WALK TO SCHOOL WEEK

WALK TO SCHOOL WEEK 5th - 9th October
Being active and getting some exercise in the morning before arriving at school can help set children up for a positive day, improving focus and concentration and instilling a sense of physical and mental wellbeing.
There are many health benefits to walking - exercise helps develop strong bones and increase muscle strength. Walking gets the heart pumping, which can help improve cognitive function for lessons throughout the school day.
Is your school involved this week? If they are then let us know.
If your school has not set this up as an initiative this week then it doesn't mean you cannot take part. As parents and carers, we can support our children's development and choose this week as an opportunity to start building a healthy habit. So, leave the car at home or further away from the school and get moving!
