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.

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!

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!
