Recent workshops have invluded:-

Year 3 Art Day

Year 4 Creative Art Day

KS1 Irish Dancing

KS1 ICT

Year 5 STEM Day where students joined a team currently working on a unique, high-technology project, focused around a 1000mph World land speed record attempt.

Play Maker

In addition four of our most talented sporting students have been chosen to participate in the Play Maker run by Aspire Coaching. The children meet monthly over an academic to participate in sports workshops to become sports leaders. 

Bikeability

All of our Year 6 children take part in a week of 'Bikeability' . They are given practical on road training and are generally are taught how to stay safe on their bikes. 

Level 1

At Level 1 new riders learn to control and master their bikes in a space away from traffic such as a playground or closed car park. Trainees will usually be trained in a group of 3-12, though individual training may also be available in your area.

At Level 1 you can:

  • prepare yourself and your bike for cycling
  • get on and off your bike without help
  • start off, pedal and stop with control
  • pedal along, use gears and avoid objects
  • look all around and behind, and control the bike
  • share space with pedestrians and other cyclists

Level 2

Level 2 takes place on local streets, giving trainees a real cycling experience. Trainees learn how to deal with traffic on short journeys such as cycling to school or the local shops. Trainees are usually trained in small groups – up to 6 trainees per instructor – though individual training may also be available. At Level 2 you can:

  • prepare for on-road cycling
  • start and finish an on-road journey
  • recognise typical hazards
  • let others know what you are about to do
  • know where to ride on the road
  • pass parked vehicles and side roads
  • Level 3

    Level 3 equips trainees with skills for more challenging roads and traffic situations – busier streets, queuing traffic, complex junctions and roundabouts. It also includes planning routes for safe cycling. Level 3 training is delivered one-to-one or in groups of up to 3 so can be tailored to a trainee’s individual needs, such as a route to work or school.

  • At Level 3 you can:

  • prepare for a journey
  • understand advanced road positioning
  • pass queuing traffic
  • perceive and deal with hazards
  • understand driver blind spots
  • react to hazardous road surfaces
