Youngsters jumped on their bikes and scooters for the school run as part of a fun initiative.

Children at Pocklington Community Junior School decorated their bikes and scooters in the theme of Christmas, which were judged by three pupils. The two lucky winners received a stack of prizes.

Pupils received a hot drink when they arrived at school.

The Santa Cycle is an initiative designed to encourage active travel to school during the winter period. All year groups were invited to take part in the fun and festive morning.

The event was hosted by Steve Wigley from East Riding Council who has been working at the school to promote cycling and scooting to school as healthy, fun and sustainable ways to travel.
