But that didn't put off determined children from Dereham Church Infant School from proving how healthy and safety conscious they are as they took part in a county-wide scheme to cut down on traffic congestion.
Jam Busters proved a big hit among the children, who walked, cycled and rode their scooters to school and competed to see which class was the most 'green.'
During a special assembly on Monday, there was a big cheer from the Red Class as they were announced as the winners, achieving almost a 90pc rate of healthy ways of getting to school.
