As part of our Science topic, the Toucans brought their bikes and scooters to school. We discussed the importance of exercise to be healthy and what body parts we were using when riding our bikes, scooters or skipping.
We also talked about the importance of wearing helmets when riding our bikes and scooters for safety and protecting our heads. This was an interesting conversation as some children felt that if they could ride a bike they didn’t need to wear a helmet. We discussed this further and the reason why you need to wear a helmet even when you can ride a bike.
