On Wednesday 1st February, the Reception classes were visited by Captain Greenwood and two cadets from Colfe’s School. Both Cadet Lily Chambers ¬†and Corporal Jack Parton went to Pointers when they were in primary school!

Captain Greenwood told us about his time in the army and the many different jobs people can do to help us. He showed us fun videos of marching and the Red Arrows! Cadet Chambers and Corporal Parton then told us about the many interesting things they do in the CCF (Combined Cadet Force) at Colfe’s School. They showed pictures of fighting fires, doing obstacle courses at their training camps, and flying planes!

After the presentation, the children got the opportunity to try on some of the army gear and pretend to be camping using canteens and an army sleeping bag!
