Sustrans Big Pedal – 22 April to 5th May 2020
Posted: Wed, 11 Mar 2020 16:01
Children at Polehampton Church of England Infant School and Walter Infant School and Nursery won special recognition from Sustrans for their Big Pedal achievements. Children at Wheatfield Primary School increased their active travel from 37% of pupils in February 2019 to 51% during the Big Pedal campaign. Seven schools also took part in the MyJourney active travel spotter sheet competition during the Big Pedal to demonstrate how fun active travel can be, with one school also putting together a walking zone maps, to demonstrate how far you can walk in just 5-10 mins.
This year we will again be encouraging all Wokingham schools to sign-up to this campaign to get active and reduce their carbon footprint on their journey to school. We will be offering pre-campaign presentations to any school that wants one, as well as localised MyJourney Wokingham prizes on top of the Sustrans prizes. The last day of the competition this year will be our big "superhero" day, where we encourage our schools to get children dressing up as super heroes for their journey to school.
