Year 6 SATs

We are all so proud of our Year 6 pupils for their efforts in this week’s tests. Every child tried their hardest during every paper set, focussing throughout and demonstrating their courage, mindfulness and grit. Well done everyone!

Reading hunt

Some of our Year 6s spent their comprehension session outside, in order to complete a reading treasure hunt. They had to read and answer questions in a variety of areasĀ in order to gain clues. This really helped to sharpen their reading skills ahead of next week’s SATs testing.

Netball

The Year 6 netball teams had a friendly with Kinson Primary this week and performed extremely well to win both matches. Olivia, captain of one of the teams, stated, “It was great that we were all working together and I was pleased to score from a long way out.” Harrison added, “It was great that everyone was playing fairly and that we were evenly matched. It was a tough game!”

AFC Bournemouth visit

Our Year Six pupils were treated to an afternoon with members of the AFC Bournemouth community team today. Alongside some professional football coaching, the children learned about road safety, including a session inside a Yellow Bus for part of their afternoon. We even had a famous face from the Premier League team join us – can you spot them?

Netball team

QPA’s next Team Tagg adventure was an away game at Bethany school. Mr Petterfer loaded up the minibus as the sun shone and we were off. In an exciting, closely matched game, the super squad demonstrated their phenomenal inter-dependence once more. Half time saw a tight and tense scoreboard, 1-0 to QPA. After a further two quarters, with all manner of high quality passing, defending and leaping, victory was ours. The final score stood at 6-2. Well done Team Tagg!
