Year 5 Bikeability 2017
All children who participated had a great time completing their training up to Level Two, meaning they are safe to ride on the roads, when accompanied by an adult or older sibling.
The training was in two parts:
Level One on the playground at school showing basic control and bike handling skills. They were required to show that they could start and stop efficiently; look over their shoulders to check for other users; ride with one hand of the bars and show signalling; show control at slow speeds culminating in a ‘Slow Race’.
Level Two on the local roads around the school site. They were required to complete starting and stopping safely; U-turns; passing a parked car and a side road; left and right turns into various side roads and main roads.
All the children were successful on the day and recently received their Level Two certificates and badges in assembly.
