Children at Heronswood Primary School got on their bikes yesterday to create their very own fruit smoothies, blended by the energy they created.

 

Attached to the front of the specially adapted bike sat a food blender and every time the children peddled they created enough energy for the blender to kick start into life.  The faster the children cycled the more energy they created and the more the blender chopped up the fruit that had been added. 

The children had a selection of fruit to choose from, for their smoothies, including bananas, strawberries, oranges and kiwis.   Tesco Express on Spennells sponsored the event and kindly donated the fruit to the school. 

Twenty eight youngsters, from across the school, took part in the bike challenge as a reward for having 100% attendance for the whole of this academic year; September 2104 to June 2015.   

Mrs Pierpoint, Head of School said, “High attendance is so important for our children.  Missing one day from school can create gaps in learning that can take years to rectify.  The bike challenge was a fun way for our children to celebrate their 100% attendance but it also gives a clear message about the importance of a healthy lifestyle.  We are very grateful to The Glades and Tesco for enabling this event to happen.”
