A dreary, damp afternoon did nothing to dampen the spirits of QPA’s High 5 Team Tagg. This, our second league match against Winton Primary, took place on Wednesday 6th February. After a brief warm up and tactical team talk, play began. QPA were spritely from the start, setting a fast pace from the onset, both teams scored in the first quarter. The second quarter was controlled by our excellent play, resulting in two goals from QPA.
Play in the third quarter was dominated by excellent defence from both teams – no goals were score by either team. We were two goals up going into the final quarter, nails were bitten and whistles were tooted. QPA went on to score a further goal with Winton adding one more to their score sheet too. The final score was 4-2 to QPA, another sterling performance from Team Tagg – well done one and all! We are immeasurably proud of your dedication and commitment. The next league game is scheduled for 27th February.
Report from Mrs Wallis
Yesterday it was the turn of the girls to take part in a tournament at Littledown. The team did very well, winning one match, drawing two and losing one. This placed them second in their group. Congratulations to all those who took part.
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!
This afternoon we were fortunate to have considerable success at the annual Town Sports event at King’s Park stadium. The children took part in a variety of events which included 60m, 75m, 150m, 600m, long jump and ball throw.
We were incredibly proud of each and every one of our children, who were a real credit to our academy. Of particular note were the successes of Ellie, who achieved a gold medal for the 600m event, and Frankie, who achieved a third place time in the 75m. This achievement means that these two children are now eligible for county events.
Queen’s Park Academy now have 8 Sports Ambassadors who make up the School Sports Council. They are responsible for helping to improve P.E. and sport at our academy.
Following a primary leadership day at Harewood Academy, children across all participating schools were tasked with the challenge of creating a project that would have a positive impact on the physical activity of children at school. The judges of this competition were so impressed with the ideas from Q.P.A. pupils that they were awarded a prize of £100 worth of sports equipment. We were one of only 5 schools (out of 25 entering) to be awarded a prize. This is a fantastic achievement that all those involved should be proud of.
This afternoon’s football matches resulted in a loss, a draw and a win against Park School. The Year Five boys played particularly well to win 7-2, as well as hitting the crossbar twice and the post once. Good sportsmanship was evident all round and the support on both sides was highly motivating!
Year 3 are progressing well in gymnastics. Alongside balance and physical dexterity, the pupils are also demonstrating inter-dependence by ‘spotting’ each other on equipment.
