QPA Sports Day

Although our Sports Day this year is very different to what we had planned and hoped for, the children have thoroughly enjoyed competing in houses to earn house points and potentially the highly regarded House Cup.

A range of events were set up in the playground for the children to apply the different skills that they have learned throughout the year in P.E lessons.

All children participated showing respect and sportsmanship to one another. Well done to everyone for your enthusiasm and encouragement towards each other.

Keep an eye out on the blog as we will be posting all the results here.

Sport Equipment Delivery

Mr Bayston has been busy… Today, we received an amazing selection of sports equipment.

All of this fantastic equipment has been purchased due to a grant that Mr Bayston successfully applied for. We are looking forward to using the equipment in our P.E lessons. Good work Mr Bayston!

The Book Fairies Strike Again

Today, we had a lovely surprise delivery from The Book Fairies. We now have a copy of the ‘Shoe Wars’ by Liz Pichon to add to our library collection for the children to enjoy. Thank you so much to our book fairy!

Read the blurb and see whether you might like to read it…

Y6 Topic

Some great learning experiences have been taking place in Year 6 this week. Pupils have designed and made lighthouses as part of their Design and Technology. In Science, pupils have dissected owl pellets as part of their ‘Darwin’s Delights’ topic. They have looked at owl adaptations and identified prey that the owls may have eaten.

Year 6 Victorian WOW Day

Year 6 have had a fabulous WOW day today immersing themselves in the Victorian era. The children blew us away with the effort that had gone into their Victorian costumes. We had suffragettes, chimney sweeps, maids, children from the work house and even masters and some ladies!

Throughout the day, the children completed a range of activities to develop their understanding of this very important time in British history. They created Queen Victoria pictures made up of facts about the time and traditional silhouette portraits. To end the day, the children watched a Hobgoblin performance of Workhouse Boy.

Year 4 Topic

Year 4 have produced some fantastic work linked to their topic, ‘Tremors.’ They have produced some beautiful collages using vibrant colours, in the style of Andy Warhol. The have also learned about fossil formation and different types of rocks in their Science lessons.

Reading Recommendations

This week’s Celebration assembly was the first time we shared some of our book recommendations. Mrs Rowe recommends Harry Potter and Mrs Williams recommends Jack Stalwart: Secret Agent. We also have recommendations from Megan in Y6 and Farshtia in Y5:

The Heeby Jeeby by Adam

Today, one of our Year 3 children shared an amazing story that they had written at home. He was thrilled at the prospect of being an author for his very own book. Look at the great vocabulary choices that he has used in his very amusing first ever book! Well done Adam.

Here is a snippet of Adam’s story

Chapter 1

“Hello Cookie,” I said. I stroked her and then I thought I was in another planet (it was actually the attic). “It’s so dusty in here.”

Chapter 2

When I found an exit, I saw a sign that said, “Beware! Danger approaching.” Suddenly, a crocodile snapped at my leg and lured me into a weird room with a lot of stuff in it (the garage).
