This term the children have been practicing their speed and hand-eye coordination as they trained for the annual Speed Stacking competition held at The Lenham School. The venue is sometimes the first opportunity the children get to enter in to a secondary school which in itself is a great experience for them, the event is run by students at the school and helps the children to gain confidence as the year 6 transition to secondary school approaches.
The dedication of the two teams that we took was evident as the children rapidly moved between each transfer and sequence. The children even took it upon themselves to practice at home with their own cups making use of every available moment to train.
The event was very loud and the pressure each child feels as they independently compete with an audience can cause even the steadiest of hands to become shaky. Our children performed to the best of their ability and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
We came second overall which is our best performance yet – watch out for us next year Greenfields!
The children would like to thank the staff and parents who helped with transport, we wouldn’t be able to go to such events without your support.
What People Say
Daci is learning really well. I love the fact that the children are pushed to their full potential.
It was very nice to be able to view Oliver’s work and see how he is progressing. Thank you for the opportunity.
“My child really enjoyed this Play and Stay and so did I as a parent. Nothing to improve – really pleased!”
Yr R Parent
Thanks for inviting me to do a story session with your school. I found the whole experience very rewarding as both children, and teachers were open to engage with me, and participated in listening to the stories, dressing up, singing and dancing.

“The behaviour of the Year 5 children was a credit to the school when we were out on the road.”
