Reception Bike Workshop

On Wednesday 1st May, Reception children enjoyed a visit from Kayla Owen’s father, Paul Owen, who came to show us his Honda off-road racing bike! Mr Owen told the children all about his bike, which does a top speed of 65mph. We were astonished to hear that, when racing, Mr Owen does jumps of about 20ft high (that’s about the height of a tree!) whilst travelling a distance of about 100ft (about the length of six buses!!). The children loved seeing Mr Owen sitting astride his bike and modelling the various riding positions, and we, of course, learned the importance of always wearing a safety helmet!
