IT’S WALK TO SCHOOL FORTNIGHT
8th – 19th October 2018
As part of our year-round initiative to Walk to School more, we are encouraging the children at Thorn Grove to take part in Walk to School Fortnight which will take place this week and next week (8th – 19th October).
Walking to school benefits everyone: it’s healthy, it can improve well being, and it can help to reduce pollution and congestion. Walking is a more sociable activity and can enhance children’s road safety skills and awareness.
We would like to ask all our pupils and parents to walk to school wherever possible throughout the next two weeks. Teachers will be completing a tally of how many children in each class walk to school each day. Our Eco-Warriors will be working closely with me to work out which class has walked to school the most, and the class with the most walkers may just be in for a treat!
Instead of just walking, you may want to travel to school on a scooter or bicycle. We understand that it is not always possible to walk to school if you live far away. Instead of driving the whole distance to school, you might want to try and park a few streets away and walk some of the distance to school. Every little helps!
