Well done to P2B for recording the most active travel journeys to and from school for the month of May. As a 'Gold Sustrans' school we actively promote as much active travel as we can and our delighted with how many classes take part in the Interclass Active Travel Competition.

Can P2B hold onto the trophy after May's results?

Sustrans - Final Home Activity

A message from Dave Wiggins, our Sustran's Officer;

Hello there!

First of all a massive congratulations to all staff, parents and most importantly pupils of Waringstown Primary School for achieving the Sustrans Gold Award. Your hard work over the past four years has really paid off.

The final activity I will be sending out this year is called ‘Routes To School’ and is designed to get you and your family thinking about how they will travel to school in September.

Maybe they have been walking and cycling more and enjoying it or maybe Mum/Dad/Carer will be working from home more and have more flexibility around travelling to and from school.

Here is a link to the introductory YouTube video

The worksheet is attached.

Could I also ask, if you have a minute, could you complete this short survey for some feedback? The school may win a small prize....

I hope you have a restful summer.

Warm regards,

Dave

Sustrans - 'Cycling Skills' Home Activity

This week I have developed a short video and a simple worksheet showing two key cycling skills. These skills are ‘Figure of Eight’ and ‘Slow Cycling’.

These skills are key for the whole family and families could learn them together and have fun.

The worksheet is attached and here is a link to the YouTube video https://youtu.be/2QH-yNutmKA with me showing the skills.

There is also a link to the video on the worksheet.
