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.
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!
Well done to Sonny and Nancy for recreating their very own Greek Olympics this weekend. After a much battled afternoon of games, including basketball hoops, long jump, hopping races, it came down to a tie breaker of paper aeroplane throwing!
Well done to Sparta, aka Sonny, who won the tie breaker!
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.
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!
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!
Congratulations to Windsor who won this year’s Sports Day. Hanover came a close second, with Steward and Tudor in equal bronze position. Well done to all of our pupils for their enthusiasm and grit on the day. Enjoy the medals!
