BMX Challenges!

On Wednesday we had a visit from a former BMX champion Mike Mullen. He talked to our KS2 children about Growth Mindset and encouraged children to think about changing I can’t do this, into I can’t yet, and how he used this concept to learn new skills both on his bike and in his life. The Year 6 children then had an opportunity to apply this thinking during a BMX workshop where they kept challenging themselves to try new tricks; including feet on their handlebars, standing on their crossbar and riding with no hands; all under the expert supervision and tuition of a BMX champion. They all broke barriers and wowed the adults around them, whilst continuing to expand their thinking. A fantastic day and experience.
