  • Brilliant Balance Bikeability

    Published 25/01/22

    Last week, the children in Reception were able to develop those crucial early cycle handling and awareness abilities which improve a variety of skills. The children were using a Balance Bike (a bike with no pedals) to focus on their ability to balance, to manage their speed and control their bike. Through this development, some children were ready to progress to pedal cycle training (Learning to Ride) by the end of the course.

    Last night Smith's Wood ICT suite was transformed into the Minecraft Mastery Arena. 4 teams battled against both the clock and the elements to complete our first survival house challenge of the year.

  • Year 6 are Out of this World

    Published 12/01/22

    Year 6 blasted off to the National Space Centre in Leicester. They got the opportunity to take part in a great rocket challenge workshop, where children competed in groups to create a rocket that could land on the moon! The children also went into the planetarium to watch a short film called 'Astronaut' - a surreal experience for some! Then finished the day exploring the rocket tower. Everyone had a great day, embedding the learning about space from the classroom.
