Mrs Burgoyne on stilts

Mrs Burgoyne is Hothfield’s champion stilt walker. Without any wobbles or falling off she covered the stilt course very confidently, even travelling back to the start line. The crowd applauded loudly and cheered her as she covered the course on the stilts. Mrs Burgoyne used to play on stilts when she was little. In a later interview, she said “It was like riding a bike, you never forget the skills.” Can’t wait for Years 3 & 4’s sport’s day so she can have another go. Perhaps we could video it.

Kayleigh was our pupil champion stilt walker. She completed the event without a single fall or wobble. We’ll have to get you on video too Kayleigh. In a later interview, Kayleigh said ” On sports day I walked on the stilts right to the end. I’m really proud of myself because last year I couldn’t do it at all!”
