EYFS Balanceability

Early Years children have this week taken part in our first 'in house' Balancability Training', led by myself and Mrs Haines.


This is one part of our 'Every Child A Rider' programme, established last year to address the need to increase physical wellbeing of pupils by ensuring that ALL children in the school can ride a bicycle.


The staff training for this programme and the bicycles used were purchased though the School Sports Funding initiative; the idea being that the school can sustain the programme by having qualified staff and all the resources needed without relying on outside agencies.


On a personal note, I must add that I had a great time (as did the children!).  Working with the EYFS children is a delightful experience and it was great to see them engage so enthusiastically, even those who found it a real challenge.
