The masterclass was part of a new initiative to get more young people involved in inclusive sport ahead of the Rio 2016 Games.

Shardon-nay was very lucky to be paired up with Dina Asher-Smith and said:  "I had a blindfold on at first so didn't know straightaway that I was paired with Dina! It was really inspiring to be with a famous athlete who helped me to run. Wearing a blindfold was quite scary but I trusted her as she explained what to do to made me feel comfortable."  

Classmate, Catherine was with Libby Clegg for the challenge, and added that it was good to train with children from a school where students had special needs saying, "It was nice being with the other school. Even though we are different we are all the same. No matter what your disability we can do the same things. Libby can run really fast which is so cool."

Pop-up exhibition at Enfield Grammar Lower School

Purple Class went on a trip through time when they visited the Enfield Grammar Lower School. After spending time in class learning about the different countries and soldiers involved in World War I and II, they visited a pop up exhibition to see artifacts for themselves! 

The children became detectives when they had to look through old shoe boxes full of clues about different soldiers. They read letters from soldiers' loved ones, saw medals and even got to wear hats and goggles which some would have been worn at the time. Purple class even had fun playing old board games which would have entertained soldiers when they were not on the battlefields or in the trenches. 

Everyone enjoyed the visit and the pupils now have a better understanding of how different communities from around the world worked together to create the place we now live in.
