This afternoon we were fortunate to have considerable success at the annual Town Sports event at King’s Park stadium. The children took part in a variety of events which included 60m, 75m, 150m, 600m, long jump and ball throw.
We were incredibly proud of each and every one of our children, who were a real credit to our academy. Of particular note were the successes of Ellie, who achieved a gold medal for the 600m event, and Frankie, who achieved a third place time in the 75m. This achievement means that these two children are now eligible for county events.
Year 4 had a super residential this week to Carey Camp. They took part in a wide variety of activities, including shelter building, ropes courses, archery, orienteering and tunnelling. They also learned how to sleep and eat outside! Many thanks to the staff for their positivity and dedication throughout the trip and to all of our pupils for their adaptability, optimism, inter-dependence and courage.
We are all so proud of our Year 6 pupils for their efforts in this week’s tests. Every child tried their hardest during every paper set, focussing throughout and demonstrating their courage, mindfulness and grit. Well done everyone!
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.
Today’s Year 3 WOW day went extremely well. The pupils learned a lot about life in Celtic and Roman Britain, culminating in the re-enactment of a story from the period. We had an impressive range of costumes and outfits on show. One even contained the Latin translation of ‘High Expectations Lead to High Achievers’!
The Year 3 team are ready for their WOW day!
We are really looking forward to being joined in September by pupils from Year 2. To support this transition we have arranged several events, beginning with a joint sports session this week.
Children from Year 3 and Year 2 pupils from Queen’s Park Infant Academy worked exceedingly well together and it was great to start to get to know our future pupils!
