Year 6 are currently learning about WW2. This week they have looked at different propaganda posters from WW2, thought about the messages that the government were trying to give the public and then created their own catchy slogans and posters.
We would love to see the posters that you have created at home Year 6. Please email a picture of your poster to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can create a blog post with them and comment on your designs. We look forward to you sharing them with us!
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!
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.
Year 6 sparked off their ‘Energy’ topic today with a variety of experiments, including creating electrical circuits.
With half the year group at PGL, the other half had a fantastic time taking part in activities at school as well as going on trips to Paultons Park, Mr Mulligans and Hollywood Bowl. Staff and pupils showed off their excellent bowling and golf skills whilst the big rides at Paultons Park were not for the faint-hearted!
The I-pad returned bursting with pictures!
The children are continuing to have a wonderful time at PGL. Their strength of character has been clear to see throughout: inter-dependence, grit, compassion and courage!
