Children in Year 2 this school year have had the opportunity to improve and develop their cycling skills.Six bikes were purchased at the start of September to allow the children of year 2 to experience riding a bike. Children have been working in small groups with Mr Qualter on a range of activities to help children develop confidence when riding a two wheeled bike.  Hopefully with continued practice year 2 will be accomplished riders by the end of the school year.
