The Big Pedal – DAY 10

#TheBigPedal – DAY 10.

A huge THANK YOU to everyone that took part in The Big Pedal.

It has been amazing to see so many families taking part.

Today we had a staggering 49% of our pupils race, as well as 42 supporters – which included a pregnant mum (recorded as 2 supporters!) and a dog wearing a green school jumper named Dunston!!!

A special mention goes out to the Crawfords – 9 of them raced – 3 generations and a dog. Fantastic!

Mr Clutterbuck cycled 225km (approx 140 miles) during the Big Pedal to and from school. Well Done!

The winning class from both KS1 and KS2 will be going to Decoy Park to have a picnic, play games, play in the park and have an ice cream for the afternoon thanks to Martin Burrows & Sustrans.

So the winners…..

KS1 Winners – CHAFFINCHES 2 with 198 points
KS2 Winners – PUFFINS 3 with 226 points

Well done to everyone who took part!!

Most importantly to all the mums and dads, grandparents and carers who supported our school in The Big Pedal – that extra time on your journey each day, carrying the scooters home after drop off, leaving the cars at home, or parking them at Decoy Park – we noticed a huge drop in the congestion on Deer Park Road; so for that, Thank you.

Don’t forget – you can get passes to park at Decoy Country Park for free during the school runs.

Pudsey and Blush

On Friday 15th November 2013 Decoy School took part in the BBC Children in Need Appeal.  We raised almost £450 by having a non school uniform day.  We were able to wear what we liked to school in return for a donation to the appeal.  What fun we had looking at pupils and teachers alike coming to school in their pyjamas, dressed up in ‘onesies’  or even dressed as super heroes!

During the day, we took part in many different themed activities including mask making.

Mr Swift wore his pyjamas and Mallards 4 had lots of fun creating some stunning Pudsey and Blush masks.
