Amanda and Karen from Bikeability have been teaching Year 5 about the importance of wearing a helmet when they are out on their bikes and how to check their bike to ensure it is safe and roadworthy.
We did an experiment with two eggs. One egg was wearing a crash helmet (yes really!) and the other wasn’t. When they were dropped from a height into a tray, we saw first hand how a helmet protects our head when we fall.
Amanda and Karen encouraged us all to make sure that we wear a helmet no matter where we are riding and to make sure that we wear it properly. Bikeability also run a course teaching children how to travel safely on their bike which quite a few children were interested in.
