Triathlon Day

WE had an amazing day on Wednesday. Martin and Adrian from Triathlon UK came in to set us a challenge: to bike and run as far as a satellite orbiting the Earth 717km away. Did we succeed?

You bet we did! In fact we covered enough distance to get to the satellite and back again, an amazing 1512km in one day. Wow!

Well done kids! And thank you to the teachers who even let the kids have a go on the bikes every now and again . . . .

BIG PEDAL!

Well done to all those kids and mums and dads and carers and teachers who biked and scooted during our big pedal. We had nearly 200 kids each day turning up on 2 wheels every day during the 2 weeks. Wow! PLEASE DON’T STOP!!! Now that you’re in the habit please keep of biking and scooting to school just keep on going – it’s a great way to start your day.

We hoped you liked your wee prizes. with nearly 200 gifts to buy Halfords at Straiton park and our parent partnership were very generous in funding the prizes along with the school.

And the winners of the 2018 big pedal were P3a!! Well done team!IMG_1223

Here’s a wee video of our bike breakfast a couple of week ago during the big pedal:

Tomorrow we have a triathlon day for all of our P3s to P7s in school. 30 bike machines in the hall. cool!

We love the Uni!

Yesterday we had 8 visitors from the uni working with us. Mr Munro, Mr Souden, Miss Kennedy and Miss McGregor from Moray House who have been working with us over the last few Thursdays and then in the afternoon we were joined by Toby, Alex, Joe and Lochlan from the University Frisbee team who came to play and work with the P7s.

Here’s a video of us all out on the astro yesterday afternoon playing football and frisbee in the February sunshine. Lucky kids.
