Cross Country Success

cross-country-kaiyuki

During the winter season Kaiyuki participated in one of the West Midland Young Athletes Cross Country League (WMYACCL) races helping to boost up the overall points for the Rugby & Northampton AC team. His club won the league and as such Kaiyuki received a medal for being part of the U11 boys team. It was an unexpected medal, as he only did one race, but every little helps and he is more than happy!

Romeo & Juliet

Yesterday, Kaiyuki and Kae performed in William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, as part of the Act Three Drama group at the Royal & Derngate. Kae played Peter and delivered her lines with wonderful clarity and precision. Kaiyuki who recently joined the drama group this passing term was given the role of Romeo. He learned all his lines and gave a fantastic performance, not wanting to let his Juliet down of course. The whole group put in an amazing collective performance, which was funny and creative. We’re very proud of both Kaiyuki and Kae!

Sprint Training with Stanley Madiri

Last week we had a fantastic sprint training session hosted by elite IAAF athletics¬† sprint coach Stanley Madiri who has trained Olympians such as Jodie Williams and Christine Ohuruogu. The session was organised by our dad’s friend Dwight Notice for students from the University of Northampton. We were lucky enough and very grateful to be invited along. It was so much fun and we learned a lot! We wish we could do training like that every week!

Partial Solar Eclipse 2015

We had a wonderful treat this morning. A partial (near total) Solar Eclipse in the UK. Luckily being based in the East Midlands meant we had a chance of seeing the 2015 Eclipse. It was a our first time to view a Solar Eclipse so we were super excited. With live footage being beamed from the BBC on our laptop and our solar glasses in hand we relaxed in our back garden for the stunning cosmic event. The sky got darker, the earth got colder and the birds went silent. Watching the moon go past the sun whilst sitting on earth was a magical experience!

Great Fun at The Big Bang Fair

We had great fun last week at The Big Bang Fair in Birmingham. The Big Bang 2015 is an annual event at the NEC for young and aspiring scientists and engineers. We were so excited and engaged by all the stalls that we were there for over 4 hours! We’ll definitely be going back next year!
