Key Stage 2 Resource Materials Introduction The resources in this education pack have been taken from the Transport for London ‘Curriculum Focus on Cycling Key Stage 2’ document and adapted by Norfolk Children’s Services PE, Sport and Physical Development Team to support the Tour of Britain in Norfolk on 16 September 2010. It has been designed to help your school promote and encourage pupils to ride their bicycles more often and more safely. It is hoped that the resources contained within this pack will give pupils greater cycling insight and enthusiasm to get on their bikes whilst celebrating the Tour of Britain. The schools information pack is divided into a number of sections covering several aspects of the curriculum allowing teachers to adopt a cross curricular approach. The activities included can support a school’s step towards reaching: • School Travel plan targets • Becoming a sustainable school • Healthy Schools Award • Every Child Matters objectives The lesson activities are suggested material that teachers might like to use as starting points within a particular subject or unit of work. They can form part of the long term curricular or can be used as a focus during the Tour if Britain week from 11 to 18 September.

Bicycle Memories

“The Way Things Used To Be”

Ivy Goffin My first bike was a Hercules. It was black as bicycles were not really in colours in those days I paid £3 brand new which was very expensive as I only got paid 8 shillings a week. There are 20 shillings to every pound so you can see in comparison today bicycles were much more expensive to buy in the 1930s. We used to enjoy cycling to Sea Palling and Hemsby every week and we would pay a shop keeper in Hemsby 3 pennies to look after our bikes while we went down to the beach. They were kept safe and kept in a special bike stand. When I married we bought a tandem and my husband and I used to regularly bike to Great Yarmouth. I always used to ride on the back seat until one day when my husband caught me right proper. We were going over the bridge at Wroxham and he happened to look behind and caught me red handed with my legs up while I was reading a tupenny novel. He made me get off my bike and ride in front, he never let me do that again.

Bicycle Memories

Kathleen Birchmore (Philadelphia House) My first bicycle was a black Raleigh it cost £8 and was top of the range. My boyfriend bought it for me for my birthday and my heart skipped a beat as he rolled it into my yard just as if it was a piece of paper. We used to bike for hours and go for picnics at the beach in the countryside in fact wherever we could, distance didn’t matter in those days. Mum would make a flask of hot tea to take and we would drink it even when it was cold. I was with the most generous and kind man i ever met , I don’t know if he is still alive but I never forgot him. I remember once we had been gone for hours on a bike ride we had found a river with a rope swing and had become so engrossed in this we forgot the time my father called the police out and they began a search, needless to say Mum and Dad were furious I was in loads of trouble and I got a good telling off for my actions.

Bicycle Memories

“My Memories� 1934

Audrey Russell Philadelphia House I remember my first bicycle was a school bicycle, you used to be able to buy a bicycle from the school attended at a reduced rate of half a crown so you had transport to get you to your first job. It was black and had 3 gears also it had a large basket on the front, I soon got rid of the basket through. I used to bike from Horsford everyday and would regularly bike to Great Yarmouth or Cromer. I remember once my bike breaking on the Acle straight and I had to walk all the way home, It nearly finished me for good. The posh people all had Raleigh bicycles.
