This week year 5 are learning how to control their bikes in a safe space through Bikeability.
In small groups the children started in the playground with the instructors – who checked their bikes and helmets. After all was completed they checked that the children could cycle before they started with hand signals.
On the second day it was out of the playground and onto the road. Getting on and off the bikes without any help and in a safe way was taught followed by hand signals and a junction to exit.
- It was fun and interactive
- My dad won’t have to teach me anymore as I now know how to keep safe whilst riding my bike.
- It’s enjoyable and I have learnt lots of new things – how to do a safety check of my bike and Keeping safe on the road
