On your marks, get set …… GO! We are planning to participate in the Sustrans Big Pedal 2021, the UK’s largest inter-school cycling, walking and scooting challenge. We shall take part from 26 – 30 April and are looking to have as many of us as possible from Smithton Primary School to be involved.
On each day of the challenge, schools compete to see who can record the greatest number of pupils, staff and parents who either cycle, scoot or walk to school. By taking part, our school will enter a draw to win some great prizes!
The Big Pedal 2021 is a great way to get more of our pupils travelling actively to school and is a simple way to boost their physical and mental health. It is also a good chance for us to help our pupils to understand the importance of environmentally-friendly travel.
Throughout the week, pupils will be given the chance to take part in some ‘Scoot-a-thons’ in our playground.
All you need to do is encourage your child(ren) to cycle, walk or scoot to school on as many days as possible during next week, and if you can, join them on their way.
Please remind your children about bicycle safety, including the use of a helmet.
Let’s have fun and get active together!
