Mrs Burrage is one of our amazing teachers here at Lakelands Primary. During Term 1 Mrs Burrage was teaching her class about bike safety. In this particular lesson Mrs Burrage had a focus of wearing a helmet and how it helps to protect our heads if we were to have an accident. She used hard boiled eggs to represent a persons head, one egg had a helmet (cardboard egg cup) and the other had no helmet at all. The year 1 students then moved outside to observe what would happen if we had an accident wearing a helmet and not wearing a helmet. The students compared what happened with each egg and quickly learnt that a helmet helps to protect our heads when riding and in their words “ you can’'t see their brains”. We are very lucky here at Lakelands Primary to have so many wonderful teachers promoting Your Move and teaching our students how to travel safely.

Mrs. Burrage sounds like a school legend! Her class activity has earned you 15 points, plus a bonus 15 for the innovative idea of breaking eggs which clearly got the kids' attention.

What a fantastic, practical lesson for the kids on why it's so important to wear a helmet when riding their bikes or scooters. (Amy just watch copy and pasting text from MS Word, as sometimes it copies over the formatting - which can either change the font, or even make the page glitchy! If your on a mac put it into Text Edit & choose "make plain text" then copy and paste the plain text in. if you're on Windows use Notepad to do the same. cheers Trevor :)
