Walk to School Week 2022

May 16, 2022

New Wellbeing Walkabout resources to support Walk to School Week 16th – 20th May 2022

The Active Travel Team are delighted that over 40 schools from across the county have requested resources, to be distributed to almost 6000 children!

The activity sheet is a simple, folded leaflet and has been designed around the 5 Ways to Wellbeing with a focus on getting children to think about how they feel on their active journeys. There are activities to encourage them to engage with their surroundings, and some suggestions to help make their experiences more fulfilling. The activities are not specific to Walk to School Week and can be used any time.

If you would like a copy of the Wellbeing Walkabout resource you can download by clicking on the images below.

There is also a link to a termly prize draw that parents & carers can enter on behalf of the children with the chance to win a £100 Halfords Voucher, a Junior Fitbit, and a Scooterpod for their school!

If parents are struggling to access the draw via the QR Code due to lack of access to smart phones/internet then we are happy to accept entries via the school, just get in touch with Jodie.laird@cumbria.gov.uk or mandy.bailey@cumbria.gov.uk.
