The Queen’s Hills swimming team swam at the UEA Interschools Gala last Thursday. They all swam brilliantly, winning many of their races. Of all the schools that competed, we were placed third, which is a huge achievement for our first major gala. A big well done to you all. We are very proud of you.
Well done to the Y3/4 children who attended the World Cup themed football event today at the Nest.
This week, some of the girls’ in year 3/4 and 6 got to take part in a football competition. The girls’ played very well with the two teams scoring lots of goals and showing great teamwork. They all had a fantastic time and represented Queen’s Hill very well.
Y5 had a great day celebrating Black History Month. We learnt about the Windrush Generation and what it was like for people at this time, who travelled over to the UK. We read our class reader ‘Windrush Child’ by Benjamin Zephaniah, which the children have been enjoying already this half term. We researched and learnt about the Caribbean carnival, Notting Hill. We got to design and make our own carnival masks and we were lucky enough to go and model these for our Year 2 buddies class, Les Grenouilles. If that wasn’t enough we were lucky to take part in an African Dance workshop and watch them perform at the end of the day.
Some of the Year 3 and 4 children took part in a football session this afternoon. It was great to see their teamwork skills develop and their positive attitude towards helping and supporting each other.
Y5 were given the opportunity yesterday to take part in Roundnet taster sessions run by Zero Bounds. The children and teachers absolutely loved the game! It was simple to play and inclusive for all but it was an incredible workout with its fast paced gameplay.
