Last Friday we held an assembly where we were thinking about how we travel to school.
Don, our visitor, was encouraging us to try and walk, use a scooter or cycle to school as often as possible. He explained the obvious health benefits, as well as the benefits to the environment. Even if you live far away and have to travel to school by car, getting out of the car a short distance away from school and walking the rest of the way is a start!
We’ll soon be introducing a way to record how we come to school each day when we register. Using fun avatars we can record whether we walked, cycled, used a scooter, etc. and the data will be recorded.
Other schools across the city will be taking part in this initiative, so it will be interesting to see the results!
