We look forward to meeting both old and new faces back in school on Thursday 3rd September. School starts at the usual time of 8:55am, but the school office will be open on Tuesday and Wednesday should you have any queries regarding the new term.
Chris Tomlinson visited New Silksworth Infant School this week and put the children through their paces!
Children took part in a sponsored exercise event lead by Chris and his team. Children (and teachers) were jogging, jumping and bending to the music, but most importantly everyboday was having fun. The music was pumping and there were plenty of rosey cheeks by the end of it, everybody gave 110%!
After the exercise event, Chris delivered an assembly to the whole school about the importance of trying hard and giving 110% per cent. Everybody was inspired by the Olympic athlete's personal story and the children left with aspirations of achieving their dreams in the future. Chris answered lots of questions from children at the end of the assembly and told us all about his training, diet, injuries (get better soon Chris) and even his pet dog!
All the children then surrounding the new Sports England funded sports area for a photo opportunity and a round of applause when Chris cut the ribbon!
The whole morning was great, so take a look at some of the pictures on the website!
