Pupils will be able to handle various artefacts including, clothes, weapons and armour and compare past from present lifestyles.
PEDALS - Cycle Training
The children in Giraffe class took part in a Surrey County Council scheme called Travel Smart in Surrey, this week.
Pedals is a practical road safety awareness course for pupils aged 5-7 in Years 1 or 2 at school. This is the age group for whom the road safety learning concept of 'stop look listen' is generally considered appropriate.
Pupils can participate on their bikes, even if they have tricycles, stabilizers, on their scooters, or on foot. The course lasts one hour. The aim is that by the end of the course trainees will be able to:
Achieve some of the simpler Level 1 outcomes – start, pedal and stop.
Explain how wearing a tabard and helmet can improve their safety.
Stop, look and listen before crossing the road in a simulated traffic environment.
All trainees receive a certificate of participation.
