Event - Year 5 Bikeability

8 June 2015

During the week of 8th June 2015, 29 children in Year 5 took part in Bikeability, which is the cycle proficiency program offered by Birmingham City Council.

Firstly, all children took part in Level 1 where they learnt to control and master their bicycle on the playground. After this, small groups of children ventured out on to the open roads of Harborne with two instructors and developed skills such as how to start and finish a journey by road, make a u-turn, identify hazards, use junctions and understand the Highway Code.

The children thoroughly enjoyed the week of training and have gained some valuable knowledge and skills to help them keep safe while cycling in our busy city.
