Sentence types

We teach a wide variety of sentence types at QPA. Here are some examples from Year 5. ‘MC’ stands for ‘Main Clause’, a clause that can stand alone and still make sense. ‘SC’ stands for ‘subordinate clause’, a clause that relies on a main clause for it to make sense. All clauses require a subject and a verb.

Quiet Area Opening

The quiet area is now officially open! Emma, our PTA chair, cut the ribbon in front of the school council, who designed the area, staff members who supported and James Stout, who built the furniture. We will be adding some sensory features to the area, as well as some reading books and quiet games. Many thanks to everyone who helped to make the transformation of this area happen, especially to Mrs Welch for her outstanding guidance of the school council and the PTA team.

Crazy Sock Day

There are lots of wacky and wonderful socks on display today at QPA. The reason behind these colourful items of clothing is that we are raising money for Mosaic, a charity to support Dorset children who have suffered bereavement in their lives.

 

Year 6 Football

Today the Year 6 boys took part in the Predator football tournament at the Littledown Centre. In total, 23 schools attended the competition. Although we didn’t progress to the semi finals, the level of effort and teamwork from the boys was outstanding. Most impressive was the maturity the boys showed. They shared captaincy, chose positions and took it in turns to be substitutes, all independently. Our goals were scored by ¬†Dylan and Darren. Next up is the league fixtures which will start in the next week or two.
