Water Safety Sessions
As the warmer months and school holidays get nearer it is important to educate children on the dangers of open water and more importantly the methods in which you can save your own life.
That's why DCLT has some exclusive sessions to teach your class the essentials of water safety taking place at Hatfield Outdoor Activity Centre. These sessions are split into 2 area's theory and practice, in the theory session instructors talk and educate about open water, the hazards and different features like lock and weirs. In the practical session, pupils will be able to really find out what it is like to jump into a lake, feel cold water and use some of the safety aids commonly found around our lakes and canals in Doncaster.

There are three Bikeability levels, each designed to improve cycling skills, no matter what is known already. Levels 1, 2 and 3 take trainees from the basics of balance and control, all the way to planning and making an independent journey on busier roads.
At Level 1 new riders learn to control and master their bikes in a space away from traffic such as a playground or closed car park. Trainees will usually be trained in a group of 3-12, though individual training may also be available in your area. At Level 1 you can:
- prepare yourself and your bike for cycling
- get on and off your bike without help
- start off, pedal and stop with control
- pedal along, use gears and avoid objects
- look all around and behind, and control the bike
- share space with pedestrians and other cyclists
Level 2 takes place on local streets, giving trainees a real cycling experience. Trainees learn how to deal with traffic on short journeys such as cycling to school or the local shops. Trainees are usually trained in small groups – up to 6 trainees per instructor – though individual training may also be available. At Level 2 you can:
- prepare for on-road cycling
- start and finish an on-road journey
- recognise typical hazards
- let others know what you are about to do
- know where to ride on the road
- pass parked vehicles and side roads
