Bearwood Pupils walk through time
Pupils at Bearwood Primary School took part in a special, themed walk to school on 7th July and were treated to a special assembly, to celebrate their success during Walk to School Week. The school managed to get 70% of their 279 pupils walking to school during Walk to School Week.
Pupils walked from Winnersh Community Centre to the school in the company of Sir Baskeville Old Face, who talked to them about travelling to school. During the assembly, Sir Baskeville put on a special show all about walking through the ages. Pupil volunteers helped him demonstrate how Alfred the Great fooled the Vikings by walking out of an impenetrable swamp; how a particularly skilled pirate beat her opponent because she had spent more time exercising than he had; and how a World War 1 soldier managed to save his comrades by running and telling them about a German soldier who had got into their trench.
The final lesson was that walking is good for bodies and good for brains.
Well done Bearwood!
