Walk to School Week 21st to 25th May 2018

Walk to School Week 21st to 25th May 2018

2018 is Hertfordshire’s Year of Physical Activity and your challenge is to support your child/children to participate in Spellbrook schools Walk to School Week.

We are excited to be taking part in Walk to School Week next week.

We would like to encourage all our pupils to try and walk, cycle or scoot to school during this week.  If it’s not possible to walk all the way, then it would be great if you could park 10 minutes away from school and walk or scoot the last part of your journey.

Each class will have a poster of the earth and every time a pupil travels sustainably a sticker goes on the poster.  The aim is to take a ‘virtual’ walk around the earth to help Buster the dinosaur (the Active and Safer Travel Team mascot) walk from one side of the Earth where it is very built up and has lots of vehicles and congestion to the other side of the Earth where children are travelling actively to school by walking, scooting or cycling.

We all know the health benefits of walking so please help us next week to reduce congestion, support children being more active and lower carbon emissions this walk to school week.  Obviously for the majority of us travelling to Spellbrook  to come to school without the use of a car is not practical but for next week could I urge as many of you as possible to consider one of the options in the attachment or make your own arrangements to use the car as little as possible.
