Our Bike It Crew worked tirelessly for two whole weeks trying to promote safe and sustainable travel to school. The Bike It Crew provided students with an assembly on safety tips, how to complete an ‘M’ check and gave reasons as to why sustainable methods of transport are crucial in reducing your carbon footprint. The students did a fantastic job of sharing their passion for cycling with others and as a result, our number of students cycling to school increased significantly. Over the course of The Big Pedal competition we did have some beautiful sunny weather which no doubt contributed to our great score too – we ended up being South East Regional Winners and overall we came 7th nationally! Well done to everyone involved!
Over the next week, winners of the daily competitions we ran during The Big Pedal will also be shared. The Bike It Crew created 10 fabulous competitions for all of our Discovery students to enter, including a wordsearch, hangman, a spot the difference, a debate and a quiz. They also shared this fantastic video on how to check your bike is safe to ride:
The big competition, where students could win a goodie bag that included a set of lights, a backpack, waterproof backpack cover, new bell and snap band, remains open until the last day of term. The competition was to ‘create a bike of the future’. All entries must be posted in the finance post box on the Maths corridor, or handed to Mrs Thornton. The winner will be announced after half term. Good luck!
