Year 4B - Bikes

The children learnt to do an M-check, inspecting the bikes side on. They tested the spokes, the tyre (hard like an apple, not soft like a banana) and the chain. Helmet fitting was crucial, then they got ‘pedal ready.’ A swift trip to the other end of the playground and back, and then they were ready to speed up. The children learnt about gears and how they help power uphill and cruise downhill. They practised essential real-world skills, such as looking over their shoulder and signalling, all the time keeping their balance. Finally, the children mastered the all-important emergency stop. Great work!
