We were delighted to welcome the Olympic Gold Medallist Denise Lewis to our school. Denise gave an inspiring assembly to all the KS2 pupils in which she talked about her career and also answered questions including what inspired her to compete and how she became an athlete.
Denise then visited the whole school during which she was impressed by the enthusiasm of all pupils. All the children were delighted to meet Denise who also showed off her gold medal. Furthermore, she took the chance to visit P.E. lessons including reception children using their great outdoor area and a year 5 basketball session.
In the afternoon, Denise took a questions and answer session with the year six sports leaders and school leaders from nine other local schools. The children had the opportunity to give a presentation to Denise on what their schools did in terms of sport.
