A visit from the Olympian Erin Kennedy and a chance to hold an Olympic GOLD medal! 

 

 

On November 29th, Erin Kennedy, an Olympic GOLD medalist visited our School. She taught us he she instructs her fellow rowers by teaching us some rowing instructions. Erin told us that she is a cox as well as a rower!  The staff were really impressed with the thoughful questions asked by the children.

Were you worried performing in front of a crowd?  Emily Year 1 

Erin ' Unfortunately to keep people safe there weren't big crowds in Tokyo but we had a big party when I got back home.'

Were there fish in the water when you rowed?  Year 1 pupil 

Erin 'There were flying fish in the water but luckily none of them jumped into the boat.' 

What type of oar did you have in your boat?  Lohan Year 2

Erin ' We had one oar which goes across the boat.'

 

The staff were really impressed with the kindness of the children who broke into spontaneous applause when Erin told them she had won a gold medal and also holds a World Record for rowing and is in the Guiness Book of Records. 

 

Erin kindly let all the children in the school hold her medal. It was very heavy. 

What a SPARKLING assembly. 

 

Erin inspired us all to go for GOLD! 

 

 

 

We are very much looking forward to taking the WHOLE SCHOOL to Norden Farm Theatre on Friday 17th December 2021. We will be watching Kipper's Snowy Day. We hope it will be a sparkling end to our term.

Our Christmas Theatre Visit December 17th 2021

We held a Remembrance assembly for our children where we reflected on how lucky we are to live in peace. We talked about how some people choose to wear white poppies to celebrate peace on Remembrance Day. We also learnt about purple poppies to remember animals who helped during wars. Year 2 children watched a live history webinar and learnt about one family's legacy following on from WW1. Thank you to Mrs Vilelas for finding out about this. 

 

Thank you to James, Esmee, Natalie, Willow, Pru and Ikiyanna who helped create the magnificent poppy from PE equipment that was the centre piece of the assembly.
