Judo Taster Sessions!

Years 1-6 were lucky enough to receive some Judo taster sessions in school this week. We had lots of fun playing defense and attack games and also learning how to perform a Judo throw. Thank you very much to Destination Judo for two fun mornings, we loved trying something new!

World Number Day - Friday 1st February 2019.
Non-uniform day - thank you for the money we raised for the NSPCC last Friday! The children, from Nursery to Y6, had great fun celebrating numbers and maths in a variety of ways; outside building snowmen, counting the animals in twos onto the snow-covered ark, shape puzzles, bar modelling, mazes, reasoning, creating maths games and finally to the winners of, 'Who Wants To Be A Mathsionaire!!' Great fun while supporting a wonderful charity!
Thank you again, Mrs Kevan.

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.
