'Walk on Wednesday' Challenge

    

Sevenoaks Primary School is once again taking part in the KM Charity Teams' ‘Walk to School’ challenge. This is a council driven initiative which aims to help promote the health and enviromental benefits of walking to school.

As from 4th October we will be encouraging children to walk to school at least once a week. At the end of each week the class teacher will conduct a hands up survey where the number of children who managed to walk to school at least once that week will be counted.

Children have been given a special sticker chart which will be kept at school and each child with their hand up will receive a sticker. For the autumn term they will receive a bronze sticker, for the spring term, a silver sticker and summer term, a gold sticker.

The incentive for the children will be that every week all the year groups in our school will be competing against each other and the year group with the highest percentage of walkers will win a trophy and a special mention in the weekly assembly.

Throughout this academic year  there will be three 'Challenge Wednesdays' where  this time the schools from the whole county will be competing against each other for a chance to win special 'days out' tickets.

The first Challenge day will be on the 21st October 2014, the second challenge day is Wednesday 4th November

Every child in the winning class will receive a free child entry ticket to beautiful Leeds Castle for the first Challenge and a free child entry ticket to Silver Blades ice-rink for the second!  

We do understand that for some families walking to school is not an option but all we ask is that perhaps once a week you would try to park 5 minutes away from the school gates and walk the rest of the journey.

For those children who are unable to walk to school at all (e.g. coming by taxi) we have arranged for our sports leader, to lead a walk around the grounds in order that the children may still receive a sticker.

Thank you very much for your support.
