Walk to School Week 2020

Are you up for the challenge?

On Monday the 5th of October we will be taking part in the walk to school five-day challenge. We challenge you to walk, cycle, scoot or park and stride to school every day for one week.

This year Living Streets are asking us to join them this coming week in celebrating the incredible physical and mental health benefits walking brings to every individual.

Strong hearts, healthy bones, increased muscle strength are all well-documented outcomes of walking, but the benefits for the mind are just as powerful. Increased sense of calm and self-esteem, time to connect with friends, family and the natural world, awakened creativity and improved overall cognitive function, phew! All that makes for a happy, healthy child set up for success in and out of the classroom!

Every pupil will be given a fun activity diary to record their journeys, daily stickers for the pupils that have taken part and badges which will be awarded at the end of the week for pupils who have taken part throughout the week.

We hope to see as many of you as possible taking part next week.
