Great Active Sunderland School Charter 2017 - 2018

 We are delighted that for the second year running the pupils at Rickleton Primary School have been successful in achieving the Gold Award for the Great Active Sunderland School Charter! This fantastic achievement acknowledges the hard work everyone does in ensuring that all members of the school community are as fit, healthy and active as possible.


Santa's Reindeer!

We were very lucky because one of Santa's reindeer came to visit us on Friday!  Before the Christmas Fair began, pupils in KS1 were lucky enough to spend some time with the reindeer.  The children learnt all about the special guest, including where reindeer live, what they eat and how they keep warm.  Our visitors were very impressed with the questions our pupils were asking.


Our Christmas Fair


We are delighted at the success of our Christmas Fair which took place on Friday 15th December.  It was thoroughly enjoyed by all who came.  FORPS would like to thank everyone for the support.  Please see below for winners of various prizes:

Big Sing


Year 5 pupils from our school will be taking part in their first singing practice for the Sunderland Big Sing project. The Sunderland Big Sing will see pupils from across Sunderland gather together to sing the Tall Ships into port on July 11th.


In celebration of the Tall Ships arriving, the Sunderland Big Sing for 20 schools will be live streamed from one of the Tall Ships performance stages, so every pupil from Sunderland can join in from the classroom. The aim is to break a world record of having the most children singing the same song at the same time.

Christmas Fair


Harvest Festival

The whole school celebrated Harvest at The House of Destiny Chapel.  Each year group shared songs and poems which they had written about Harvest.  In addition, the children were told the story of Harvest and why we celebrate this time of year.  The church was delighted with the amount of food which was kindly donated by the school.
