Inspiring Olympians of the future...

9 October 2015

This morning, we welcomed a very special visitor into school. We were lucky enough to have a visit from Great Britain heptathlete Jess Taylor!

Jess spoke to us about the events she competes in and brought in some of the equipment that she uses to compete. She also brought her Bronze medal from the 2014 Commonwealth games in to show everyone. Jess is hoping to compete in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Before the event, each of the children took part in a sponsored fitness circuit, which is raising funds to purchase new PE equipment. The children put lots of effort in and showed a great attitude (despite some tired legs!) Hopefully, we can put our new equipment to good use to inspire some future Olympians!
