10 Day Active Travel Challenge

Our school took part in the 10 day Active Travel Challenge starting on Monday 14th March and finishing on Friday 25th March 2022. The challenge was for pupils & their families to choose an active way of getting to school over the 10 day period.  There were prizes available for everyone who completed the challenge and the whole school! 

Walking, cycling, skating, scooting and park & stride are all active ways of travelling and we hope by taking part in the challenge it will:

  • Improve health & wellbeing of our pupils & their families
  • Encourage pupils and families to be more active
  • Reduce congestion and parking problems around our school
  • Improve air quality around school
  • Promote active travel for the journey to school and for families to continue to do this after the challenge!

During the challenge each class recorded pupils who travelled actively to school. Those pupils who travel actively for all 10 days of the challenge will be awarded a small collectable badge. 


During the fortnight, we also had some themed days. These were:

  • Mad Science Monday (14th) - to link to Science Week. Could children bling their bikes/scooters/skateboards/selves up to link to our 'growth' theme for Science week? E.g. spring flowers, etc. 
  • Wildlife Wednesday (16th) - make a list of any wildlife you see on the way to school.
  • Red Nose Day Friday (18th) - can you make a red nose for your bike/scooter/skateboard/self?
  • Musical Monday (21st) - playing music in the playground as the children arrive, songs with an active theme (requests are welcome!). 
  • Wheel it Wednesday (23rd) - extended time to ride this day.
  • Funky Feet Friday (25th) - children can have funky feet for this day. 

Any child who completed the challenges on 14th, 16th, 18th and 25th received 5 house points.
