Bling Your Bike Day

This week, Jayne from Go Smarter School's Engagement came in to talk to the children about everything we have planned this year to promote cycling, scooting and walking to school. It was so exciting, from teaching our younger children to ride their bikes and bike skills, to cycle maintenance and cycling trips further afield.

One event we are really looking forward to is 'Bling Your Bike 'Day, on Friday 7th December where we invite children across the Federation to decorate their bike or scooter in a festive manner. There will be prizes for the best entries and we will take part in a grand parade in the afternoon.

We have encouraged the children to think creatively and use materials they would find around the house such as old cardboard boxes, left-over wrapping paper and tinsel/ decorations for their designs. We have emphasised to them that nothing new need be purchased. In fact, we will be looking for the creative use of 'recycling' in their designs when judging the winners in keeping with the eco-friendly theme of the day.

We hope your child enjoys this event- the first of many to encourage sustainable travel to and from our Federation.
