Bicycle

Think

  • Where is this bicycle?
  • Why has it been left there?
  • Who does it belong to?
  • Where are they?

Solve

Anne lives two miles from her school. She cycles to and from there every day and it takes her a total of 35 minutes there and back. Her journey home takes five minutes longer as it is up a very steep hill. At what speed does she cycle to school?

Discover

Fact: The most famous cycle race is probably the Tour de France. This race began life in 1903 and has changed a lot since then. The route changes every year but incorporates the Pyrenees and Alps before finishing in Paris.

Question: How many entrants have there been from the UK in the history of the Tour de France? How many have won? Is there a country that has won more times than any other? How many countries have hosted a stage of the race? Make a fact poster about the Tour de France and include a timeline of significant dates.

Respond

Write an acrostic poem using the word ‘bicycle’. Use a favourite bike ride to inspire you, what you might see, what the weather might be like and the sounds you hear form the bike or the surroundings.

Discuss

Litter on beaches is a big problem for coastal towns and dog fouling an even greater one. Why do people leave their rubbish on beaches? Are there enough bins supplied? Should you let your dog foul on the beach? Won’t it just be washed away by the tide? How can the problem be solved easily? What can we all do to make our beaches safer and cleaner?
