Year 6 Football Tournament

Year 6 represented the school with pride during the ‘Predator’ tournament at Littledown. Their teamwork was excellent and resulted in some extremely attractive football. Mr Pettefer was impressed with how the pupils organised themselves, including tactics and substitutions, having learned from the guidance he had previously provided. Although ultimately the team did not qualify for the final, they won one game, drew two and lost one. The leagues begins soon and this was a great reintroduction to competitive sport for the team.

 

Thought of the week

This week’s thought is about character. Today’s assembly centred around the QPA Character Award, detailing not only the importance of having a strong character but also the practicality of how the scheme works at school. The children were also introduced to Bethany Hamilton, an inspiring surfer who has continued to excel in the sport despite losing an arm in a shark attack when aged 13.

Awards

Congratulations to all of our end of year award winners. These accolades were achieved by pupils identified as making outstanding progress in academic subjects and sports as well as for demonstrating strength of character throughout school life.

PGL

All the pupils who went to PGL last week had a fantastic time and demonstrated positive characteristics throughout: interdependence, trust, courage, compassion and grit, to name but a few.
