Living Streets Walk to School Campaign

As I’m sure you saw on dB Primary – May was National Walking Month. Every year we say National Walking Month is a "celebration of walking". This year we meant it more than ever! Even when we were in a tighter lockdown phase, many people were permitted to leave their house once a day for some form of exercise - this included walking! Lots of the teachers have been speaking to their classes on the phone and many of them have said how much they have been enjoying spending more time with their families during their daily walks. If you missed out on any of the activities from ‘National Walking Month’ then you can find them by following the link below.

Have a look at your year group’s dB Primary page too, for the activity sheets. Now lockdown is beginning to ease, it remains incredibly important to keep active, both for our own wellbeing and to avoid storing up massive health problems for ourselves and the NHS in the future.
Health experts recommend a brisk daily walk as an easy way to improve your health with a 20 minute walk being shown to reduce the risk of a number of preventable health conditions. Have a look at Living Streets #TRY20 campaign for more walking ideas.
We’d also love to see as many of you as possible walking to school when Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 return to Stanburn this term too!
Remember: stay two metres apart, walk locally and wash your hands when you get home.
