APS News 33

abingdon.org.uk/prep 5 IN SCHOOL ART AND DT Our Warhammer Young Leader, Stanley, organised a super tournament this term. Teams of players from Year 3 to 8 battled it out until the grand final where George narrowly beat Toprak to become ‘APS Warhammer Spring Champion’. It’s a great club for making friends across year groups, learning something new and practising a much-loved game. Special thanks to Stanley for being a tremendous leader and a great support to the younger players. WORLD BOOK DAY Our annual celebration of books on World Book Day is always an event we look forward to, pupils and teachers alike. Children dressed as a character from one of their favourite books showing us their fantastic costumes in assembly with a quiz led by Natasha. Prizes were awarded to the best from each form, which included Rupert the Bear, Iron Man and Stig of the Dump. Not wanting to be left out, the teachers award went to a suitably terrifying Miss Trunchbull! It was an incredibly fun day with a serious mission: to promote reading for pleasure which, ultimately, improves children’s life chances and opportunities. THE OTHER HALF - FOCUS ON CLUBS WARHAMMER GARDENING New term! New clubs! Both requested by the School Council. Sam in Year 7 has set up and is running Comic Club.
