Last Thursday, 3 June 2021, it was World Bicycle Day. Mount Lawley Primary School raised awareness through its fortnightly newsletter and the P&C Facebook page. Teachers were also made aware through the Staff Communications Meeting and how bicycles can help foster sustainability.
Ms Kerlin, a year 2 teacher, decided to take advantage of this day and planned several lessons throughout the week, for instance, her students:
- watched a video about the history of bikes;
- created a poster showing a timeline of bikes;
- were involved in a maths lesson and cut out 2D shapes to make a bike, e.g. circles, long rectangles, their chosen shape for the seat, plus they counted vertices and edges; and
- viewed the United Nations website about World Bicycle Day, discussed the benefits of riding a bike and linked it with the Your Move program.
The students learnt many amazing bike facts. A big thank you to Ms Kerlin for sharing her lesson plan with us.
