Bikeability

Emma Davis and Emma Briton (Year 5) write:

Our Year 5 children have taken part in ‘Bike ability’ this week (week beginning 17th July).

On the first day, we got our bikes and helmets (if you hadn’t brought a helmet in, then you could borrow one). We got on our bikes and rode around the cones in the playground and when we got to the corners of the square we would put our arm out to signal, to turn right/left.

We then had a slow race and the last person to finish won – you couldn’t put your foot down on the floor otherwise you were out. Our 2nd last session was the most important one, when we did our test. This time we were out on the actual roads instead of in the playground. We had to signal to go round corners; we had to also look behind before we did anything different.

Remember - always be safe on bikes and make sure you wear a helmet!
