Children at Westfields Junior in Yateley have been immersing themselves in Olympic spirit – in their clothing, song and dance and in person!
Paralympic GB rugby player Aaron Phipps visited the school
Paralympic GB rugby player Aaron Phipps visited the school to talk to the pupils during a special assembly about striving to do your best and working hard to achieve your goals.
He brought with him his specialised rugby wheelchair so that the children could see the difference, and try it out themselves.
On the same day both children and staff dressed up as an Olympian or Olympic event to raise money for Sport Relief.
And just before the Easter break the pupils showcased their many talents in an Olympic inspired concert at the Yateley School next door.
Performances at the sell-out night included solos and ensembles on instruments such as guitar, brass, percussion and harp.
Westfield's award-winning choir also performed, along with the school's Bollywood and Olympic ring dancers.
