P5& P6 Bikeability – starts Monday 8th May

P5 and P6  Bikeability is planned over the next few weeks.

Bikeability Scotland is a cycle training scheme designed to give children the skills and confidence they need both to cycle safely on the roads, and to encourage them to carry on cycling into adulthood. Bikeability sessions at Yester are provided by trained parent volunteers.

We are delighted that Belhaven Bikes will be in school on the morning of Monday 8th May to check all the children’s bikes.

Please bring bikes to school for this brilliant service as unroadworthy bikes can waste lots of time at beginning of the sessions and may result in your child not being able to participate.

You should have received a letter home regarding the date of your child’s session. Your child should also bring a helmet, gloves and waterproofs on the day.

More information about Bikeability can be found at http://bikeabilityscotland.org/

P4 take on Europe

Turn up the volume, set the video to HD, and join in the singing and actions as P4 represent Scotland in this year’s 9th edition of Schoolovision, singing the Fischy Music song “You Are a Star”.

All entries are appearing on the website over the next 10 days, before the 1000 children in 37 countries taking part choose their favourites in a special webcam conference on Friday 12th May, the day before Eurovision itself.

 

Cycle training

Would you like to help train our P5, P6 or P7 pupils in cycling skills? We are dependent on willing parents to deliver our Bikeability courses. Bikeability Scotland is a cycle training scheme designed to give children the skills and confidence they need to cycle safely on the roads, and encourage them to carry on cycling into adulthood.

There is free training being run across East Lothian for those wanting to get involved and support schools’ Bikeability Scotland programmes.  Please get in touch with Mr Devereux if you would like to become involved. Dates for training include full and half day options on March 10, 17 and 24, April 21 and 28, May 12, 19 and 26, and June 2.   The course can also be delivered at Yester if there are enough participants, or broken in to more suitable sessions.
