Y5 take part in ‘Bikeability’ training
Last Thursday, Y5 children started their on-road cycle training, ’Bikeability’. Designed to give young road users the skills and confidence needed to ride their bikes on today’s roads, the training takes place during school hours over a period of six weeks.
It was a cold, damp and dismal first session. However, the children didn’t complain! All of this session was conducted on the school playground and it began with a safety check of the children’s cycles and helmets followed by an observation of the children’s cycle control skills.
Next week don’t forget to bring warm and comfortable clothes to cycle in – a pair of gloves is essential!
