Yesterday’s World Book Day celebrations went brilliantly. The theatre production and workshops were enjoyed by all and there was a superb range of costumes on show!
Yesterday evening, pupils from Kings’ Park Academy, Manorside Academy and QPA took part in an Ambitions Academies Trust inter-academy competition. The pupils played each other in netball and basketball, with all pupils showing inter-dependence, compassion and optimism within their play.
We are all ready for the rearranged World Book Day today! The theatre company are currently setting up and we are amazed at the range of characters on show.
The Sports Ambassadors started their leadership lunchtime activities today. This included lots of exciting games and activities for Years 3 and 4, that were completely led and run by the sports ambassadors. The children thoroughly enjoyed the games and the ambassadors demonstrated fantastic enthusiasm and outstanding leadership qualities. ‘Leadership lunchtime’ will take place every Monday, Wednesday and Friday lunchtime.
Year 3 had a super WOW day today about chocolate. They spent the day designing their own wrappers and sampling a whole range of different chocolate – perhaps their favourite activity! They were also able to improve their data handling skills in the I.T. suite.
QPA’s next Team Tagg adventure was an away game at Bethany school. Mr Petterfer loaded up the minibus as the sun shone and we were off. In an exciting, closely matched game, the super squad demonstrated their phenomenal inter-dependence once more. Half time saw a tight and tense scoreboard, 1-0 to QPA. After a further two quarters, with all manner of high quality passing, defending and leaping, victory was ours. The final score stood at 6-2. Well done Team Tagg!
