21 Feb WOW Travel Tracker 2022
To promote active travel here at Alexandra we pledge to actively travel to school.
What are the benefits of walking to school?
- Form of exercise and it keeps us healthy
- It’s great for our minds and bodies
- Opportunity to spend time with our families
- By walking we help reduce pollution
- Great for the planet
What is Park & Stride?
Park and Stride means parking the car 10 minutes away from school and walking the rest of the journey.
This way you can still earn a badge!
What does it mean to actively travel?
It means you are using the power of your body to move yourself. Examples of ‘active’ travel are walking, cycling and scooting.
A leading charity that encourages children to walk to school.
WOW Travel Tracker
WOW is one of the UK’s leading behaviour change initiatives, brought to you by Living Streets, the charity for everyday walking.
This is a pupil-led initiative which will see children digitally record how they get to school everyday. If they travel sustainably (walk, wheel, cycle, scoot or Park & Stride) at least once a week for a month, they get rewarded with a WOW badge.
Year 6 School Street Workshop
To further promote this Y6 have took part on a School Street workshop.
Here, Y6 actively gathered data within their local community focusing on Western way and The Common.
The children identified key features using a tally chart and then had the opportunity to design and create their own version of a live school street.
Using a range of materials, children creatively expressed what they would like to see more of in and around their local community.
