Walk to School Week 2016!
16 May 2016 - 22 May 2016
'Walk to School Week'
Walking makes children feel healthier and happier! It's been proven that keeping active in this way reduces the chances of becoming obese, developing heart conditions and other diseases.
1 in 4 primary school children in Waltham Forest are classed as obese.
The purpose of the campaign, which has been observed since 1995 is to motivate children to look at road safety awareness so they feel more confident about walking around safely on their own when they're older.
But all this will be taught through games and activities that you can get involved in! If you want to take part - keep an eye out for what's planned at your school.
