The Big Pedal 2017

Dear Parents/Carers,

Get set… we’re taking part in The Big Pedal 2017, the UK’s largest inter-school cycling and scooting challenge that inspires pupils, staff and parents to choose two wheels for their journey to school.

The challenge runs from 20 to 31 March. It’s free to enter and we would love everyone to be involved.

The details

On each day of the challenge schools compete to see who can record the greatest number of pupils, staff and parents cycling or scooting to school. Our best 5 days will determine our final position in the challenge. We’ll be competing against other schools right across the UK, and if we clock up the most bike and scooter journeys we’ll win!

Why we’re taking part

It’s a great way to get more of our pupils travelling to school on their bikes and scooters. We will be competing to become one of the UK’s top schools for two-wheeled journeys and will be in with a chance to win prizes including bike and scooter stunt shows and fantastic cycle and scooter storage.

What’s next?

All you need to do is encourage your child(ren) to cycle or scoot to school every day during the event, and join them on their way – parent and sibling journeys count too!

For more information about the event go to www.bigpedal.org.uk

Competition time

We are running a competition in school and would like as many children to take part as possible. We would like children to design a bike or scooter with special capabilities for Batman to use. Entries can be done on A4 paper, a google slides or google drawings. Once completed hand them in to Mrs Goliger by Wednesday 29th March 2017. There will be a prize for FS2/KS1 and KS2. Winners will be announced in assembly on Friday 31st March 2017.

Please get in touch if you have any questions.

Enjoy the ride!

Mrs Goliger
