and live on Freeview channel 276
Professional freestyle footballer Jamie Knight started the day by delivering an assembly where he shared his unique gifts and talents with the children. He even got the teachers involved as well.
The aim of the workshops was to develop a positive growth mindset, focusing on persistence, resilience and determination. By the end of the day, the students involved were able to balance the ball on their necks, perform a drop heel, and a variety of other tricks.
PE leader Beckie Johnson said: “The children were very excited to have Jamie visit us for the day. It was great to see the children challenge themselves, learn new skills and show perseverance.
“Our children had a real sense of pride and success as they left the workshops being able to perform some of the tricks Jamie had showcased earlier in his assembly.”
Assistant head teacher Helen Connor said: “Jamie promoted the importance of hard work and dedication in developing a skill. Our school’s motto of 'Getting Better Never Stops' was exhibited by all of our children.”
