Once again our cyclists came out in force to join our families for our termly Bike It Breakfast. Bicycles and scooters arrived and families enjoyed a healthy breakfast of bagels, bananas, grapes (and a strong coffee for the grown ups!) Even the drizzly rain did not put off our budding cyclists.
At Rachel Keeling we have embedded our cycling programme and all staff have been involved in developing children's confidence and skills in using the balance bikes and two-wheeler pedal bikes. Seeing young children master the pedal bikes in the park is wonderful. Children have persevered and grown in confidence and self-esteem. Regular access to the bikes has enabled children and staff to work alongside each other to become confident cyclists. The excitement of sharing their achievements with families is wonderful. Families have been borrowing our bikes and helmets at the weekend as well and we have "helped" families by removing stabilisers from their bikes too!
Thank you to all our families who were able to join us today and happy birthday Aliea!
