Every month a star writer will be chosen. Each teacher will choose the best piece of independent writing from their class. Miss Wilson will then judge which should be the star writer from the following criteria;
- Handwriting and presentation
- Grammar and sentence structure
- Use of text features
The star writer from each year group will receive a star writer pen and certificate.
They will also have their work displayed in the school and put here on the website. All children who are nominated will receive a letter from Miss Wilson.
Times Table Champions
Each week the children are invited to achieve awards linked to the times tables. Children give up 5 minutes of their lunchtime to attempt to answer times table questions. Children can earn Bronze, Silver and Gold pin badges for learning the times tables up to 12x12.
If the children receive their gold award they can move onto the platinum award. This encourages the children to use a number of skills linked to the year 5 and 6 Maths curriculums. See below for details of who has achieved the awards this year:

Stars of the Week
Each week, a child from each class, is chosen to be the Star of the week.
This is decided by their teacher for a variety of achievements. See below for this weeks stars...
Best Class Attendance
Attendance is an area that we are focusing on this year at Queens Park Academy. We have not authorised any term time holidays since 2011 but as so many of our families have relatives in other countries we have tried to make things a little easier by moving our training days to give a longer break at Easter in 2018. Please see the term dates for more information.
Children with excellent attendance can collect wrist bands and those with 100% attendance for the whole year will receive a special prize.
Every Friday we celebrate the classes with the best attendance in assembly. They are given an attendance cup, which they keep in their class. If a class gets 100% in a week, each child receives a chocolate treat!
The winning classes for week ending 10th November 2017 are:-
