24 Jan Cycling Is How We Roll!
Excitement was in the air this morning as our Year 5 children took part in the National Standards On Road Cycle Training under the guidance of Cycle Confident UK and Hackney’s Sustainable Travel Team.
The aim of the course is to give children the skills and knowledge to use their bike safely and effectively on quiet roads. The children are taught in a group and are under the direct supervision of 2 experienced instructors at all times. After taking part in fun games and exercises in the playground and demonstrating their competence, they will be taken onto quiet roads to be introduced to the basic rules of the Highway Code.
The course takes place during the school day for 2 hours each day this week. We are also delighted to say that we have secured another round of training in the summer term.
Watch out also for news of our fabulous free Folks on Spokes Family Bike and Cycling Club which makes a welcome return on Tuesday 21st February, 3.45pm-5.15pm and each Tuesday during term time. Families meet in Junior playground. Exciting!
