Inspired through Sport

This afternoon, the children enjoyed a visit from a local Team GB athlete. Newton Abbot cyclist, Lauren Dolan explained her journey to becoming a national level cyclist. The children were amazed to hear that she rides her bicycle 6 times a week and trains in the gym for up to 3 hours a day. They were shocked to hear that after falling off her bike and suffering a nasty injury she got back on her bike and finished the race, which resulted in her spending her birthday in hospital! We learnt about the importance of being active and having a healthy diet. Lauren also shared the importance of being determined, having a positive mindset and the need to persevere in order to reach our goals.

Afterwards the children thought about a sport they would like to be world class at.


New School

This evening we were fortunate enough to be able to have a look around the new school. We were very excited to see how work is progressing.

Making story stones

This week we have been focussing on the story, ‘How to wash a woolly mammoth’, to help us learn about writing instructions. With the help of Mrs Prout the children made story stones. These will be used in the classroom to help the children understand the importance of putting instructions in the correct order.
