Competition and placed 3rd overall!! Amazing work! Children in Year 3 & 4 participated in the Gymnastics Festival and delivered an amazing routine showing off their skills! Fantastic job everybody, we are so proud!
Friday 16th November was so amazing for all the children at Brighton Avenue Primary because we were visited by the very special Pudsey bear! He thanked everyone for donating money to Children In Need and loved hugging and dancing with everyone - including the staff! We even had lots of special Children In Need prizes (kindly donated by all the staff) that children, from every class, could win by having their name drawn out of the raffle tickets.
Please see 'Class Pages' for more photographs of everyone celebrating this special day.
On Friday afternoon, the whole school continued with their fine motor skill activities with a very special focus on Remembrance Day.
Miss Turner had explained Remembrance Day, during collective worship last week, and how it marks the day that World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918. Each class made a variety of poppies, in different media, having understood that the poppy was adopted as a symbol of Remembrance.
The whole school will pay our respect, with a two-minute silence, to the people who have died in wars on Monday at 11am.
Wow! We are so proud of all the children, staff, parents/carers in our amazing school and community for helping to raise money for our Macmillan coffee morning.
Can you believe we raised £705? Wow!
A BIG thank you all once again.
