Year 6 Bikeability

Year 6 pupils from St John Bosco Primary School enjoyed a successful 2 day ‘Bikeability Course’. Normal lessons were put on hold as, under the guidance of two expert instructors, Mark and Lisa, the pupils learned how to be a safe and proficient cyclist. The two days began by learning about cycle maintenance and then progressed to learning about the highway code and road signs. Everyone, staff included, were fascinated to learn that the ‘STOP’ sign inside an octagon is the same across the world! Then, after a short session on the playground, the group were ready to hit the road for a day and a half’s intense lessons. The children were taught a range of skills during their rides and were being constantly assessed in their proficiency in a range of skills and safety issues. This was made even more difficult with the poor weather conditions they had to put up with. At the end of the two days everyone was delighted to learn that the whole group, 19 children in total, had all been successful and gained their Bikeability badge.
