He spoke with children about working hard, never giving up and making changes in their lives in order to achieve. He also spoke about the injuries that he has faced over his career, including suffering from meningitis and becoming deaf in one ear, including how he still gave his very best in order to compete in athletics championships.

Deji explained what it takes to be an athlete and the things that you need in order to succeed. Later today, classes will have a chance to take part in PE lessons with Deji to find out more about his athletic skills.

Hoola Hooping Workshop!

Those who have not visited Wales, have been taking part in some offsite visits and fun activities back here in Gosport instead. Image result for globefit hoola

Today, we were visited by Hannah from Globefit-Hoola who taught us some hoola hooping tricks. We all enjoyed learning how to spin the hoops on our waists as well as our arms, which at first was a lot trickier than it looked. By the end, we were all confident hoola-hoopers and even created our own routines using tricks and moves taught to us!

“I was so much better than I thought I would be.” (Declan M)

“Once I got the rhythm right, I couldn’t stop. I was able to jump whilst spinning the hoop.” (Amy P)
