Learning Together, Achieving Forever

Year 6 Bikeability Week

This week, Year 6 have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in a series of Road Safety proficiency sessions delivered by the Hampshire Bikeability team. Despite the cold weather, it thankfully remained nice and dry which allowed the children to maximise their time cycling on the road. Thank you for ensuring that your child came to school wearing lots of layers so that they could enjoy their sessions much more too!


At the beginning of the week, the children learned about some of the essential checks necessary to ensuring their bike was safe before setting off on their journey, including the ABC check – air, breaks and chain. Following on from this, the children learned how to signal, how to perform a U-turn in the road and how to safely exit a junction using the 'Primary Position Prevents People Passing’ strategy amongst other road safety skills. The children were incredibly polite and sensible and were able to follow clear instructions before practising the manoeuvres themselves. The children will bring home their road cycling proficiency certificate tomorrow and will be able to explain all of the different elements that they learned this week. 


We have seen a fantastic level of resilience and determination from all of our riders this week and we are so proud of the accomplishments and progression that they have each made individually. It has been lovely to see so many children feeling more confident when cycling on the road.
