Congratulations to the following children who were winners in our Children in Need Bake Off: 1st place: Kasiah 2nd place: Ruby 3rd place: Archie. Congratulations also to Emma Beard who won the parent competition! Amazing efforts by all who entered.
We celebrated Children in Need by wearing yellow, spots or Pudsey merchandise. Our Bake Off celebrated all things CiN and we even managed to have a mini cake sale, selling cakes created in our Discovery Hub. We raised £224.39 – an incredible effort from our QPS community.
We combined the grand opening of The Discovery Hub with our Children in Need celebrations. Y4 became the first class to cook and parents were invited to come and see the new space, whilst trying some tasty treats! We cannot wait to see the room used for DT & Science lessons.
Our brand new netball team played their first ever competitive match this week against a strong St Aidan’s team. They had a wonderful experience playing and are demonstrating commitment and tenacity weekly, turning up to training, learning the rules and representing QP superbly
Quest Primary has been celebrating Anti-Bullying week by wearing our odd socks to raise awareness. The children have taken part in lessons and an assembly to develop their knowledge and understanding of how to be a kind friend and stand up to bullying
Mrs Hill met with a group of parents this morning to discuss online safety and the challenges that parents can face when supporting their children to be safe online. Lots of good discussion, sharing of experiences and some top tips #responsibility
Y4 (& some of Y6) had a great time on their trip to the cinema and even managed to snag the only VIP seats! Both classes represented Quest Primary superbly in the cinema and on the tram, with a number of members of the public commenting how delightful they were
Lunch safely devoured, it was onto the dizzy heights of the climbing wall. It was lovely to see the children encouraging those among them who were more nervous, and celebrating the small successes as well as the larger ones #sayerscroft
On the agenda this morning, after a tasty breakfast, was a spot of pond dipping. The children enjoyed fishing around in the ponds and then identifying the creatures they caught before releasing them safely back into their habitats #sayerscroft
Year 6 arrived safely at Sayers Croft ready for an action packed time. After settling into their dorms, it was off to the maze and blindfold trail, followed by an evening of campfire fun. #makingmemories
4 of our fabulous Year 6s welcomed visitors to Quest Primary today, for our morning and afternoon open day tours. They represented the school brilliantly and greeted our visitors with confidence, respect and great manners, showcasing just how amazing our pupils are
Diana came to share her fantastic descriptive writing with the leadership team for the second time in a week, today. She proudly read her work aloud, with fluency and intonation. Fabulous work, Diana, you are becoming a superstar writer!
A gaggle of superstar writers from Y1 (complete with Red Riding Hood style capes/coats!) bounced into Miss Stawman’s office to share their re-tells of the story. Capital letters, finger spaces, full stops and adjectives to describe were just some of the features they had included
Huge congratulations to our children from Year 5 and Year 6, who represented Quest Primary in the Croydon Cross Country event on Monday. A special shout out to Benas who finished 5th out of over 120 Y6 competitors! #excellence
The sun rose this morning on Year 6s final day at Quest Primary. After an emotional leavers service we made sure they received a fabulous send off with best wishes from the whole school. Good luck, Jemison class, we will miss you!
Huge thanks to our PTFA who have raised a total of £1728.75 for the school this year. This has funded our new therapy space, the pantomime, book bags for new Nursery/Reception children and the Y6 Leavers hoodies. Thank you for all of your efforts.
Our celebration assembly was a fantastic way to share the achievements of our children. Teachers spoke with pride about all the children have achieved and there were even some happy tears! It was lovely to sing to a packed hall of parents, who stuck with us for well over an hour!
After a term’s worth of learning their instruments, our Rocksteady musicians performed their first ever gig to an enthralled audience of their peers and parents. We are proud of how confident you have all become to perform to an audience, after such a short period of time.
Quest Primary School has been rated ‘Good’ in all categories by Ofsted. The inspector’s report, which follows a visit to the academy at the end of February 2023, states, “Pupils enjoy attending this warm and caring school. They are well looked after by staff who help them to feel safe, secure and happy at school.”
Fab to see our Y1/2 parents at Dr Parker’s maths workshop today. Parents were shown fun ways to support their child’s mathematical understanding before joining their children in class to work alongside them. Thank you to all for your engagement #aspiration
Year 6 had a fantastic time this week watching the matinee performance of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, performed by a wonderfully talented cast of Riddlesdown students. Congratulations to all involved for such an incredible production #excellence
