Walk to School

We had a visit from a representative from Living Streets which is UK charity for everyday walking.  Their mascot, Strider came along too and they took part in a whole school assembly.

We learnt some interesting facts such as:

Did you know a generation ago, 70% of us walked to school – now it’s less than half?

We are taking part in

WOW – THE YEAR-ROUND WALK TO SCHOOL CHALLENGE
Pupils record how they get to school on the WOW Travel Tracker and those who walk once per week for a month are rewarded with a themed badge.

For children who live further away from school, they can take part in

PARK AND STRIDE – park the car a ten minute walk away from school and complete the journey on foot.
