Jesse Owens

Jesse Owens

Posted: Mon 30 Oct 2017   |   Assemblies

This morning as part of Black History Month and to celebrate our new running track we learnt about the achievement of athletics legend Jesse Owens. I explained how Jesse overcame racism and won four gold medals at the Berlin Olymic Games in 1936. At lunchtime our Year 5 children had the chance to use the running track. Everyone was very excited and lots of the children ran ten laps which equates to a  mile. Great to see the children enjoying the track and keeping fit at the same time.
