Students gain bicycle confidence skills

Pupils at Felsted Primary have been practising their cycle skills.
The school was able to access funds through the sports partnership.
Year 6 pupils took part in a two day course to gain the Bikeability award and learned the skills necessary to ride their bikes safely on the road.
Year 6 children who live in the village are now able to ride their bicycles to and from school.
Year 2 pupils spent a day on the Lean to Ride course. They practiced skills such as stopping, starting and turning.

“This will ultimately help the environment and parking around the school.
