World Thinking Day and Founders Day

Thursday 22nd February 2024

Thursday 22nd February, is the annual Thinking Daywhere all members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts are encouraged to celebrate, reflect on and renew the promise that they make shortly after joining.


This means that any child who attends a Girlguiding Rainbow, Brownie or Guide unit is invited to wear their uniform to school on that day should they wish to. 

 

Thursday 22nd February is also Founders day for the Scouting movement and any child who attends Beavers, Cubs or Scouts is invited to wear their uniform to school on that day should they wish to. 

 

Children’s Mental Health Week

 

This week, the children have enjoyed celebrating children's mental health week. The theme for this year has been 'My Voice Matters'. The children enjoyed sharing their likes and dislikes and came up with their dream day. We reminded the children to use our pupil voice groups, like the School Council, to ensure that their voices are listened to at school. 

Young Artists' Summer Show

The Young Artists’ Summer Show is a wonderful opportunity for UK-based artists and schools to engage creatively in the making and sharing of a piece of artwork that truly expresses their own voice. 

 

For a chance to exhibit your work at the Royal Academy of Arts both online and onsite, please read the follow guidance and attachments.  

 

There is no theme and artists aged 4-19 can submit a wide range of works which may include drawing, painting, printing, photography, sculpture, textile, fashion, animation, video, or surprise us!

 

You are required to complete the permissions form which must be attached for us to be able to submit your child's work. 

 

The art work must be completed independently by your child. 

 

Each submission can include a short artist statement ideally by the child. 

 

Please can all art works, that wish to be submitted, be returned to the school office by  Wednesday 20th March. 

 

Happy Creating!

To Parents and Carers,

 

We have become aware of a large number of children wearing scarves during the Winter months. Unfortunately these pose a safety risk to our children - a choking risk-  and therefore we will not be allowing children to wear these to school. Coats can be zipped up fully to keep children warm. 

 

We hope that you understand why this has been necessary and support the School to keep our children safe.

 

Many thanks, 

Miss Guy 

Red Nose Day: Friday 15th March 2024

The children are invited to wear their usual school uniform, and a red accessory, for a voluntary donation of £1

 

The accessory could be for example a hair accessory, or a red t-shirt, or red socks, or a red hoodie etc - just anything they may have at home, there is no pressure to buy anything new!

 

Children can also wear red noses if they have them. 

 

We encourage you to make your donations via the schools Just Giving Page:

Red Nose Day - Avenue Primary Academy

 

If you would prefer to donate cash, there will be buckets on the gates at drop off and pick up. (Teachers will not be collecting money).

 

Thank you for your continued support.

World Mental Health Day

 

Today, we have celebrated World Mental Health Day. The theme of the day has been 'Mental Health is a universal right' and the children have completed a range of activities to help them to understand this. We focused on the idea of being kind, not only to others, but to yourself too. 

 

The children played kindness bingo throughout the day which included things such as 'say hello to someone new' and 'write down 3 things you love about you.' All of the children finished the day by writing themselves a kindness postcard, remembering a time where they had done something great.
