We have had something new and very exciting in nursery…balance bikes! They are like normal bikes but without pedals. We used the handle bars to steer and control them with our feet.
We even practised using the balance bikes outside.
In the hall we learnt how to move the bikes in different ways using our feet. We had races and competitions riding all the way from one side of the hall to the other. We used the bench to practice moving using our feet.
On the balance bikes we learn about control and coordination. We move around obstacles moving fast and slow and using the brakes. We have to control our bodies to keep our bike balanced. It was very tricky but we got better and better with each go!
