Cycle Skills July 2017

On Wednesday, our wonderful Year 3/4 children had the opportunity to work with ‘BikeIt Dave’ to enhance their skills and confidence whilst riding their bikes! The children had a great time with the ‘How slow can you go race?’ being a personal favourite of many of the children! Huge thanks goes to ‘BikeIt Dave’ for his work and support with our children throughout the school year, we couldn’t have done it without him!

Impressing with Scratch

In ICT club this superstar created his own take on the classic penny fall game. He worked out the timing of the ball falling, the angle in which it needed to fall from each stage and the rotation of the ball as it fell. Fabulous coding work!

Fabulous Freestyle

What an amazing day we’ve had here at West Meadows! What a privilege it’s been to have football freestyle world record holder Ash Randall in school all day. Children have watched Ash perform has tricks in assembly this morning and have then had the chance to try them out for themselves! We’ve been so impressed at how well the children listened and learned and how quick they were able to perform some of the tricks, some you will have seen on twitter!

Once again, a huge thank you to Ash for giving up his time and spending what’s been another action-packed day here at West Meadows!
