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.
Today our Year 5s attended the Bournemouth Primary Leadership Academy event held at Harewood College. This was a fantastic event that the children thoroughly enjoyed. The day involved lots of team games, workshops on what makes a good leader and also ways to improve sport at QPA. The children will now act as Sports Ambassadors for Queen’s Park Academy. This will involve coming up with new ideas and initiatives to encourage more children to participate in more physical activity.
Today the Year 6 boys took part in the Predator football tournament at the Littledown Centre. In total, 23 schools attended the competition. Although we didn’t progress to the semi finals, the level of effort and teamwork from the boys was outstanding. Most impressive was the maturity the boys showed. They shared captaincy, chose positions and took it in turns to be substitutes, all independently. Our goals were scored by Dylan and Darren. Next up is the league fixtures which will start in the next week or two.
Congratulations to Windsor for winning Sports Day! Hanover were second with Tudor and Stewart third and fourth. Wear your medals with pride everyone!
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.
