Today our playground has been very busy with lots of year 3 and 4 children achieving their Level 1 Bikeability certificate. Level 1 takes place off-road, normally on the school playground. This means that children can learn in a traffic-free environment.
Maintain your cycle: make sure your ride is in tip-top condition and make simple repairs
Glide: smooth, calm and collected
Control your bike: including setting off, cruising, slowing down, braking and stopping. You’ll even learn to pedal one handed!
Pedal: without feeling wobbly or out of control
Be aware of your surroundings: looking behind and turning around obstacles.
Thank you to Ian and Kevin for their time today and we look forward to seeing them again later in the year when they return to teach our year 5 and 6 children.
A group of year 5 and 6 children went to Park school on Wednesday to take part in the annual netball tournament. It is a great tournament organised by Chris Farr and the Park School sports leaders. It was lovely to see former Bishops Tawton pupils there helping to run the tournament and hearing how they loved attending when they were younger and how excited they are that now they have the opportunity to umpire, teach and encourage our children, which they did superbly. Annie, Chloe, Greta, Libby, Isla, Izzy, Max and William won 5 out of 6 matches and came 2nd in the North Devon Schools. They worked so well together and had great team spirit throughout all their matches. Thank you to Chris Farr, the sports leaders and Lisa for helping the event to go ahead, we appreciate the time it takes to organise these events and look forward to future events. There are photos from the netball in our gallery.
