We were very lucky to be visited by a member of the Clipper 1516 Round the World Yacht Race today.  Jenny Day, a crew member of 'Garmin' has been in regular contact with Miss Miles' Year 1/2 class since the start of the race in September 2015.  The pupils have sent cards, prayers, messages of good luck, videos and even an advent challenge for the skipper, Ash.  In return, they have received two videos from the crew and have had numerous mentions in Ash's daily skipper blog and the daily crew diary- check this website to keep up-to-date:

Jenny talked to the whole school in assembly about her part in the race and our PE coach, Nick, was lucky enough to be chosen to wear her 'foulies'.  After the assembly, she spent some extra time in Year 1/2 answering the children's questions and they presented her with a special edition Minion Easter hat which she has promised to try and get on board for her next leg!
