Primary Press Conference with Rik Waddon

Rik Waddon

Today, four year 5 children enjoyed an experience of meeting the amazing Rik Waddon at Abraham Guest Academy.

At the age of 14, Rik began competing in cycling, after being inspired by watching Tour de France as a youngster. Since then Rik has shown great consistency, bringing home medals from most major competitions.

He suffers from Cerebral Palsy after falling from his bike at the age of five. We asked him a range of questions about his sport. We had a great time and look forward to seeing him in September at the Paralympics. Follow your dreams and go for gold!

Aspull Schools Swimming Gala

Last night (4th February), six schools competed in a swimming gala. It took place in Wigan swimming baths, where we all cheered each other on as we tried to win the trophies. It was an eventful night and we all tried our best and had a super time. By the end of the night we were the champions! We managed to win 4 out of 4 trophies! We are all really proud of our achievements!

Lunchtime Dance Club

This term Mr Heyes from Premier Sports is holding a lunch time dance club. We are really enjoying this club and we are making a routine for ‘What do you mean?’  Our favourite part of the club is creating new individual dance moves and we are also doing dance moves in pairs. Rhiannon and I are really excited as we will get to perform this routine in front of the whole school on the last day of half term.

Just Join In

Last Friday, eight children were invited to the Wigan youth zone to take part in a range of inclusive sports such as athletics, dance, gymnastics and New Age Kurling. We all had a great time and learned lots of new skills to help us with our sports. The day also helped us with our communication skills which were needed, especially in our dance routines.
