Over the past term, Key Stage 3 have been improving our cycling skills, both at school and at Gateway Wheelers in Chester Le Street. Therefore, on Tuesday 13th June 2017 we had a Cycle Celebration Day’, for the whole school to participate in.
We arranged for lots of different adapted bikes to come in, which allowed all pupils the opportunity to ride a bike. Key Stage 3 also invited parents to come and use the adapted bikes with their child. This was lots of fun seeing the pupils enjoy time with their family.
We had 3sixty bike stunt team from Durham come and perform a show for us. They were on their bikes jumping from vans, over metal bars and even over staff! 3sixty also gave some coaching lessons to pupils on bikes and trikes.
Lastly, we had Craig Heap, an Olympic Gold Medallist join in the events and give a motivational talk to pupils and show off his gold medals.
It was a fantastic day and all pupils had lots of fun joining in the range of different cycling activities.
As part of the world book day celebration 2017 we set ourselves the challenge of outdoor learning. Each story was carefully selected to have an outdoor theme and we were out as much as possible.
