Cycle to School Day Friday 24th May

Last month we had 125 children and parents cycling from King’s buildings to School. 
Let’s try and beat that number tomorrow. Weather may be chilly so wrap up!

Ride starts from King’s Buildings at 8.20 sharp. Either join us at the start or feed in from the side streets as we cycle past.

Primary 3 Cycle Skills Sessions

What an amazing experience for our P3 classes! It was a focused approach to developing cycling skills in small groups with an experienced trainer. Now the children understand the need to move at a slower pace and still keep their balance. By gaining better control they can put their hand out to signal a turn. When their bike is kept straight they have greater control. They discovered that toes on the pedals gives more power.

In addition it was lovely to see one or two children make the transition from using stabilisers to cycling independently.

Many thanks to Angela Christie for her knowledgeable input and for organising this remarkable event and the rest of the team.
