World Bicycle Day!

If you have a bike, can you get out somewhere today for a bike ride to celebrate? Where will you go? 

I have found the history of bicycles so interesting! I cannot believe that someone cycled around the world over 100 years ago - he would have needed such resilience!

What is the most interesting thing that you have found out today? Did you family like their spy names?

Look at Isla's sunflower - it now measures 1.97m which is taller than me! Amazing!

    Hi everyone! I loved my spy name! My mum's spy name is soooo weird. If you were a spy what name would you give your self? I think I would give myself the name LIGHTING FUDGE It may sound weird but I can't think of anything otherwise! My sunflower has nearly got it's whole flower out! so exciting! Hope you are all well

    Hi Mr G, I might be getting a tortoise soon! I haven't been watching it as much as i would like to so i haven't seen any yet but i will keep you updated. Today we made homemade elderflower cordial and it tastes so good. If I can i might be able to get some for you.

    Hi Mr G, I never knew that it was world bicycle day today. Th most interesting fact that I found out was that bicycles were introduced to Europe in the late 19th century. I never knew that someone had cycled around the world more than 100 years ago, yes he must of had a lot of resilience especially if they did not have as good bikes as we do now. Erin.

    Hi Luke! I saw an advert for Sky Nature and I guessed what it was instantly - my wife wondered how I knew :) Elderflower cordial sounds delightful. I bet you enjoyed that. You are being so creative with your baking, cooking and potion making! Impressive!

    Hello Erin! I didn't even know there was a World Bicycle Day either but I am glad that I did find out. I cannot believe the first bikes were made out of wood and without pedals - how strange! Like you said, cycling around the world would be impressive now let alone 100 years ago on a penny farthing! How was half term? Update me tomorrow!
