Blackburn Rovers Visit

On Monday afternoon we were very lucky to welcome Blackburn Rovers star players Danny Graham and Richie Smallwood into school to get involved with some of our lessons as part of the Premier League Primary Stars package. They jumped straight into action and helped our reception children on their bikes during their PE lesson - they were definitely impressed with their bike riding skills.

They then spent some time in 5C as the whole of Year 5 were fortunate to have the players take part in a guided reading session. Both players outlined the importance of reading and said how much they both loved to read at school themselves as young boys. This was certainly inspiring news to some of our pupils. They then took part in a Q and A session as our Year 5's asked some brilliant questions - aswell as singing a famous Blackburn Rovers chant which both players found hilarious.

Finally, the two stars popped into our afternoon assembly, answered some more questions and watched our dancers perform on stage. We loved our time spent with the players and will definitely remember it for a long time. Photos coming soon!
