Year 6 children at All Saints’ Thurlestone C of E Academy, which is part of the Learning Academy Partnership, have been learning about the importance of road safety during an exciting bike riding course.
As part of the bikeability course, the children were given the opportunity to go on a team bike riding lesson. During the lesson, the children were taught about the different types of roads around their local area and what the dangers on these different roads are for both bike riders and pedestrians.
The lesson was also a fantastic opportunity for some of the children to be able to learn to ride a bike and develop their confidence in cycling on the road safely. The bikeability scheme is led by the Plymouth Schools Sports Partnership.
As part of the scheme, the children are also taught how to ensure that their bikes are roadworthy. In order to encourage their children to get outside, the academy has placed an importance on educating the children on how to enjoy their local area in a safe manner.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the lesson and being able to take a bike ride on a lovely sunny day.
Lesa Garside, Head of Academy at All Saints’ Thurlestone C of E Academy, said: “We wanted to be able to provide our children with the knowledge and confidence to be able to get outside and enjoy the beautiful scenery around our local area safely.
“I want to say thank you to the Plymouth Schools Sports Partnership for providing our children with a fantastic lesson.”
