This afternoon teams from Manorside, Elm, Kings’s Park and Queen’s Park academies took part in an Ambitions Academies Trust hockey tournament. Our teams performed very well, winning the majority of their matches, and excellent team work was evident from all.
The Year 6 netball teams had a friendly with Kinson Primary this week and performed extremely well to win both matches. Olivia, captain of one of the teams, stated, “It was great that we were all working together and I was pleased to score from a long way out.” Harrison added, “It was great that everyone was playing fairly and that we were evenly matched. It was a tough game!”
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!
