Some of our older children have had the opportunity to take part in the Play on Pedals scheme with Mrs Garden. This scheme has been introduced for pre-school children in some nurseries in Aberdeen. The purpose of this scheme is to support children as they develop their skills on balance and pedal bikes. As they progress through this programme they learn about the parts of the bike, being safe, how to improve their balance and using brakes, all through playing games. All children have shown an improvement in their confidence and ability using balance bikes. Our next Play on Pedals programme will begin after the mid-term.
Please take a minute to look at the children’s book documenting their progress.
