National Walking Month

Despite the lockdown, May is National Walking Month. To help keep children active and engaged, Living Streets has created a space where you can find updates on the walk to school initiatives during this time of lockdown, including news, stories, and FREE resources and activities! https://www.livingstreets.org.uk/walk-to-school/primary-schools This page is for all teachers, school staff, parents & carers of primary school age children.

Living Streets will be releasing new resources and fun activities on the page on a weekly basis

So that we stay connected and share any positive experiences, you can share your daily walks, thoughts, pictures and videos on social media using #WalkingFromHomeas a reminder for families to stick together! No matter the times, the walk to school movement is still strong - whether we are walking to an actual school, or just around the neighbourhood to get back for home school!

Remember – during lockdown, it is important that we all follow the latest Government rules to keep ourselves and others safe.
