|Children at Ladycross have been involved in scooter training. This was part of our continuing work about travelling smart to school. Children can walk, car share, use the bus, and even come on their scooter! All children in school were trained to use their scooter with care, being taught to glide, brake and stop, and weave through cones, so they would have good scooter skills if they travelled to school by this method.
Zig zagging through the cones.
Scooters are available at playtimes so that children can continue to practise their skills.
We are encouraging a more healthy and greener way of travelling to school than coming in a car. Children can scoot to school - see our scooter code.
A number of staff from other primary schools visited Ladycross to see the scooter training in operation.
A group of children demonstrated and answered questions about scooting to school. If you are a school that would like to get involved in scooter training, please get in touch.
