We had a visit from a truly inspirational individual today, Jim Plunkett-Cole (Jim Gump); runner, triathlete, campaigner and lover of the outdoors. He preached the benefits of daily exercise and had many wonderful stories about his adventures around the world. After assembly, we joined the whole school and Jim for a run around the school field, high-fiving other classes as we went, before a school photograph at the end. On Friday we are going to write a recount of the visit for our Big Write.
