Classes 3 and 4 were extremely fortunate to have been invited to visit Exeter Chiefs and take part in tours around the ground. Both Aron and Richie showed the children all areas of the ground including 'behind the scenes' elements: the children were able to experience the changing rooms and sit in some of the players seats; visit the gymnasium, looking at the records set by different players; look in the physiotherapy room and find out about the cost of this and even visit the ice-bath pool! As well as this, the children learned about the new developments within the stands, found out why the pitch had a slight raise in the middle and even learned that the Exeter Chiefs sub seats are heated!
Throughout the afternoon the chidlren asked lots of interesting questions about the different roles within the club as well as gaining new information about some of the players. This was a brilliant opportunity for the children which engaged them even further with our Sporting Legends topic and allowed them to develop their understanding of the workings of a large sporting facility.
A massive thank you to Aron and Richie for giving up their time to show everybody around, we had a fantastic day and have learned so much about Exeter Chiefs!
