October is International Walk To School month, a campaign set up by Living Streets who are on a mission to increase the number of students who walk to school. Their five-day walking challenge encourages primary school children to walk, cycle, or park and stride (parking 10 minutes away from the school and walking the rest of the way) every day for one week. This takes place on 5- 9 of October. To find out more about the challenge, visit: https://www.livingstreets.org.uk/get-involved/campaign-with-us/international-walk-to-school-month
Walking to school is a great way of keeping fit, as well as being better for the environment than taking the car. However, it is important for children to be educated on road safety help them stay safe. Our free display boards provide information suitable for KS1 and KS2 about walking and cycling safety, as shown below:
We also provide free to download PowerPoints, posters, and a variety of classroom activities.
