Thank you to everyone who took part in the Big Pedal this year. As always, Fellside performed strongly, finishing 102nd out of 494 schools in the ‘Small Primaries 5 Day Challenge’ category. We were the best performing Gateshead school and sit a very proud 7th place in terms of participating schools from the North East of England. We are delighted!
As well as participating in the national competition itself, we also ran our own intra-school contest, with a prize for the class that completed the most journeys to and from school by bike or scooter during Big Pedal Fortnight. Congratulations to Year 2 children who were awarded this accolade in our assembly of 11th May. Impressively, this is the 3rd time this class has won the intra-school competition, winning both in 2016 (when in Reception), and again in 2017 (when in Year 1). What an amazing group of children they are!
