Mini Wheelers

https://www.miniwheelers.com/

This term we are excited to welcome back Andy from Mini Wheelers!

He is currently running two groups every WEDNESDAY morning. This term's classes have already started, but if you are interested in signing up, please speak to a member of staff and we can book you on to start immediately!

 

LEVEL 1- BALANCE BIKE BEGINNERS is for children aged 2- 4 and is delivered in blocks of 5 sessions. The aim for children in this group is to have fun and gain confidence learning the fundamental skills of cycling using balance bikes as well as developing key motor skills including balance, co-ordination and spatial awareness. Once children can successfully ride a balance bike by lifting their feet up to balance and steer the bike they are then ready to move onto our level 2 course to learn how to use pedals. 

Q: DO I NEED TO BRING A BIKE? Balance bikes provided or use your own.

 

LEVEL 2- TRANSITION TO PEDALS is a 6 week course for children aged 4- 7 and continues the development of gross motor skills and dynamic balance. The main goal is for children to make the transition from balance bike to riding their own pedal bike confidently and safely.

Q: DO I NEED TO BRING A BIKE? Balance bikes provided for the first 3 weeks, children older than 6 please bring a bike with pedals removed to use for this stage, own bikes required week 4 or as advised by coach.

 

LEVEL 3- WHEELERS IN MOTION is the final stage of your child's Mini Wheelers journey as this 4 week course is specifically designed for children who have recently learnt to ride a bike independently. The aim is for children to gain confidence and have fun on their bike whilst improving key riding skills including setting off, handling, braking and cornering, giving you piece of mind that your child will be safe to cycle to school, in parks and off road cycle paths.

 Q: DO I NEED TO BRING A BIKE? Yes own bikes required at all sessions.

Forest School

 

Our forest school session is every THURSDAY afternoon. Children must come to school wearing their forest school clothes (uniform not required) and must come with suitable additional layers for spending the afternoon in forest school in any weather.

We recommend the following:

Puddle Suit

Warm comfortable shoes

(wellies do not keep children's feet warm in cold weather)

A spare change of clothes

(just incase)

Onesie's are a great spare change of clothes for rainy days as they are quick and easy to change into so that children are warm and clean for the journey home!

A plastic bag

(to send home anything muddy!)

 

PLEASE ENSURE EVERYTHING IS CLEARLY LABELLED WITH YOUR CHILD'S NAME SO THAT WE CAN EASILY RETURN ANY MISPLACED ITEMS. THANK YOU.

Topic

Our topic for Autumn Term (second half) is:

'Why do leaves go crispy?'

During the second half term we will be thinking about the seasons and looking at changes all around us. We will be finding out about how animals take care of themselves throughout the cold weather, and be sharing lots of seasonal stories. 

 

Cornerstones Topic Family Learning Suggestion 

Autumn is awesome! Why not go for an autumn walk to play in the leaves? You could also collect natural objects to make a colourful autumnal collage. Alternatively, use recycled materials to make a woodland creature.

Topic

Our topic for Autumn Term (first half) is:

'Do you want to be friends?'

During the first half term we will be learning our friends names in our new class, learning about our families to create a sense of personal identity, and starting to think about what jobs our parents do when we are at school, building up to thinking about what jobs we might like to do when we are older! 

 

Cornerstones Topic Family Learning Suggestion 

Friends are fabulous! Why not create a ‘friends and family tree’ together out of photos? Use different coloured lines to draw links that represent family, friends or acquaintances. You could also create a ‘treasure chest’ out of the things that make you ‘you’. Which possessions couldn’t you cope without? Alternatively, invite friends round for a get-together and discuss memories of happy experiences you have shared.
