At Monkfrith, we encourage children to travel to school by walking, cycling or scooting. Not only is it good for the environment, it is also a great form of exercise and fun as children get to talk to their friends and family on the journey!
We have regularly competitions and Walk to School Days to get everyone walking to school. Children receive stickers, badges and prizes for getting out of the car and coming to school on foot.
In September 2016 we were given Silver Accreditation for our Travel Plan. Thank you for all your help and support!
Our Walk to School Winners this week: Year 4
It was really close between Year 4, 5K and 6. Well done everyone who walked this week! It was also lovely to see so many children cycling and scooting now we are in the Summer Term.
Junior Travel Ambassadors
Each year children in Year 5 and 6 are given the opportunity to apply for the role of Junior Travel Ambassadors. They are responsible for coming up with ideas and promoting safe and sustainable travel. In addition to writing updates in the newsletter, monitoring our online Travel Tracker and making posters, they also give regular assemblies to share their work. Here is their latest assembly – Walk to school week!!
