Growth Mindset through BMX

Tuesday 04th May 2021

What a fantastic day.

We welcomed Mike into the school to run a whole school outside assembly followed by workshops for all the children in Sycamore and Willow classes.

Whatever their level all children were able to join in, step out of their comfort zone and challenge themselves with a positive mindset to help them succeed and not give up.

From learning to ride a bike to having the courage to perform tricks, all the children had great fun 'Flerning'.

Enjoy the photos!
