Rebecca: On Monday 16th of April to Friday 20th April Team Rubicon came to Burton

school to teach us about safety with scooters and skateboards. The Team Rubicon

instructor was called Sam. He could do many tricks, making them look very easy to do,

but they weren’t!


Holly: Sam firstly taught KS1 how to ride a scooter safely and he showed them a

number of cool tricks. He then taught KS2 how to ride a

skateboard safely and he did a number of tricks for us.


Bethany: We would like to say thank you to Team Rubicon for

coming but also to Mrs Slater for organising it, it was very funny.
