Year 6 Bikeability
At the beginning of October, Year 6 children took part in a level 2 Bikeability course. After learning about some of the basics (within the school grounds) the children who were able to, took their bikes out on the road. The children learnt how to check their bikes and safety helmets before setting off on a bike ride and they also learnt different manoeuvres to keep them safe whilst riding on the roads. Every pupil had lots of fun, whilst learning a range of different road skills. Some of the children have also benefitted from improved confidence to get out and about on their bikes. All of the year 6 pupils, who took part, found this a valuable and enjoyable experience and if they didn’t already ride their bicycles to school, they were excited to do so going forward. We encourage the children to keep all of the skills they learnt in mind when riding on the roads.
