Curriculum Feedback

This afternoon Mr Vernon held group discussions with children from every year group to gain feedback on the topics that have been taught this half term. As well as every topic receiving 4 or 5 out of 5 stars, the wealth of knowledge that the children have learned is phenomenal. It was also really interesting to see where the children want to take their learning within future topics.

Assembly

JR

Today’s assembly told the story of Jackie Robinson, the first African American to play in Major League Baseball in the modern era. We learned about the self-control and grit that Mr Robinson showed throughout his life, especially when facing a constant stream of racism against him. This was an excellent opportunity to remind our pupils about the core British value of equality in all areas of life, as well as about justice and fairness for all.

‘It is not necessary to react to everything you notice.’

High 5 latest news – win against Winton!

A dreary, damp afternoon did nothing to dampen the spirits of QPA’s High 5 Team Tagg.  This, our second league match against Winton Primary, took place on Wednesday 6th February.  After a brief warm up and tactical team talk, play began.  QPA were spritely from the start, setting a fast pace from the onset, both teams scored in the first quarter. The second quarter was controlled by our excellent play, resulting in two goals from QPA.

Play in the third quarter was dominated by excellent defence from both teams – no goals were score by either team. We were two goals up going into the final quarter, nails were bitten and whistles were tooted.  QPA went on to score a further goal with Winton adding one more to their score sheet too.  The final score was 4-2 to QPA, another sterling performance from Team Tagg – well done one and all!  We are immeasurably proud of your dedication and commitment. The next league game is scheduled for 27th February.
