Cycle to School week 2021
On a more positive note, many children do understand the benefits of active travel …
40% of pupils thought more people walking, cycling or scooting to school was the best way to bring down levels of air pollution near their school- the highest ranking answer.
“We must make it easier, safer and more enjoyable for children to walk, cycle, or scoot to school, so they can be more active for their health and wellbeing, connect with others and foster a sense of community, and help to reduce air pollution for the sake of their health, and the planet.”
Xavier Brice, CEO at Sustrans
We started our Cycle to School week with a bikers breakfast. Cycling to school really burns off calories and makes you really hungry!!
Our year 6 pupils are working with the Bikeability team to make sure they stay safe on the roads.
Our Year 3 pupils are undertaking their pedestrian training to make sure they have a good understanding of road safety.
Bling your Bike
To celebrate the end of Cycle to school week we held a Bling your bike competition. We asked parents and carers to help children to decorate their bikes. There were some amazing entries. The Mayor of South Tyneside, Pat Hay, judged the competition for children in EYFS and Key stage One.Our chair of governors, Mr Newham,judged our Key stage Two competition. Well done to the winners and everyone who took part.
