High 5 latest news – win against Winton!

A dreary, damp afternoon did nothing to dampen the spirits of QPA’s High 5 Team Tagg.  This, our second league match against Winton Primary, took place on Wednesday 6th February.  After a brief warm up and tactical team talk, play began.  QPA were spritely from the start, setting a fast pace from the onset, both teams scored in the first quarter. The second quarter was controlled by our excellent play, resulting in two goals from QPA.

Play in the third quarter was dominated by excellent defence from both teams – no goals were score by either team. We were two goals up going into the final quarter, nails were bitten and whistles were tooted.  QPA went on to score a further goal with Winton adding one more to their score sheet too.  The final score was 4-2 to QPA, another sterling performance from Team Tagg – well done one and all!  We are immeasurably proud of your dedication and commitment. The next league game is scheduled for 27th February.

Report from Mrs Wallis

NSPCC

Today we welcomed 4 staff from the NSPCC to our school. As well as leading a whole school assembly about staying safe, these volunteers also provided active workshops for our Year 5 and 6 pupils. All other pupils had a special session centred around ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe’ within their classes.

Our School Council had already agreed to set up and run a huge obstacle course for the children to be sponsored to complete. We’re happy to say that every child completed this course during the day so the children can start to claim their sponsorship money before handing it in to their class teacher. All proceeds go directly to the charity.

Parliamentary handout

Our pupils will receive a parliamentary guide this week. This booklet answers questions such as ‘What is the UK parliament?’, ‘What happens at an election?’ and ‘Why do we need laws?’, as well as providing a wealth of information about the democratic process.

One homework this week will centre around the information and activities within the booklet. We also have a special parliamentary visitor leading assembly next Tuesday on the subject of government.
