Big Pedal 2021

Sustrans Big Pedal - Sustrans.org.ukThis year, as always, the school will be taking part in the Big Pedal, the Sustrans national competition to get everyone moving – cycling, scooting and walking.

Below you will find a video and information sheet.

This year will be a little bit different as we are asking children to bring their bike or scooter on alternate days.  Please see the timetable below for your child’s days.

Tues 20th April P1,P3 and P4

Wed 28th April P1,P3 and P4
Thur 29th April P2,P5,P6,P7
Fri 30th April P1,P3 and P4

There are only a few simple rules –

all children must wear a helmet on a bike

bikes and scooters should be wheeled through the playground on the way in and out of school and on the ashy path.

Parents and younger siblings are welcome to join in the challenge.

Each child will get a chance to cycle or scoot with their friends in the playground during the day.

We would ask that you check over bikes and scooters to make sure they are safe to use, especially if they haven’t been used for a while.

Please don’t worry if your child is unable to bring their bike or scooter on any of their days.  Walking counts too!

We are all looking forward to the Big Pedal. It should be lots of fun.

P4M & P4H Home Learning – 8th March

Hi P4,

We hope you are having a great weekend with your family. We are hopefully going into our last week of home learning! Have a look at the 8th March Timetable to see what your learning for this week looks like. The lessons highlighted in green are live meetings with your teacher or P3-4 Assembly.  It would be great if you could join us. The lessons highlighted in yellow are recorded by one of the P4 teachers. The lessons highlighted in blue have links to videos.

Remember to check-in on the Check-in post, leave a compliment for the Pupil of the Day, read then complete the tasks and ask your teacher for help at any point during the school day (9.00-3.15pm). Take regular breaks away from your laptop/tablet and do something active to raise your heart rate. Use the Chill-out Zone to catch up with your classmates but don’t spend too long there.

Please carefully the instructions in each task and complete the task to the best of your ability. Once you have received feedback, please read it to see what you have done well and what your next steps are. Ask your teacher for help/advice because that is what we are here for! We are very impressed with all of your effort and work so far, so please keep it up!

Next week is British Science Week and we have suggested many tasks and experiments for you to try out. Please read the post on Teams or read this: Science Week – What you might need

Thank you,
