Monday 17th May is the start of WALK TO SCHOOL WEEK 2021
This years theme: WALKING SUPERPOWERS
This year’s challenge will focus on the walking superpowers that benefit individuals, communities and the planet.
Each day pupils will be introduced to a brand new ‘Walking Superpower’
Aim to walk to or from school every day to gain a walking badge.
Why are we doing this?
Walking has so many benefits from physical to mental wellbeing; aiding concentration and creativity and creating safer, less polluted and more welcoming streets. All that makes for a happy, healthy child set up for success in and out of the classroom.
Earth Day in Reception class 2021
We focused on plastic pollution.
