This week is National Walk to School Week when all around the country we encourage people to walk to school. Walking to school has lots of benefits for children and adult's health. It is good exercise so it is good for your heart, and for your fitness level. It is good for the environment because it means less pollution in the air which means the air is cleaner and that is better for everyone's lungs. It's good for the planet too. It's good for mental health and wellbeing too. And there's lots to notice and talk about on a walk to school so it's great for learning as well.
The children have made some wonderful drawings about walking to school this week and we hope to use their drawings and ideas to create a leaflet to promote walking.
Well done if you managed to walk to school this week. If you didn't, try next week instead. It's never too late!
