Year 4 2020-2021

Paralympian Aaron Phipps

Year 4 were blown away by a visit from Aaron Phipps, a Paralympian. Prior to his visit, we watched a video about his life and career. He then came into class to talk to us about his amazingly inspiring journey through his life, from a troubled teen, to an amputee at the age of 15, to a successful athlete and Paralympian in his adult life. His life decisions from there have taken him across the world following new challenges and things that will push himself to his limit. The children and adults were humbled by hearing about his six-day journey up Mount Kilimanjaro. We all decided he was a true legend, and I am hoping that he has inspired our children to always set goals, get organised, ask for help and work hard - no matter what is thrown in their life path.]
