Olympic medallist Katherine Copeland MBE visits school

The junior children were inspired and delighted to meet Katherine Copeland MBE when she came to school today, to talk about her triumphs and how she got there, in assembly this morning.


Katherine won the Gold medal in the Women's Lightweight Double Sculls rowing event at the 2012 London Olympics, with her team mate Sophie Hosking.  She brought her beautiful medal in to school to show the children.


After the assembly the Year 5 and 6 children got stuck in to a cooking workshop with 'Cook School', making the most delicious samosas.  The children learnt new cooking skills and got to taste ingredients many hadn't tried before.  The children showed great listening skills and team work.  


Many thanks to Aldi for sponsoring the event, which was organised to celebrate the opening of the new local store.
