Yesterday evening, pupils from Kings’ Park Academy, Manorside Academy and QPA took part in an Ambitions Academies Trust inter-academy competition. The pupils played each other in netball and basketball, with all pupils showing inter-dependence, compassion and optimism within their play.
QPA’s next Team Tagg adventure was an away game at Bethany school. Mr Petterfer loaded up the minibus as the sun shone and we were off. In an exciting, closely matched game, the super squad demonstrated their phenomenal inter-dependence once more. Half time saw a tight and tense scoreboard, 1-0 to QPA. After a further two quarters, with all manner of high quality passing, defending and leaping, victory was ours. The final score stood at 6-2. Well done Team Tagg!
We have now launched our QPA Reading Bingo challenge. Pupils have to read one book from every category to win a special prize:
- Science Fiction and Fantasy
- Action and Adventure
Pupils in Years 3 and 5 have hundreds of new books in their year groups to enjoy. Years 4 and 6 will be visiting the library to select their choices in order to complete their cards. We are hugely grateful to the PTA for their huge donations towards this scheme – the buzz about reading at QPA is electrifying!
