Learn to Ride
Our Learn to Ride sessions were a big success with all 12 participants learning to ride a bike within one day. At William Bellamy Primary we believe that cycling confidently is a skill all children should be able to do. Therefore, we teamed up with the borough Learn to Ride scheme and identified 12 pupils who could not ride a bike. The experienced cycle coaches worked with the pupils perfecting their balance, coordination and confidence. By the end of the day all 12 pupils were riding their bikes without stabilisers or additional support.
This week, we have identified more pupils who cannot ride a bike. We are looking forward to our next Learn to Ride next month, where 18 other pupils will have the opportunity to attend this session and learn to ride a bike.
