There are lots of signs of new life in the QPA garden! Mrs Moore and Mrs Robertson are hard at work with their teams growing both flowers and vegetables. Edible produce will be making its way to the kitchen for Mrs Powell to use during cookery classes, once ready. The new shed is also now being used every day – our thanks go to our wonderful PTA for their financial support to enable its purchase.
The hampers have now been prepared and are ready for Monday’s draws. It is not too late to get your tickets to win! Many thanks to the PTA for their creativity and time and to all of our school community for their support.
We have now launched our QPA Reading Bingo challenge. Pupils have to read one book from every category to win a special prize:
- Science Fiction and Fantasy
- Action and Adventure
Pupils in Years 3 and 5 have hundreds of new books in their year groups to enjoy. Years 4 and 6 will be visiting the library to select their choices in order to complete their cards. We are hugely grateful to the PTA for their huge donations towards this scheme – the buzz about reading at QPA is electrifying!
The Christmas hampers have been created and look great! Many thanks to everyone for their kind donations and to the PTA for their hard work to prepare these amazing prizes. The draws for each class will be held on Monday.
This Friday, 8th December, the pupils are invited to wear their own clothes in return for bringing in a donation towards a class Christmas hamper. Information about the relevant item to bring in has been distributed, but please seek clarification from your child’s class teacher should it be required. The raffle draws for the hampers will follow next week.
On Monday 11th December the school council have set up a Christmas jumper day. In return for a £1 donation, pupils can wear a Christmas jumper over the top of their normal uniform. The money raised will be donated to Save The Children.
The Christmas Fayre will be held at QPA on Saturday 9th December, from 11am – 2pm. There will be plenty to do for all of the family, and some amazing prizes to win in the raffle: a scooter, pantomime tickets, vouchers and a bike to name but a few!
The quiet area is now officially open! Emma, our PTA chair, cut the ribbon in front of the school council, who designed the area, staff members who supported and James Stout, who built the furniture. We will be adding some sensory features to the area, as well as some reading books and quiet games. Many thanks to everyone who helped to make the transformation of this area happen, especially to Mrs Welch for her outstanding guidance of the school council and the PTA team.
