Before the half term holiday 14 pupils from year 5 took part in Bikeability cycle training, led by staff from Cycle Experience. This enabled them to become more proficient when riding a bicycle out on the roads.
This is what they had to say about us:
Cycle Training at Hatfield Sheep Dip Lane Primary School
I would like to say a big "THANK YOU" to you and all school staff for inviting us and helping with the success of cycle training at your school starting Thursday 20/10/2016.
As always, we very much enjoyed our time spent with you and would also like to say a big "THANK YOU" to all the pupils for their superb energy and enthusiasm throughout the course. We felt that they all really benefited from the experience and we hope they go on to put it all into practice.
Please also pass on our sincere thanks to the parents who gave permission for their children to participate in the course. Finally, thank you for inviting us to the school, for the help of all your staff, who made us so welcome and looked after us so well.
Comments and Observations:
The children worked hard to achieve good levels of riding. They supported and encouraged each other and if necessary offered to lend their bike if broken ones could not be fixed. They behaved very well and were a credit to themselves and their school. We were warmly welcomed by all the members of staff and the 2 assistants who joined us on the road helped encourage the children and helped us by being an extra pair of eyes enabling us to concentrate on individuals more.
All the children do need to start to get a better understanding of roads and priorities however, if they ride their bikes more and put into practice the skills they have learnt, they will enjoy their riding more.
Well done to all and thank you again from 'Cycle Experience'.
We look forward to working with you all again in the future.
With kind regards,
