The Big Pedal Starts on Monday 3rd March

Get set … the Big Pedal starts on Monday!

If you are taking part this is what you have to do.

Ride your bike or scooter to school wearing your helmet. When you arrive at school walk your wheels to the storage facilities and lock them up. If the storage is full you will be able to walk your wheels and store them outside your classroom.

You can earn house points for your team as well as points towards the school’s big pedal results!

Enjoy the ride!

The Big Pedal 2014 - 3-14 March

The Big Pedal is a giant inter-school cycling and scooting competition that encourages children, teachers and parents to choose two wheels for their school journeys.

This year’s competition will span 10 school days, from 3 to 14 March, and the more children who scoot and cycle each day, the more points your school will earn. Schools right across the UK will be competing against each other, and the competition is weighted according to the size of the school, so everyone has a fair chance to win.

There are more than 20 fantastic prizes up for grabs, including bike and scooter stunt displays, children’s bikes, scooter parking and more!

This year’s event features new and souped-up versions of the popular wheelie characters – there are 10 to collect, one for each day of the event. Each day we will log the school’s daily result on the Big Pedal website and will be rewarded with a wheelie to add to your own Big Pedal wallchart. The characters’ design will depend on the number of people who cycled and scooted that day, and the aim is to fill the wallchart with as many super-strength, super-powered, superhero wheelies as possible!

BBC Radio 2 Writing Competition 500 Words

Do you get bored during the school holidays?

Are you eager to learn more?

Are you hungry for a challenge?

See if you can write a story in 500 words. It can be a story about anything you like, love, comedy, horror or mystery, it’s completely up to you, the only rule is that you use 500 words. Not 499 or 501 just 500 words. This competition has been launched by Chris Evans at BBC Radio 2. There are lots of reasons to enter 500 words. You could win Chris Evans height in books (1.9 metres) or hear your story read by a superstar narrator live on the radio to millions of people. But the most important reason is to write a brilliant story. The judges want to read what you come up with, and they absolutely promise to read EVERY SINGLE ONE.

If you would like to enter this competition then return your entry to Mrs Nicholls on 24th February.

Good Luck!
