Get ready for Walktober 2019
This year we are running the amazing Walktober again and My Journey Hampshire are giving away some top prizes for families that take part.
Keep a look out for a travel plan leaflet that will come home with your child soon.
This year we have themed Walktober around the NHS’s “Five Steps to Wellbeing”. Evidence suggests that these are five steps we can all take to improve our mental wellbeing:
Within school, children will be competing in the 'Sticky Letters' competition. We are asking all children that they take and print off pictures that look like letters in the alphabet. They can then bring these pictures to their teacher to add to their class total for a chance to win some prizes.
Sustrans’ annual Big Pedal is the UK’s largest inter-school cycling and scooting challenge. Each spring, schools compete to see who can get the most pupils, families and staff members to arrive on two wheels. The more that do, the greater the chance to win some fantastic prizes from bike and scooter storage to cycle stunt shows by the UK’s best riders. The competition is weighted according to the size of the school, so everyone has a fair chance to win!
Walk to School Week is the Living Streets initiative which invites children and parents from around the UK to unite for one week of walking to school. To find out more about Walk to School Week and resources for schools, visit the Living Streets website.
To support walking, the Go Jauntly walking app is available to download and supports people to get active through a collection of inspiring walks. Find out more and discover local routes and tailored walking challenges.
