Striving to be the best we can!
Year 5 were lucky enough to take part in the 'Bikeability' program. This course is designed to ensure the children could not only ride their bikes, but ride them safely.
On the first morning, the children were taught how to make safety checks on their bikes and helmets to make sure they were safe to use. They rode on the playground to practise skills such as 'lifesaving looks', sharing the road, and emergency stops.
Then it was time to hit the road! Amongst other skills, the children practised doing u-turns in the road, stopping and starting safely and overtaking parked cars.
Great fun was had by all!
