For the first time this year, the Royal Academy are running the Young Artists’ Summer Show, inspired by the Academy’s own Summer Exhibition. The new show offers primary and secondary level students the chance to exhibit their artwork at the Royal Academy – both on site and online.
MKPS entered several pieces from our Prep children and we’re absolutely delighted that Kamran Shokar from Year 4 had his pastel still life (below, top) selected for the online exhibition, whilst Coco Derry from Year 3 had her piece (below) shortlisted. A brilliant achievement for both of them!
In November 2018 around 67,000 children from 1600 schools took part in the Primary Mathematics Challenge. 10% of those children scored between 18 and 25. The top 3.5% of those children were invited to take part in the Bonus Round in February. Twenty MK Prep children were amongst that number.
Of that top 3.5%, just over half of the children achieved bronze, silver or gold awards. 80% of our children who took part in the Bonus Round achieved awards – nine Silver awards and seven Bronze awards. In many cases, gold, silver and bronze awards were missed by only one mark.
What an amazing bunch of children!
Congratulations to the U11 Boys Football team, finishing runners up in the East Region of the 7-a-side ISFA competition held at The Perse School, Cambridge. The boys came second in their group and progressed through to the knockout stages. They beat Langley 3-2 in the quarter-finals, defeated St Josephs in the Park 1-0 in the semi-final and then progressed through to the final to play hosts, The Perse.
The boys made an excellent start, scoring first from a corner. After a hard fought game they fell just short losing 3-1. Well done, an excellent achievement!
As part of the Sports leaders’ silver award this year, they had to organise a Junior Inter-House tournament for both the girls and boys. They had to warm up their team, coach their own House and referee their own games. The girls’ tournament involved all Year 4 girls and some from Year 3. After a closely contested round robin tournament, Emerson scooped the first victory and became Junior Netball Inter-House Champions!
Junior Football Inter-House Football involved Years 4 and 3 boys and proved to be a very exciting tournament. As the final approached, Emerson and Ravenstone were head to head with the same amount of points. Emerson powered their way into first position, with Ravenstone coming a very close second.
Emerson – the winning team!
The Sports leaders did a fantastic job, having built a very good rapport with the younger children, who had a thoroughly positive and enjoyable experience from their first Inter-House tournament! Well done to all the teams and to our sports leaders!
Congratulations to the MKPS U10A team for winning the annual MKPS 5-a-side indoor football tournament on Wednesday 27th February 2019. The B team also performed admirably, coming very close to beating other schools’ A teams.
