WALK TO SCHOOL MONTH:
May is Walk To School Month and across the UK communities are being encouraged to make it easier for children to walk to school.
Walking to school is a great choice for all sorts of reasons. It’s a simple way of having more exercise and outdoor time, without having to fit another outing, club or activity into busy weeks. Research has shown that getting our bodies moving gets our brains moving too – so children who have walked to school are likely to feel more ready to learn and less sleepy than those who have travelled by car.
And it can be a great opportunity for connection: whether that’s talking through feelings with your child, catching up with friends or meeting other local children from different classes.
When time is short, weather is bad or roads are busy, walking doesn’t always feel like the easy choice. But with some simple changes, it’s possible for most of us to walk to school, at least for some of the distance, some of the time.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
