On Thursday 21st June 21 children from MIS, MJS and Bacton visited UEA and the Sainsbury Centre in Norwich, as part of our work on raising aspirations.
We had a fantastic day touring the entire campus – we even looked at the accommodation and the ‘nap-zone’! Our UEA student ambassadors were very informative – they really helped the children get a good understanding of what a University is! During the afternoon we took part in an Art workshop at the Sainsbury Centre with a particular focus on the sculptures which surround the building.
Our day of higher learning was great and our aspirations have risen – we just need to get through primary school, high school and college before we can apply to be an undergraduate!!
On Tuesday, we were lucky enough to be visited by not one, but two, Olympic swimmers. Joe Roebuck and his partner, Amy Smith, came along to encourage us to participate in sport, but also to reach our dreams.
The morning began with a fitness circuit which was completed by all members of the school, from Reception to staff! It involved completing 1 minute of four different activities: spotty dogs, leg drives, push ups and and star jumps. By the end of it, there were lots of red faces and the hall had a new aroma!
Afterwards, we gathered back in the hall for an inspirational assembly about how Joe reached his goal. He focussed on all the times he had nearly given up but kept going so that he could compete in the Olympic games. He showed us a few of his favourite medals and then we had a test of our reactions, with Macey taking the crown.
I don’t think the hall has ever been so noisy as he encouraged all of the children to cheer him on in one of his races and spoke about how encouragement really does help people achieve.
It was hard work but what a fantastic morning!
