03 Oct 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 more training for the Spring & Summer terms
Our fabulous free Folks on Spokes Family Bike and Cycling Club continues meeting weekly each Monday 3.45pm-5.15pm but does come to an end at the October Half term. Meet in the Top Playground. Exciting!
