Suffolk Young Cyclists' Training

The week beginning 1st June saw the eight Year 6 children take part in the Suffolk Young Cyclists' Training Scheme (formerly known as Cycling Proficiency).

The children had previously had their bikes checked by Jeanette Bloodworth ( Assistant Road Safety Officer) and spent the first morning refining their skills on the playground.

The next two mornings were spent on the roads near the village green practising general road awareness, safe starts and stops, left and right turns and overtaking parked cars.

It was great to see the confidence of the children increase as the course progressed. As part of the week, all children were required to work through a 'Cycling Workbook' to enable them to complete the whole course.
