Students will create a SMART goal related to Way2Go Bike Ed.
Students will identify appropriate bike riding clothing and accessories and explain the benefits of their use.
Health & Physical Education
Year 3/4 - ACPPS033
Year 3/4 - ACPPS036
Year 5/6 - ACPPS054
Plan and practise strategies to promote health, safety and wellbeing
Personal and social capability
Critical and creative thinking
E.g. General: My goal is to be able to control my bike when riding
SMART: My goal in to be able to control my bike when riding in a straight line within three weeks.
Consider having more capable students investigate local facilities and riding groups that may support them to achieve their goal (H & PE Yr 7/8 - Investigate and select strategies to promote health, safety and wellbeing ACPPS073).
Last night I was really excited about being allowed to ride to school this morning. It’s my goal to do it every Wednesday. Today I got up late because nobody woke me up! I was in such a rush to get ready it time and I couldn’t find one clean pair of socks in the mountain of laundry… garh! Then my big sister moved my homework from the kitchen table to eat breakfast so I was searching the house frantically looking for it to put it in my bag... Grr! And then to top it off my helmet was in the shed and dad took the keys to work so I couldn’t get it out. So mum said “not today” and made me go in the car with her. I was so disappointed.
E.g. Closed in footwear, laced tucked in so it doesn’t get caught on the chain.
Ask them what else they need to bring
E.g. Water, to stay hydrated
Asthma puffer, so I can use it if I need to
Students may believe that they need to wear a hat underneath their helmet for sun safety. Clarify that they will not need to wear a hat whilst riding their bike and that they will find out why when they learn about helmets.
E.g. I’ll clip my helmet to my school bag the night before so I don’t forget to bring it.
Students who finish early can complete 'Bikes - My thoughts' on pg 4 - 5.
Use this task as opportunity to develop students science inquiry skills.
Students may assume that wearing bright reflective clothing will means others will see them. Clarify that it is more likely they will be seen, and that safe behaviour is just as important. If students own bright clothing encourage them to wear it if they are riding their bike to school.
Complete in class work and discuss the ready to ride plan with parent/caregiver
