“This week we are learning about anti-bullying because it is important to know how to cope with bullying and how we need to be aware of our own actions and how they could make people feel. It is important to be able to spot bullying and know how to help. ” Year 6 girls
” Kieran turned a negative situation into a positive by telling someone at his school. It made him realise that he could and should continue with his athletics and that dreams can come true of you work hard at them.” Year 6 boys.
Look out for the next blog update where the Y6 children will have a PE athletic session with Kieran. We wonder if any of them could beat his 100m record?
