Bikeability and Bikeability Balance

We participate in Bikeability (Level 2 and 3 for Y6 pupils), and this year - we are really pleased to be able to participate in Bikeability Balance (Reception and Y1 pupils).

Bikeability will run during Term 6.

Bikeability Balance will run from 26th to the 28th January, 2016.

Summary info from ‘Research into the Impact of Bikeability Training on Children’s Hazard Perception and Behaviour’National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER)

 Road accident data indicates that it is young cyclists aged 10-15 who are most at risk of being killed or seriously injured due to a collision with another vehicle. Furthermore, collisions resulting from cyclists ‘crossing or entering road into the path of another vehicle’ are particularly frequent for child cyclists.

… Children can have serious knowledge, perceptual and cognitive limitations in relation to roads and can be unpredictable because they do not have a good appreciation of road hazards …but…by the age of ten, they can achieve basic cycling competence with appropriate training for riding on quiet two-lane roads, negotiating parked cars and simple junctions.

 Bikeability aims to give children the skills and confidence they need to cycle on today’s roads, and so encourage more people to cycle more often with less risk.

Fire Safety and Fire Prevention

All classes have been learning how to stay safe in the event of a fire. Class 3 and 4 have developed Fire Evacuation Plans for their homes. You might like to share this video with your children again to see what we've been up to and help them develop their plans with the whole family.
