Chancellor of the Exchequer Visits School

School was visited today by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, to meet the children and congratulate school on its handling of the COVID19 crisis. 

We are proud that the school’s efforts during this trying time have been recognised by one of the Great Offices of State. 

The Chancellor visited reception and read their favourite story, “The Smartest Giant In Town” before moving on and having a chat with children from Years 1 & 2. 

Moving on to Lower Key Stage 2, he conversed with the children and staff there about their topics. In Year 3 we discovered that The Chancellor is a fan of the sabre toothed tiger, and in Year 4 he was regaled with tales and videos of Roman battle formations. 

Moving on to Year 5, The Chancellor discussed the Tudors, Captain Cook and the Mars Rover in a wide ranging conversation.

After a discussion about World War 1 in Year 6, he was challenged to a times tables competition by some of our Year 6 stars. A fast paced draw with John eased Sunak into the competition, before he was bested by Oscar “The Rocket” Stephenson who answered 7 x 8 quicker than a hiccup. Mr. Johnson had announced before this challenge that Oscar VS Rishi was in fact for the title of Chancellor of the Exchequer, so congratulations to our new Chancellor, Oscar. We are looking forward to your first budget. 

Following the visit, Mr. Kelly said, “I am honoured that Rishi has taken time out of his busy schedule to visit our wonderful children and school, and show his appreciation to all the staff for their incredible hard work not only throughout lockdown but also for this half term. Our reception children loved listening to him read a story to them, although I think it’s fair to say that he met his match with out amazing Year 6 times tables FA Cup superstars.”
