Bike-It

5th April 2017

Our second Bike It breakfast of the year and we were blessed with a beautiful morning.  A huge thank you to all the parents who not only brought along their children on bikes and scooters but also helped decorate them as well.  And they were fantastic!  So thank you very much for the effort.

Another huge thank you to the Bike It crew who worked very hard to make breakfast for everyone, well done Bike It crew.

Thanks also to Mrs Hobday for organising and Mrs Shetty, Mrs Herniman and Mr Nicholls for all your help.

We look forward to our next breakfast in the summer.

 

The Bristol Family Cycling Centre at Hengrove is a new purpose-built facility for the West of England, giving people of all ages and abilities the chance to learn to ride a bike and practice their skills on a safe, traffic-free cycle track.

Cycle training activities and sessions run most days and are a great way to get people cycling in a fun and friendly atmosphere with Bikeability-trained cycle trainers.

Activities include:

Bikeability training – from balance bikes for young children, right up to adult cycle training

Family cycling activities

Children’s bike exchange and sales

Bike maintenance sessions for adults

Free after-school drop in bike maintenance sessions for under 18s (starting again at Easter)

Back to biking sessions for adults to regain their cycling confidence

Regular open sessions available – just turn up on the day!

A current timetable of events can be found on the Bike It notice board opposite the Year 6 classroom.

Our first Bike It breakfast of the year and unfortunately we had to go inside as the weather was really gloomy.  However the children made up for it with a fantastic attendance and all of the french-themed breakfast disappeared!

The raffle prize winners were:

Damon and Charlie - Year 6

Ben and Max - Year 5

Taona, Isabella and Craig - Year 3

The aim of Bike It is to promote cycling, in the hope that our children will grow into adults who ride a bike for leisure, exercise and as a means of transport.

We want children to have fun riding their bikes so we organise Bike It Breakfasts, competitions and other events throughout the year. We also have a Bike It noticeboard in the corridor opposite Year 6 so please take a look when you are in school, we will be displaying useful cycling/scooter information, helpful websites and information on cycling trails over the course of the year.

Every year we invite pupils in Key Stage 2 to apply to be in the Bike It Crew. Their role is to assist in the running of these events. This year’s crew are:

Taona and Adam - Year 3

Claudia and Mollie - Year 4

Nico and Maisy - Year 5

Connie, Nitish and Isabelle - Year 6

Our first Bike It Breakfast of the year will be on Wednesday 9th November, it will be held from 8.30 am until 8.55 in the school playground. If the weather is unkind to us then we will be in the hall! For this first breakfast there will be a French theme supporting the learning of French that takes place within the school.

 

Why not try our bike-it trial.
