Year 5 Bikeability - Monday 12th September

Dear Parents and Carers,

As you may be aware, the children have a fun filled week next week with Bikeability starting on Monday 12th September 2022. This is a week-long activity and the children will be given a session every day except Wednesday due to swimming. They will be with qualified instructors and will support your children. This is a free workshop.

We will be giving the children letters this Wednesday and they must be given back by Friday. Please be mindful that if letters have not been returned, your child will not be able to participate in Bikeability.

This is an excellent opportunity for children to improve their bike riding skills. It is not a course where they learn to ride their bikes. For this reason children must not come with stabilisers.

Please ensure all tyres are checked, that they have a helmet and can ride their bike before bringing to school on Monday.

Children will need to take bikes back home every night.

Last year, it was a fantastic opportunity for children and a great way to ease them back into school life. Many thanks to Mrs Chavda for setting this up.

More news to follow on Friday on where we would like to store the bikes in the day time. All children will have to take their bikes home after school every day. The school will not be taking responsibility for the safety of the bike overnight.

Hope the children have a fantastic week!


Kind Regards


Year 5 Teachers
