WALK TO SCHOOL WEEK 2023
Posted on 28th March 2023 at 14:42
Kingsthorpe Parish Council is offering to fund classroom packs to support the participation of local Primary Schools in Living Street’s Walk to School Week 2023.
Living Streets is a national charity supporting everyday walking. Between Monday 15th to Friday 19th May 2023 pupils throughout Britain will be encouraged to travel sustainably to school, whether by walking, scooting, using a wheelchair or cycling. The aim is to encourage healthy exercise and reduce air pollution which is damaging children’s lungs as well as the environment.
This year's classroom packs will adopt a Walk with Wildlife theme, featuring a range of fun and relatable animals to guide pupils through the challenge. As they progress through the week, pupils learn about the many benefits of active and sustainable travel for individuals, communities, and the planet. You can find more information about Walk to School Week by visiting: www.livingstreets.org.uk/wtsw
Classroom packs contain material for up to 30 pupils and are available in KS/P1-3 and KS2/P4-7 variants, featuring age-appropriate curriculum aligned activities. Inside each pack you will find:
• Teacher guidance and parent support information
• One double sided classroom wallchart/pledge poster
• Daily stickers for pupils and wallchart
• 30 pupil activity diaries
• 30 end of week pupil rewards
If you would like to take part in Walk to School Week this year, and you would like to receive fully-funded classroom packs, please register your interest via email by Friday 14th April - email@example.com
Please could you also provide the information below in preparation for your order:
• Name and email address of lead contact at your school
• School address
• How many classes you have in KS1 (and how many pupils in each class)
• How many classes you have in KS2 (and how many pupils in each class)
Please note: Schools can choose classroom packs for either/both KS1 or KS2. There is no problem if a school only wants to receive packs for one key stage. Packs will be ordered by KPC and delivered by Living Streets in time for the project. Orders will be placed with Living Streets by Fri 21st April 2023.
