We are the students from 3/4C at Barwon Heads Primary School in Victoria, Australia. There are 26 of us and our teacher is Miss Jordan. We use this space to share all of the fantastic things that are happening in our classroom.
This week, the grade four students are involved in our school Bike Education program.
Each day, students complete four rotations designed to improve their riding skills and road safety awareness. Students also participate in a daily on-road ride to practise their skills.
Some skills that students have practised include:
Preparing their bike and helmet for safe riding
The power position
Riding safely from a driveway to the road
Riding around parked cars
Riding on different surfaces
Riding single file
Riding with a partner and riding in a straight line
Here are some photos of the 4A and 4B students enjoying the Bike Ed rotations.
Students will have the opportunity to practise their riding skills again during our camp in a couple of weeks. It is also expected that the grade four students will be role models for other students when they are riding to and from school each day.
A big thank you to all of the parents who have assisted with our Bike Ed program this week!
