Today John Willson and Tracey Wheatley from Rayleigh Town Archery Club have been working with some of our Year 5 & 6 pupils showing them how to use a bow and arrow. John also gave the whole school a fascinating assembly on the history of archery.
Another source of excitement has been the arrival of an Olympic Torch! John was nominated by Sport Essex to be one of the torch bearers and he brought his in to show us. It’s been an honour to meet one of the torch bearers and fantastic to have a go at holding (and having our pictures taken) with the torch.
John and Tracey will be back next Monday to work with the rest of Year 5 & 6.
