British Cycle coaching

All of the children in Year 6 enjoyed their coaching with British Cycling this morning.

This was the first of four sessions with Dean, from British Cycling, before the children take part in some competitive cycle racing.

After learning how to set up their bike, the children played lots of games including ‘Fox and Hounds’ which involves chasing each other to capture bibs.


A task for next year’s Year 6

Hello, I hope that you are having a good summer.

I hope that you aren’t getting bored…

I’m busy planning a fab new reading area for the new term and thought that I’d set you a reading related challenge.

I’m attaching an image of a book review. I don’t want you to fill that in, but rather to use it to inspire you in designing your own. We can display your reviews when we get back and put some on the blog.

Cool-reads is a good website with reviews for children and teenagers by children and teenagers. Also, don’t forget the local libraries: .img_4236-1.jpg

End of a busy trip (shh!)

We hope that the children enjoyed their trip to Whitehall as much as Jackie, Mrs.Burns and I. 

It is always amazing to see the children in a new, contrasting setting and we were all impressed with their independence, hardwork and will power ⭐️

All of the running, hiking, climbing, scrambling, canoeing, jumping, nattering and laughing wore them out though… the coach journey home was very, very quiet.

Well do to all the children in Year 6 – you were fab.

Morning (after the night before)

In keeping with the tradition of all residentials, the children in Eagles made the most of their first night by devouring sweets, spending hours laughing and nattering before getting too little sleep 🙈

The boys and girls were all asleep by 12:30 am. The boys needed waking at 7 whilst the girls didn’t make it down for breakfast until 7:45. 

We’re all looking forward to a busy day of scrambling.
