A letter has been sent home with your child as a reminder that next week is Walk to School Week. It gives suggestions as to how to make the most of this special week as well as reminders of the benefits walking brings to both health and the environment. This year, instead of cards and stickers being used to record how children travel to and from school, each class has a wall chart to record the data. As usual children will receive a certificate at the end of the week for taking part.
It is hoped that as many parents as possible will leave their cars at home, however sometimes driving cannot be avoided. In order to include as many children as possible, parents are encouraged to Park and Stride – park safely away from the shool and walk the remaining distance.
