Torchbearer

 

Torch makes a big impression

Children at Broadclyst Community Primary School enjoyed a visit from Olympic torchbearer Adam Rooke.

Pupils at the school have been learning about the Olympics and were excited to have a chance to hold the torch.

Adam, the first torchbearer in Exeter, spent time in every class answering questions and talking about his experience carrying the flame. The children had their picture taken holding the torch with him.

Year 1 pupil Gracie Bauer said: "I liked having my photo taken with Adam Rooke and touching the Olympic torch. It felt bumpy, heavy and cold."

Classmate Olivia Bateman added: "I liked it when he showed us the torch and when he told us how it was lit from a lantern."
