On Friday 18th October 19 Kingdown Students went on an all expenses paid trip to London, funded by Sky Sports. Students were chosen due to the number of Olympic Values they have achieved in PE, participation in Gymnastics Club and progress made in Raising the Game.
An excited bus journey down to the big city, continued with an excitable evening staying in the Radisson Blu Hotel near Heathrow.
The alarms were set for 6am, quick turn around and the ‘Sky Shuttle Bus’ collected us for the journey to the studio. On arrival students tucked into a variety of breakfast choices and were given the chance to write questions and shout outs for the show ahead, as well as put themselves forward to get involved with the skills session.
Eight students were selected to take part in the Dan Magness Football skills session; Mr Haydon took them off to the studios ready for rehearsals before the live show.
Darren Campbell Olympic Gold medallist presented the show, the students were given the chance to get signatures from all guests, including three times World Champion and Bronze Medal winning Gymnast Beth Tweddle.
The show is live every Saturday morning and the clip can be seen below or here
