We enjoyed a fantastic World Book Day today. The children watched a theatrical production of The Jungle Book and carried out lots of fun-filled reading tasks through the day. Year 6 then had the opportunity this afternoon to take part in workshops with the theatre company to learn how productions are put together. We had a massive range of costumes throughout the school today – the children looked incredible. We would like to thank you for all of your support in making today such a special day.
Yesterday, QPA achieved huge success at the Ambitions Inter-Academy hockey tournament. The children were playing against Bayside, Manorside, Kinson and Elm in a Year 3 & 4 team and a Year 5 & 6 team. The Year 3 & 4 team drew one match and won 3 matches and the Year 5 & 6 team won all four matches. Mr Stroud was incredibly proud of all of the children for taking part and their team spirit throughout the tournament. Well done to both teams!
The Year 5 children arrived safely at Hooke Court yesterday and have been having a brilliant time. They have had a very muddy experience in WW1 trenches and enjoyed singing some songs from that era.
The Hooke Court staff have also commented on how well they have all eaten – the clearest plates of any school they have had!
All had a good nights sleep and are thoroughly enjoying the experience.
Today’s Drama Day went really well. The children used The Lion King as a basis for their activities and really threw themselves into their acting.
The children are continuing to have a wonderful time at PGL. Their strength of character has been clear to see throughout: inter-dependence, grit, compassion and courage!
