Year 1 Scooter Heroes!

Brent, from Scooter Heroes, joined Rose Street Class for some scooter safety training.

First off, Brent checked over everyone’s scooter to check they were in good working order.  A few bolts were loose, so he tightened them up.  Then helmets were checked, making sure the straps where adjusted correctly, not too tight, not too loose.

Brent taught balance skills, the children loved scooting with one leg in the air!  Next came learning to stop safely, which included using the back brake.  Cones were set out in the MUGA and the children practised steering around a twisty course.

More seriously, Brent explained how to be extra safe with your scooter, how to be mindful of pedestrians, to always get off your scooter to cross the road and how to find the safest place to cross roads.

All the children had a wonderful time and learnt new skills from the session.
