Be The Best That You Can Be:  Meeting Anna Hemmings MBE

 

We had our launch day of 'Be the best that you can be' on Monday 15th May 2017.  Anna Hemmings was our guest speaker and she really got adults and children motivated to become their best.

 

A bit more about Anna:

Anna Hemmings MBE is best known as Britain’s most successful ever female canoeist, a two time Olympian and 6 times World Champion. However, in April 2009 after 15 years at the highest level of the sport Anna decided to retire from professional sport.

 

She is now the Director and co-founder of Beyond the Barriers, an organisation dedicated to improving health and performance in individuals and organisations. Anna is adept at translating the lessons that she learned in sport and into the business world and as such is an excellent presenter, workshop facilitator, performance coach and licensed 1:1 HeartMath coach.

Anna had a glittering sporting career; she first broke into the top flight of the sport at the age of 19 when she won her first European Championships in marathon canoeing. In 1999 she defended her title and went on to win her very first World title. Anna is the only British female canoeist to ever hold both European and World marathon canoeing titles concurrently (1999 and 2005). Throughout her career she won a staggering 11 World and European Championship medals.

Anna is also a two time Olympian, having competed in the 2000 Sydney Olympics in the K1 500m event and at the 2008 Beijing Olympics in the K2 500m event partnered by Jessica Walker.

 

Like many journey’s, Anna’s was not without struggles. In April 2003 Anna was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome and was told by medical experts she might never race again. Anna was burdened by this illness for two years, but despite being told there was no solution, Anna’s ‘never give up’ attitude along with a treatment called Reverse therapy, enabled her to make a full recovery. In 2005 she signalled a miraculous return to fitness by regaining her status as the World’s leading marathon canoeist at the Marathon Racing World Championships in Perth, Australia. In the years following Anna went on to make it a hat-trick of three World titles in a row.

Visiting children's author, Denis Bond, ensured that our Book Week kicked off with a bang.  During Book Week, children had teachers, parents and older children (Buddy Reading) share books with them.  Children also had a book swap.  They brought in unwanted books and swapped it for another book they hadn't read before.  On Tuesday and Wednesday we also had a 'Stop, Drop and Read' session where children had to stop what they were doing and read their book as soon as they heard the bell ring - it was quite entertaining!  Book Week ended off on a high note with children dressing up as a favourite character featured in a book.  Some of the costumes were very imaginative - well done!

RSPB National Bird Watch 

As part of RSPB National Bird Watch, we made bird feeders using plastic cups, string, lard and seeds.  We then hung our bird feeders around our garden and our forest school site.  During Maths and Forest School, we made a tally of the birds that we spotted whilst walking around.  We also made a lookout and used our 'binoculars' made from rolls, to look for birds.

Chinese New Year

We have been learning about Chinese New Year and how it is celebrated.  We took part in dragon dances, made paper roll dragons and even got to eat noodles and prawn crackers.
