We were fortunate on Friday morning when the Tour de Yorkshire once again passed by our school. Just like last year, the whole school went outside to watch the women's race zoom past. We went outside at 9.45 (the rain having mercifully stopped minutes before!) with musical instruments and flags. We had a great time, cheering on the support vehicles and police bikes (one even drove along giving high-fives to the children!), before the riders themselves shot past a few minutes later. The atmosphere was fantastic and it was a great whole school experience. Because of road closures for the men's race, we shut the school early which enabled as many of our children as possible to watch the men's race in the afternoon and to enjoy the carnival atmosphere on main street!
