Gavin Con came with his assistant Becky to decorate some cupcakes with the junior and senior rooms. We produced some beautiful creations and it was an added bonus that they were edible too!!

Bike to Brunch

On Wednesday 14th June, we all went for a long cycle around Urhan. It was about 6km in length. Some of our Mums and teachers came with us too. We all wore our hi-vis vests and helmets and made sure that we had  gone through our safety rules. Those who weren’t able to cycle, helped out back at school getting the brunch ready. When we returned, we had sausages, chicken goujons, chips and wedges . We followed that with a fruit smoothie. Later on we designed tour of Urhan jerseys’. We also learned about how bikes have changed over time and designed bikes for the future.



‘I went for a cycle with the school. I was a bit scared at first, but I did not fall off my bike. Then it was fine.I went past my Nan’s house and I saw my neighbour. I passed my house and going down the hill was scary. After that we got back to school.’
