The current year 3, 5 and 6 peddled scooted and walked to school as many times as they could and won themselves a treat courtesy of the charity Sustrans who have been working closely with the school to promote sustainable ways of travel and positive attitudes among young people and their families. Treat day finally came around and year 5 and 6 kick started the day with a bike ride from school to Chopwell woods, where they took part in some off road activities, and rode back to school again. The heavy rain did not dampen spirits and in fact, it contributed to the amount of mud involved which made it more fun for everyone!
In the afternoon. year 3 enjoyed a nature walk and investigation in the surrounding local fields. Amongst other activities, they took part in a bug hunt, a colour search and a leaf trail. The children enjoyed collecting pieces of nature and using all of their senses to describe the local area.
Everyone finished the day with a well deserved ice cream! yum yum!
A huge Thank you to Alison Litherland from Sustrans for organising the treats for our classes. The children have thoroughly embraced the experiences they have had through the bike scheme and the bike shed is rarely empty these days! We look forward to this years challenge… Bring it on!
A HUGE big Thank you also goes out to all those lovely parents and carers who volunteered… without you, these things really can not happen! Well done and Thank you again!
