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.

Young Apprentice Week 

The Young Apprentice Week has been mentioned above and teaches children to take responsibility, work hard to create a reward, undertake market research (what sells well and how can we maximise profits?), keep accounts balance the books and decide what to buy with their earnings.  We also have a Young Apprentice week each year when the children work in groups of 6 to choose a charity to support and raise funds for it.  They have to work as a team, using their individual skills to best effect.  £10 is given to each group which then generates a fund raising activity and plans what equipment and actions are needed.  The activity is designed, trialled and advertised.                                           

                                           

Every piece of paper, writing implement and equipment has to be purchased by the group who keeps a total of what is spent and raised so that they can calculate the profit left for the charity.  When everyone is organised the activities are set up in the playground after school and hundreds of pounds have been raised and sent to a range of charities.     

                      

Through this the children are applying maths (calculating costs, subtracting costs from gross profits, adding and multiplying different amounts of money), using written English to write letters, learning presentation skills (by designing and presenting the advertising for their stall – verbally and in poster form), learning to work in a team and value each person’s gifts. They also begin to understand the needs of others through learning about the charities they support.
