Pedal power was the order of the day at Warden Hill Junior School when students and staff negotiated a giant obstacle course before enjoying a bike breakfast with charity Sustrans.

More than 100 little learners were rewarded with a healthy meal and wheely good smoothies after arriving at school on their bikes and scooters.
Charity spokesman Richard Noon said: “Walking and cycling to school is a great way for our children to get the exercise they need to keep healthy. Research shows it allows them to become better students - and it’s fun too.”
Sustrans is working with 21 schools in Luton to provide children with the skills to take two wheels to school on a regular basis.
Luton Mayor Cllr Sheila Roden addressed assembly and said she was astounded by the number of children taking part.
