BMX Workshops

Year 5/6 were treated to a fantastic, inspirational talk by Mike Mullen, a BMX rider. He talked at length about growth mindset and how he overcame the challenges of his early life. Mike talked about the mantra ‘rise above’, which he kept in mind when faced with challenges. All the children were able to take part in BMX workshops during the day, developing their cycling skills as well as their growth mindsets! Even Mr Ray and Mrs Driver were faced with a challenge when they were ‘volunteered’ to lie on the floor while Mike jumped over them on his BMX. Fortunately, they survived!

Today we continued to unwind after SATS by planning a Lunar Theme park for a colony on the moon. We were given a budget, had to cost out what we wished to include in the park, work out income and even our profit! Some of us really thought had about the budget and what had to be repaid or how to bring in extra income. What fun!

Here are our final park designs from a birds-eye view:
