During tomorrow’s Parents’ Evening Mrs Maund will be available in the library to demonstrate how maths is delivered at QPA. Handouts will be available to show how we set out our calculations in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, as well as additional information about problem solving. Resources that are used with the children will also be available.
The Great Viking Bake Off was a huge success this afternoon. Many thanks for all of the support from the many parents that attended. Results to follow when we return from the half term break…
Congratulations to all of our sailors who achieved their level one sailing qualification from the Royal Yachting Association. Any Year 5 pupils wishing to take to the waters will be able to in the summer term!
Year 5 performed incredibly well in the Predator tournament today at Littledown. They navigated their way through 20 teams into the final, where they lost 2-0.
Year 5 had a wonderful trip to the Intech Science Centre yesterday, including a trip into the planetarium, as part of their ‘Stargazers’ topic.
Many thanks to all of our Year 6 pupils for their marvellous tours of the school during our open evening last night. We are very proud of you!
Year 3 had a superb music workshop today, themed around their mighty metals topic. Many thanks to Mrs Murray for leading the session.
Our maths displays have been updated to reflect the ‘Maths No Problem’ scheme being followed within lessons. There is a lot of emphasis on accurate use of mathematical vocabulary and of reasoning skills within maths, for example being able to show answers in several different ways.
Tomorrow night, Wednesday 18th October, from 6-7pm, our school will be open for any parents / carers of pupils currently in Year 2. There will be a brief talk about life at QPA followed by the opportunity to view classrooms and other facilities.
