This afternoon’s football matches resulted in a loss, a draw and a win against Park School. The Year Five boys played particularly well to win 7-2, as well as hitting the crossbar twice and the post once. Good sportsmanship was evident all round and the support on both sides was highly motivating!
Some Year Six pupils took part in a carousel of reading challenges related to their class text ‘Friend or Foe’ by Michael Morpurgo. Pupils are considering character, plot, retrieval of information and analysis of language.

Today’s assembly was about curiosity – one of our character traits. Mrs Williams shared how Captain James Cook showed curiosity when setting sail around the world, as well as discussing our thought of the week:
Yesterday evening QPA played against St Luke’s Primary at the David Lloyd centre. Our Year 6 team performed extremely well, Dylan scoring a hatrick and Reuben mastering the midfield, and the team achieved a 5-0 victory. The Year 4 team did not fair so well, losing 4-1, but showing great grit and inter-dependence throughout.
