Project Viking Long Ship

In Year 4, we are busy designing our own Viking long ships at home. We are paying close attention to the stern, the prow, the sail and the oars. When we have finished our work, we are going to post photos of it here so we can see what all our friends have been doing too.

I wonder what feedback we can give each other? Something we have done well? An area for improvement? The Year 4 teachers can’t wait to see what your Viking Long ships all look like!

World Book Day

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.

 

Writing

The corridors are full of amazing writing based around the topics that the children are studying. Beautiful handwriting, exciting language and exceptional accuracy!

Graduation

Last night’s postponed graduation was an overwhelming success. We were thrilled to see almost every graduate return to QPA to accept their scrolls and awards with such pride.

Thank you to all of our families for returning to make the event so special. Huge thanks must also go to Mrs Powell for her sterling work in feeding us all at the barbeque afterwards.

Summer Fair

Last Friday’s Summer Fair was fantastic! We had a huge number of people attending from our school community. The events held all went smoothly and allowed us to raise over ¬£3000 for the school. Many thanks to everyone for the support, particularly to our amazing PTA team who worked tirelessly to enable us to all have such a wonderful time!

Town Sports

Report from Mr Pettefer, Miss Tagg and Mrs Wallis:

The sun shone on the King’s Park stadium at this year’s Town Sports sporting extravaganza. Sixteen pupils were selected to represent QPA in five different disciplines.

Every single member of the team wore their new kit with pride (thank you to our two Year 6 pupils for your key-ring creating endeavours!) and took part fully in the day. From competing in their own events, to supporting their peers and celebrating each other’s successes, they were an absolute credit to the school.

Four of the team secured places in the finals and we came away with one bronze and two silver positions.

We are extremely proud of all the children!
