Pupils at Pinner school host Olympic ceremony for parents
Pupils treated parents to an Olympic assembly this morning to showcase some of the events which will be seen at London 2012.
Classes from reception at Pinner Wood School, in Latimer Gardens, have been learning about the Olympics for the last three weeks and have been preparing to perform their own opening ceremony.
More than 60 four and five-year-olds took part in the assembly, which included a procession of pupils dressed as athletes from different sporting events.
Sprinting, football, swimming, rowing, weight lifting, karate and cycling were all included in the special assembly.
Reception teacher Karen Wong said: “All the children have learnt so much and it’s because they’ve had so much fun.
“The main thing we wanted to teach was the values of the games and the Olympic creed that it’s not about the winning and the competition, but about the taking part and the inclusion of the games.”
Lee Haynes, mother of Quiheya who took part in the reception, said: “I thought the whole assembly was fantastic and really creative.
“I think the children who spoke in front of everyone were mature. All the teachers are amazing and really inspire the children.”
