Road to Rio Launch

 

Our children had an amazing experience. They were the only Primary School children to be invited to the Launch of Get Set's Road to Rio App Launch. The children were invited to the Aquatics Centre at the Olympic Park where they met some very inspiration people and joined in some fun games.

 

Logan, Ellie, Bright, Taylor, Daniel and Lacelles were given Road to Rio bibs to wear while they played different games. They played Table Tennis and Goalball with Lord Sebastian Coe, four time Olympic Medallist, and with Max Whitlock, a GB gymnast. The children were interviewed by BBC and Newsround and appeared on the ITV news playing table tennis with Lord Sebastian Coe. We also had the delight of watching Tom Daley train at the centre. We saw him jump off of 3 different height boards, including the top one.

 

Ellie, one of our pupils said "I had a very enjoyable day and especially enjoyed the table tennis because I learned some new skills."

 

At the end of the day the children were given their space hoppers and bibs as a memento of the day. They are very excited about bringing the Road to Rio App back to William Bellamy.

William Bellamy’s Football Team attended a live performance of

Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo

 

To help raise the profile of Sport and Reading, William Bellamy’s Football Team went along to the Queens Theatre on Sunday 21st September to watch the live performance of Private Peaceful originally written by Micheal Morpurgo. The children had a great evening and were stunned by the story and great acting. One of the boys said “The show got better and better, the ending was really good.” At the end of the performance the boys stood up to applaud the actor. The boys are now able to loan the selection of Michael Morpurgo books from the PE department.
