More success for APS was achieved by Year 5 pupil Sam in

the annual reading competition, this year hosted at our

school. Sam’s extremely dramatic reading from ‘Heroes of

Olympus’ by Rick Riordan had us on the edge of our seats

and gained him first place in the overall competition and a

very large trophy to stand on his mantelpiece. Well done


On the sports field, Year 5 pupils Will, Lucas and Stephen

were selected to play for the school’s 1


football team in

the ISFA National Finals at St George’s Park. We were

very proud of the whole team when they achieved 3rd

place in this prestigious competition. It was a wonderful

experience and a great learning curve for all three boys.

Earlier this term, Mrs Hobbs took two teams

of Year 5 boys to Stockport Grammar to

participate in a Maths Challenge against a

number of local junior schools. We were

delighted when both teams returned

victorious taking both first and second place

in the competition. The boys showed not only

incredibly strong maths skills but also the

ability to work cooperatively as a team. Well

done to Harry, Isaac, Seb and Cameron and

also to Archie, James, Ben and William.

We are delighted with the manner in which the boys have risen to the challenges of Year

5. It’s been hard work but great fun too and we wish all of our pupils happiness and

success as they move into their final year at A.P.S.
