" Dear James and Emma,
Please find attached a handful of pictures from the fencing sessions you have so kindly done with our children in EYFS at St John's Penistone.
It has been a pleasure to have you both here teaching our children as we have explored Knights and Princesses.
The children have learnt so many amazing skills and we have seen them grow and develop over the sessions from this half term.
From the beginning many of our children were excited about fencing and have shown the ability to remember the basic fencing skills you have taught them. This has included fencing stepping and following fencing calls such as 'salut' 'en guard' and 'alle'.
The children have also learnt how to dress themselves appropriately for fencing and have learnt the terms used for the equipment they are using; the mask, vest, foil and most importantly they have learnt that the safest place for scoring points is the trapezium.
As a group of pupils the children have thoroughly enjoyed having James and Emma here in school teaching them these amazing skills. I would highly recommend James and Emma to anyone who would wish for their children to learn these skills in a friendly, exciting and engaging way. Your imagination to follow the topic and engage the children further in this has been wonderful and we are very grateful for the skills you have taught the children and for the time you have put into them.
Thank you again"
