A successful completion of the first Build A Bike Partnership with Critchill School, Julian House and pupils from Oakfield School.
The cycle workshop provides students with the opportunity to learn new skills, develop self-confidence and gain a sense of achievement, as well as begin to build work-related skills such as team-working and problem solving.
Last term Oakfield Academy have been working in collaboration with Critchill School and Julian House on an exciting project called ‘Build a Bike’. Four pupils had the opportunity to work on a bike, strip it back and rebuild it. They learnt many skills along the way which will help them look after their bikes in the future. The children also learnt many lessons in listening, perseverance, supporting each other and working in a new environment with new adults. At the end of the project the pupils were able to take their new bikes home as a reward for all their hard work!! Pictured are Oakfield pupils Taila-Jayne Maxted, Finlay Christenson, and Carl Cooper.
