I have had a great end of term at Oaklands but the highlight was definitely going to the Scholars' Track Day at Mercedes-Benz World.

It was such a fun day and it was great to get to know the other Scholars. The best bit for me was doing the off-road 4x4 course, together with Siobhan O'Connor.

I have finally started long jump training and I'm really pleased with the progress I am making. I have been concentrating on my technique and plyometrics work so far but I am really enjoying the new challenge.

I am now home from college and enjoying spending time with my friends and family.

I'm off to Wales tomorrow for Christmas with the Welsh side of my family which I am really excited about.

Happy Christmas everyone.
