Shanklea children don snazzy shoes to bring an extra big smile to Walk to School Week

19th May 2017
This week, we encouraged children and their parents or carers to swap four wheels for two feet and give walking a go during Walk to School Week. As part of the challenge, the children were encouraged to wear the shoes that make them happiest – whether that is the brightest, jazziest or craziest shoes they own, to celebrate Living Streets‟ Happy Shoesday.
Walking to school is a brilliant way to get active and stay healthy. It’s also a great opportunity for children to learn vital road safety skills and make sure they are alert and ready to learn at the start of a new day.
Walk to School Week is part of national charity, Living Streets’, National Walking Month, a month dedicated to celebrating the benefits of walking – and the perfect time to give walking a go. This year Living Streets is urging everyone across the UK to #Try20 – that’s walk for at least 20 minutes each day
