Bikeability is a national cycle training programme supported and funded by the Department for Transport. The course builds the skills and confidence of children who can already ride. Bikeability can not only make children better cyclists - potentially for the rest of their lives - but can help with general confidence and independent thinking. We have been lucky this week to have had Bikeability training within our school. The training was delivered by qualified, professional, DBS-checked National Standard Instructors. Our children listened very well and were a credit to the whole school. Well done!

European Day of Languages.

On Friday 30th September, we celebrated European Day of Languages. 6B learned all about Scotland and Ireland - where Gaelic is spoken. We found out some fascinating facts, learned a few greetings, tasted food from both countries (including a porridge taste challenge) and looked at the work of two poets: Seamus Heaney from Ireland and Robert Burns from Scotland.

Year 5 & 6 Newsletter.

Bikeability (this year from the 21st to 24th November. Mr. Mitchell has forms if needed).

Well done to our members of Year 6 who have all successfully completed their Level 1 and Level 2 courses in Bikeability.


Bikeability is Cycling Proficiency for the 21st Century. It develops children's skills for cycling on single lane roads with simple junctions and moderate traffic. We have learned about making observations, maintaining riding positions, communicating intentions, and understanding priorities on the road.


The instructors were very pleased with the children's behaviour and everyone who participated passed the course.

Sports Ambassadors.

Here is our Sports Ambassadors receiving their certificates on completion of the training programme. Good luck to them in supporting the school in all our sporting activities.

'Jade' Carvings.

As part of our topic on the Shang Dynasty, we have designed and carved some 'jade' figurines - something that they were renowned for.

6B Junior Play Leaders.

Our Junior Play Leaders are a fantastic help at dinnertimes. They work in Key Stage 1 to ensure younger pupils have a good lunch break - setting up games, refereeing matches & helping with taking turns or deciding what to play.  We are really grateful for you taking your own time to help others. It's just one of the ways we are proud of you.

6B Pupil Voice Representatives.

A difficult vote because we had some super candidates but we selected Emily and Harvey. Their role is to represent the ideas and views of the children in school.


After taking an FA approved course, our mini-whistlers are trained to referee small-sided football games - but other games too. The skills they learnt are transferable to other games too. Well done to all you refs/umpires for your time and dedication in helping other people enjoy their sport more.
