The ‘Big Pedal’ was a great success with a majority of the children travelling to school, where possible, by walking, riding bikes or using scooters. The bike shed was full during these 2 weeks and many of the children have continued to travel this way, enjoying the warmer mornings.
During the summer term years 1, 3 and 5 have been participating in Bike-ability sessions, learning about cycling and road safety. They will receive a certificate and badge at the end of their course to celebrate their success.
The school field is now in action again with P.E. sessions already make the most of the extra space and allowing the children to play football during lunchtimes.
The children have also taken part in ‘Walk to School’ week. Data of how the children arrived to school each day was collected.
There has been some improvement into snacks and lunches the children have been bringing to school each day but we would like to continue to improve this with year 6 helping to monitor this as part of their prefect duties.
We still have Borough Olympics and Key stage 1 Cross Country to look forward to before the end of the term as well.
