After an exciting and eye-opening assembly held by Pierre (a three time Olympic champion) the children of Southern Road held their breath and gasped as he and Ms Daniels thrust their way through a fencing duel at the front of the hall. Suddenly, the children were captivated by what they saw, waiting eagerly for their own attempt.
Year 3 and Year 5 have used this half term to fine tune their battle skills, defending until the time is right to lunge and attack their opponent into submission.
With all the children wearing full protective body and head gear they were able to enjoy every second. Fencing has shown the teachers and instructors alike that we have some very talented young boys and girls in our school.
Well done Southern Road!
