Class on a bike is in session

Class on a bike by Gallivant

Fun sheets for families to exercise, learn and explore on their bikes.

 

 

Whilst we all remain in lock down due to the swine Covid-19 virus, I am sure, like our family, you're either running lout of ideas, or simply looking for new ones, to keep the kids entertained whilst also trying to stimulate their brains educationally.

 

We put our heads together - from a suitable social distance - and came up with the idea of Class on a bike. A way to make the most of your daily exercise outing by combining a family ride with a learning experience.

 

We have created loads of fun sheets based on topics loosely studied between key stage 1-3. However, being outside and practical they are much more fun and engaging than a school, or dare I say it, home lesson. Every sheet has a topic, challenges, things to find, things to discuss, ideas of where to go and a question to answer with a bit of web based research. 

 
 

We will be loading more and more topics both here and on our Class on a bike Facebook group. Here are some examples for you to get stuck into right now. All you need to do is jump on your bicycles.

 

// Bridges

This is mainly an observation class which covers physics, history, art, maths and even a little engineering, if you're feeling brave. The challenge is to find and cycle to bridges in your local area.

// Perspective

This is an art class where we look at perspective and learn about what it means and how we use it art and photography.
