What an amazing and action packed morning we all had today!!!
Nathan Fox, the Team GB triple jump athlete and Omar the Sportivater made sure that we started our day with some fun and fitness.
All of our enthusiastic children from Reception to Year 6 and our supportive staff took part in the Fun Fitness Circuits. From the minute they entered the hall to the moment they left, everyone was fully involved doing star jumps, spotty dog, leg thrusts and push ups.
Everyone gave it 100% in both effort and attitude in order to complete all 4 elements of the full circuit.
After an energetic couple of hours Nathan and Omar spoke to everyone in an assembly. Nathan explained how important this weekend is for him. He will be competing in the British Championships in Birmingham to try and secure one of two places in Team GB for the upcoming World Athletics Championships at the Olympic Stadium in Stratford this August.
To wish him well on his way and will him to win, everyone in the assembly chanted NATHAN! NATHAN! NATHAN! as loudly as they could. He had inspired and encouraged us throughout the morning and we wanted to inspire and encourage him too.
Coverage of the British Championships will be on BBC1 on Saturday at 4:00 pm. Make sure you're all watching and supporting!!
Don't forget to return all sponsorship money next week. Money collected will go towards new PE equipment for our school and a percentage of all money collected will also go to the Sports for Schools charity.
Once again we'd like to thank the Earlsmead families and friends for their ongoing support.
Well done for all the money collected so far, but keep it coming in!!
