Newsletter – 6th July, 2012

[mls_h1]Dear Parents and Governors[/mls_h1]

[mls_h2]Bikeability[/mls_h2]

Our year 6 children have been enjoying cyling proficiency training this week. They have been practising road safety awareness both on the playground and on the local road. This is a really important skill for the children to develop before they move on to their secondary schools. We are planning to implement this on an annual basis earlier in the school year – so be ready year 5’s!
