Bronze Sports Ambassador Training

Today, Miss Tagg and Mrs Wallis took a super selection of ten Year 6 children to the Sports Ambassador Training Day at The Bournemouth Collegiate School. After parking the mini bus in the Deputy Head’s private parking space, we merrily made our way to the main hall for the day’s events.

The day was split into a variety of exciting workshops which focused on developing leadership skills, active communication games and encouraging physical pursuits for all abilities.

The children were phenomenal! We were so incredibly proud of their behaviour, interactions with other schools and enthusiastic participation in all aspects of the day- including the singing on the minibus!

Once back in school, the ambassadors are looking forward to embracing their roles with a range of new activities and responsibilities. More details to follow…

Year 6 Sports Ambassadors

QPA Sports Day

Although our Sports Day this year is very different to what we had planned and hoped for, the children have thoroughly enjoyed competing in houses to earn house points and potentially the highly regarded House Cup.

A range of events were set up in the playground for the children to apply the different skills that they have learned throughout the year in P.E lessons.

All children participated showing respect and sportsmanship to one another. Well done to everyone for your enthusiasm and encouragement towards each other.

Keep an eye out on the blog as we will be posting all the results here.

Sport Equipment Delivery

Mr Bayston has been busy… Today, we received an amazing selection of sports equipment.

All of this fantastic equipment has been purchased due to a grant that Mr Bayston successfully applied for. We are looking forward to using the equipment in our P.E lessons. Good work Mr Bayston!

An Unexpected Visitor!

On Friday afternoon, QPA had an unexpected visitor. This beautiful bird of prey, a Harris hawk called Toyah, decided to fly a little bit off course, landing in one of our playground trees. Thankfully, Mrs Tucker had her whistle to hand, successfully helping to reunite Toyah with her handler.

A Recreated Sports Day

Last week, a group of QPA children met (distantly) together to recreate sports day at Strouden Park. Erin, Billy, Lola and Phoebe from Year 5 and Tom from QPIA took part in egg and spoon races, running, hurdles, long jump, head balance and the ‘put-on-the-clothes’ obstacle race.

They all had a fantastic time and wanted to share with everyone their success!

Well done guys, it looks like a brilliant event!

Y6 Netball Team Tagg Triumph!

After winning all our games in this year’s league, Team Tagg secured themselves a place in the BSSA High 5 netball league semi finals, for the second year running.

As we strolled down the hill to the David English centre in the spring sunshine, we were reminded of why we are lucky enough to be working in education. Seven excited, enthusiastic and incredibly hard working young people could hardly contain their excitement!

We were drawn against St. Catherine’s and as play began we watched full of pride as the team worked tirelessly to secure a 7-2 victory.

We had made it to the finals …

Full of determination the team leapt into action against Park school. With Olympic style umpiring unfortunately we were unable to continue our winning streak. We do however feel truly victorious in our efforts and enthusiasm as the crowd demonstrated during the awards ceremony.

The team were also overwhelmed by the support we received from parents and colleagues, some on their day off with their mini cheerleaders and some no longer at QPA! Not forgetting our school mascot who also put in an appearance for the event!

Sports Relief 2020

Today the children have taken part in a range of sporting activities to raise money for Sports Relief 2020. The money will support people living incredibly tough lives in the UK and around the world. Year 6 Sports Ambassadors, Mrs Welch and Mr Stroud organised a carousel of sports activities ranging from the traditional egg and spoon race to hockey. The children thoroughly enjoyed there sessions and showed great sportsmanship.

Sports Day

The weather has been kind to us today and allowed for the full schedule of events to be held at our Sports Day. Everybody entered into the variety of events with enthusiasm and positivity: congratulations to all participants!
