Paralympic stars Ellie Simmonds and Jonnie Peacock visit Sheffield school – The Star

Paralympic Athletes Visit Primary School in Sheffield

Pupils at a Sheffield primary school were given a surprise earlier this week when two Paralympic stars visited their school.

Paralympic GB athletes Ellie Simmonds and Jonnie Peacock surprised Phillimore Community Primary and Nursery School, as they donned disguises and stood in as substitute teachers for the day.

The unsuspecting class received a double PE lesson and Jonnie, who is currently taking part in BBC show Strictly Come Dancing, even handed out a few dance move tips.

The children tried out a range of sporting activities during the day, including wall climbing, tennis, rugby and football.

The pair were providing new sporting equipment to the school as part of the Sainsbury’s Active Kids campaign, which has provided £180m worth of sporting equipment to schools and clubs in the UK since 2005.
