On Monday, it was the beginning of our annual Bikeability training scheme, provided by our friends at West Sussex Council. Normally the event is run towards the end of Year 6 in warmer conditions, but despite the colder weather, the children thoroughly enjoyed their experience.
The children were assessed on their ability to control their bicycle before taking on the roads of East Preston. Knowledge of the highway code; road positioning and observation were all key features of the intensive two-hour training session.
Some very cold, but happy faces emerged with the skills to keep them safe on the roads and we hope that the rest of the week is as successful.
