Year 3 Wow Day

Year 3 thoroughly enjoyed their Wow day today, linked to their topic ‘Burps, Bottoms and Bile’. The highlight was decorating their own vests to show the digestive system and then creating ‘poo’ in the classroom!

An Unexpected Visitor!

On Friday afternoon, QPA had an unexpected visitor. This beautiful bird of prey, a Harris hawk called Toyah, decided to fly a little bit off course, landing in one of our playground trees. Thankfully, Mrs Tucker had her whistle to hand, successfully helping to reunite Toyah with her handler.

Christmas at QPA

It has been quite the last day of term at QPA. We were greeted this morning with a terrific mess left by the QPA elves. The Year 3 and 4 corridor was a scene of chaos and then squeals of delight as the children arrived to discover what has occurred.

Henry the dog then donned his Christmas jumper on the gate to greet everyone early this morning and to wish everyone a very merry Christmas.

All at QPA wish you all a safe and happy Christmas and a lovely New Year.

A Recreated Sports Day

Last week, a group of QPA children met (distantly) together to recreate sports day at Strouden Park. Erin, Billy, Lola and Phoebe from Year 5 and Tom from QPIA took part in egg and spoon races, running, hurdles, long jump, head balance and the ‘put-on-the-clothes’ obstacle race.

They all had a fantastic time and wanted to share with everyone their success!

Well done guys, it looks like a brilliant event!
