Andy from Auckland Transport came to Sunnyhills School this week to teach us how to scooter safely.
There are 2 very important things we need to wear when we are riding a scooter. 1. A helmet (that fits) 2. Shoes You know your helmet is put on correctly when you remember the rule 2, 4, 1. 2 - you have to have only a 2 finger space between your eyebrows and the start of your helmet 4 - there should be 4 straps around your ears 1 - only 1 finger should fit between your chin and the strap of your helmet.
The Travelwise leaders came around and checked that our helmets were all on correctly.
We were put into groups to practice different scooter skills such as emergency stop, braking and what to do when going over a pedestrian crossing.
Here we are practicing our scooter skills!
We all had such a great time at scooter training!
