Today we had a visit from Sarah Jayne Perry who is ranked 8th in the world at squash. She talked about how she became a professional and the hard work and dedication it took to achieve her goals. Hopefully we can use her example in our own work in school.
Today Year 5 and 6 were visited by two rugby league stars from Salford Red Devils – Lama Tasi and Justin Carney. They came to talk to the children about what it takes to become a professional sportsperson as part of our aspirations week. Both Lama and Justin told us all about the sacrifices they have made to achieve their career and also the hard work which they have put in. One of their key messages was that ‘you only fail if you give up’ and that is something we hope to remember in our own PE work.
We have also arranged for over 40 children and parents to attend the Salford Red Devils first home game of the season this Saturday against Wigan Warriors, with many experiencing rugby league for the first time! Enjoy the game everyone!
This week, children from Year 5 and Year 6 competed against other local schools at the indoor athletics tournament at Kearsley Academy. You can see pictures of the event below:
