Well done to each and every one of the new recruits for joining in with the training sessions with enthusiasm and interest, they are a fabulous team who are already serving their school very well.
We can now officially begin our weekly parking patrols, from a safe distance from the ‘garden area’ in front of the Junior School on Barclay Road.
Welcome to the five-day Walking Challenge 2021: WALKING SUPERPOWERS
This year’s challenge will focus on the walking superpowers that benefit individuals, communities and the planet.
Each day pupils will be introduced to a brand new ‘Walking Superpower’ taking the form of a fun comic-book inspired design.
Walking has so many benefits from physical to mental wellbeing; aiding concentration and creativity and creating safer, less polluted and more welcoming streets. All that makes for a happy, healthy child set up for success in and out of the classroom.
Through the week, pupils will be introduced to the Walking Superpowers who will teach them all about these benefits and reinforce the power of walking, superhero style!
ARE YOU UP FOR THE CHALLENGE?
Each pupil will be challenged to travel sustainably (walk, scoot, cycle or Park and Stride) to school every day for one week using our fun and interactive wallchart and stickers to log their journeys.
Each class will work collectively to make as many active journeys to school as possible across the week. Each day you will record the number of active journeys made on the classroom wallchart and learn about a new walking superpower. Individual activity diaries, daily stickers and end of week pupil rewards will complement this activity, reinforcing the benefits and keeping children engaged.
Classroom packs contain resources for the whole class, featuring differing, age-appropriate curriculum designed activities.
Inside each pack:
The Junior PCSOs will be helping the event run smoothly and promoting it in their classrooms!
Living Streets' annual badge design competition gives pupils the chance to design the new WOW badges. Last year, they had over 100,000 entries making it one of the biggest design competitions for children in the UK. (WOW is our year-round walk to school challenge. Those who walk, cycle or scoot to school at least once a week for a month earn a WOW badge, with a new one to collect each month across the year).
Walk for the World will focus on the sustainability benefits of walking, highlighting how local actions (like walking to school and ditching the car), can have positive global impacts. Pupils will be asked to consider the contribution that traffic pollution makes to carbon emissions and to research and draw wildlife or a natural habitat affected by climate change.
We hope the badge competition will help pupils understand how walking to school, instead of driving, is helping to fight climate change through lower vehicle emissions, protecting wildlife and natural habitats for the future.
Be big, bold and colourful! Diversity and originality are key to standing out from the crowd! Use the templates that you have been given and get your entries back to your class teacher by FRIDAY 21st MAY 2021. The Junior PCSOs will be judging the competition on Monday 24th May 2021, so that we can have our chosen entries to the competition organisers by the closing date on Friday 28th May 2021.
The winning designs will be turned into more than 300,000 badges - made from 100% repurposed plastic - to be awarded to WOW pupils who walk, cycle, scoot or Park and Stride.
Prizes up for grabs:
Every school that enters will be eligible for our prize draw! So what are you waiting for? Get creative!
We had so many entries to the 2021 WOW Badge Design competition, with over 156 designs. The competition organisers wanted children to research and draw animals and their natural habitats all over the world that are affected by climate change, then design a badge that of the animals that would be protected by walking to school and reducing carbon emissions.
The Abbey Junior PCSOs loved the judging process and were complimentary on the wide range of wonderful designs. They chose one overall winner per year group and runners up too.
Every child who has entered the competition will have their designs returned to them with an Abbey 'thank you' certificate. The winning designs will be entered into the competition.
On June 17th it is Clean Air Day. We are celebrating this across our school with a Junior PCSO parking patrol, assembly and asking the children to make a pledge. What will your pledge be?
The pledges people are making are:
