The Weatheralls Primary School

Year 5 Pony Academy

 This week, our Year 5 pupils are attending the Newmarket Pony Academy at the British Racing school. This community project is designed to use horses and ponies to positively impact mental health and wellbeing. It is providing our pupils with the opportunity to learn new skills such as teamwork, confidence and resilience. The pupils are learning about equine science and the hard work and dedication needed to look after horses.

The five-day course is mixing equine care with core subjects and team building activities, whilst improving key skills such as confidence, resilience and overall engagement with learning.
