As part of National Clean Air Day, some of Belper's Town Councillors and the Mayor came in today to work with the Year 2 and Year 3 children. They encouraged the children to think about ways to keep our air clean, ways such as walking to school, giving the car a rest and planting more trees.

National Bike Week 

8th- 16th June 2019

https://www.cyclinguk.org/bikeweek

Bike Week is a great opportunity to celebrate the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling.

Our aim is to get many more people across the UK to give cycling a try, encouraging people to get out on their bikes between Saturday 8 June to Sunday 16 June 2019.

Any outing on a bike counts – whether that’s nipping round to a friend's house, cycling to work or school, enjoying a leisurely ride with the family or tackling a cycling challenge.

Cycling has many benefits and is enjoyed in many different ways, the important thing is to get outside and enjoy a ride!

Be part of the UK’s awareness-raising week for cycling by:
  • Taking part in an event or activity near you
  • Organising a bike ride for colleagues
  • Taking your kids to school by bike
  • Sharing your cycling experiences online

TRAVEL SMART WEEK 

20th- 24th May 2019 

As part of our Travel Smart campaign for 20 to 24 May 2019, we are encouraging pupils to put their words in motion and choose more active and environmentally friendly ways to travel smart to school.

As part of the week, you can follow some suggested themes for each day, such as a Two wheeled Tuesday, where pupils can travel by any form of people powered wheels.

Other suggestions include holding a "travel together" day to encourage pupils to make journeys with others – either by car sharing or walking with their friends.

Pupils can also create calligrams to illustrate the different active ways you can make a journey to school and to share their ideas with us by asking an adult to send a photo or drawing to Mrs Newton. The best pictures/photographs will be shared on the website and Twitter page. 

Journey to School

As a school, we would like you to consider your journey to school which could help reduce traffic congestion and improve the safety of our children. Please see the Travel map and bus route  below for ideas on how to do this.
