Year 6 at WMS have again been involved in fantastic cycling sessions with Richard Rothwell, using the School Sports Premium money to help deliver the high quality activities. Pupils are challenged on half and full day rides across Northumberland and North Tyneside, with the latest outing on the Tynemouth loop of 35km!

WMS Teacher, Mr Robinson commented: "Richard provides a high quality service, using top-end bikes in his fleet, which means that our pupils are having a fantastic experience. Richard loves his cycling and really knows the sport inside out. He passes down his experience and knowledge to both pupils and staff and is trying to develop a lifelong love of the sport that pupils can use for the rest of their lives."

Year 5 pupils will be invited to take part in similar sessions after Christmas, where I am sure there will be a big take-up on the offer of great bike rides.
