Walk to School Poster & Pledge

10th May 2019

All children from Reception to Year 6 have attended an assembly about the WOW Program this week and they have all started to record their method of  travelling to school when completing the register each morning.  The online recording system is very easy to use and each child has been given a cute icon to represent them in the system - the children are very excited about the icons, so be sure to ask your child which one they are using!

To kick off the WOW Program, we are sending home two letters today:

Walk to School Pledge - we are asking all of our families to sign a pledge to try to walk to school at least one per week (this includes scootering, cycling, using a Park & Stride or getting off of the bus one stop earlier).

Poster Competition - we are asking children to design a poster to spread the important health, well-being and air quality messages about the benefits of walking to school.  The best posters will be displayed around the school site for all to see and the winner of the competition will receive a gift voucher. 

In addition to the posters and the pledge,  the children who walk to school most often throughout the summer term will be entered in our WOW Raffle.  The prizes include scooters and outdoor games which encourage active play.  There are even some travel mugs for the grown-ups so that they can enjoy their coffee while walking to school!

The weather next week looks lovely, so let’s all try walking to school!
