On Saturday 4th October, Peter Wilson, Olympic gold medalist, came to open our village fun day. Children arrived in Victorian costume and welcomed Peter in to Oak Class through the original front door. He told them how at the age of 6 he had wanted to be the best at something. He was rubbish at most sport because he had dislocated his shoulder, but he was good at shooting! He encouraged them to do their best at whatever they did.
He let the children hold his gold medal and had photographs with them.
Beech Class was transformed in to a Victorian classroom and Mrs Thomas made sure the children were well behaved and used their neatest handwriting!
Peter then went to the hall where he spoke to parents and visitors and officially opened the fun day. Key stage 2 children performed 3 country dances and encouraged family members to join in with one called Seven Springs. The Wessex Highland Pipes and Drums band also performed. There were games to play, a bouncy castle, stalls and plenty of food to enjoy. It was a great day!
