QPA Sports Day

Although our Sports Day this year is very different to what we had planned and hoped for, the children have thoroughly enjoyed competing in houses to earn house points and potentially the highly regarded House Cup.

A range of events were set up in the playground for the children to apply the different skills that they have learned throughout the year in P.E lessons.

All children participated showing respect and sportsmanship to one another. Well done to everyone for your enthusiasm and encouragement towards each other.

Keep an eye out on the blog as we will be posting all the results here.

Year 6 Victorian WOW Day

Year 6 have had a fabulous WOW day today immersing themselves in the Victorian era. The children blew us away with the effort that had gone into their Victorian costumes. We had suffragettes, chimney sweeps, maids, children from the work house and even masters and some ladies!

Throughout the day, the children completed a range of activities to develop their understanding of this very important time in British history. They created Queen Victoria pictures made up of facts about the time and traditional silhouette portraits. To end the day, the children watched a Hobgoblin performance of Workhouse Boy.

Year 6 WW2 Propaganda Posters

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 qpa@queenspark-academy.co.uk so that we can create a blog post with them and comment on your designs. We look forward to you sharing them with us!

dig for victory

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.

Year 6 Activity Week

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!
