The Patter Of Tiny Feet

with one comment

May 18-23 2008 is Walk to School Week. The Walk to School campaign asks parents, pupils and teachers to think about their journey to and from school and the many benefits of making it on foot. Walk to School is promoted jointly by ACTTravelwise and Living Streets, and is now in its 13th year, with each year’s campaign having its own theme. Previous years have focused on the benefits of walking on health and independence. This year’s theme will link with Noise Action Week, by exploring the links between noise and walking to school.

In addition, take a look at the Every Journey Matters website which contains games, quizzes, competitions and a host of facts about how children around the world get to school, as well as KS2 lesson plans on the theme of sustainable transport.

  1. Gosh! That came round quickly.

    Funnily, my son asked me if we could walk home from school tonight. We live quite a distance from school. It’s doable, but only on nights when they have no out-of-school activities that they need to get to by a certain time.

    Great websites there. I will show the kids tomorrow.
