We had glorious weather for Sports Day today and the children participated incredibly well throughout. We were all really pleased with the character shown by the pupils: grit, compassion, courage, optimism and trust. Congratulations to the Year 5 staff who won the staff race. We will find out which house won the overall competition in tomorrow’s assembly.
Sports Day is close upon us and will be held on the Bournemouth School fields (behind the David Lloyd Sports Centre) this Thursday, 15th June, with the first events scheduled for 10:00 and the final events due to finish at 12:30. The pupils will take part in a carousel of sporting activities and competitive track events, with all children participating. The PTA will have refreshments on sale and, with the weather predicted to be fair, children should have sun cream applied before coming to school and should bring a hat with them.
Good luck to all of our participants at Town Sports this afternoon. We’ll keep our fingers crossed that the rain stays away!
Our Year 3 children and children from Queen’s Park Infants showed excellent teamwork when they joined together to play football this afternoon. The mini-tournaments were a big success and it was great to see the younger pupils taking their first steps into our Academy ahead of next year’s move.
Children from different year groups went to Southbourne tennis club today, taking part in activities with children from other schools and specialist coaches.
This afternoon 30 Year Five pupils will travel to Rockley Park to start their sailing course. Inter-dependence will be required, as well as trust, optimism and grit.
The football match this afternoon ended in a 5-5 draw between QPA and Jewell Academy. The players supported each other incredibly well and a high level of sportsmanship was shown throughout. Well done to Max – man of the match.
