PUPILS put the wheels in motion for their cycling training at a biker’s breakfast.

More than 60 pupils from Bishop Wood School and around 10 from nearby Goldfield School turned up with their bikes on Wednesday, April 6.

Teacher and health coordinator Janet Reeve said: “They had a brilliant time. They were really enthusiastic and they loved the breakfast.”

The pupils had hotdogs, cereal, brioche and fruit juice and they learnt bike skills on the playground and did an endurance exercise on the school field.

Police also turned up to talk in assembly.

Mrs Reeve said: “We want them to appreciate it is another way to come which is healthy. We want to promote safety as well.

“It is really good to do exercise before school because it gets their brains working and sets them up for the day.

“It is all supporting our development plan to persuade children to come to school without using the car.

“I am really grateful to the parents for the preparation of the breakfast and clearing up.”
