Scooter Smart Day 

 Tuesday 21st October 2014

On Tuesday 21st October we welcomed Rob from Derbyshire's school travel plan team! He worked with all classes to help improve children’s confidence and stability when riding their scooter.

Scooter Smart is a project aimed at providing children with the confidence and skills to use a scooter as a mode of travel, particularly as a way of encouraging scooting as an alternative to the car and as a healthier way to travel to school. We have recently been successful in securing a bid from the National Lottery to help us establish a scooter park in our school grounds and wanted to ensure that the children developed the skills to come to school safely on their scooters.

During a rather wet and windy day the children learnt how to use their scooter safely and took part riding around the skills course that was set up on the playground. Have a look at the photographs to see how much fun we had!!
