As we kick off the Summer Term leg of the challenge...

...we're just over half way!

We've added up all the active travelling you've done and we've collectively covered about 7,600 miles, travelling for around 2,380 hours in total. We now have around 14 weeks left of this term (including half term) to travel the rest of the way!

Remember - if we achieve the overall target ALL children will receive a surprise MYSTERY DAY in school.

Aims of The Longest Walk Challenge:
  • to reduce congestion around the school site and keep your children safe

  • encourage children to aim for an average of at least 60 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity a day across the week (30 minutes in school).

  • take part in a variety of types and intensities of physical activity across the week to develop movement skills, muscles and bones

  • reduce the time spent sitting or lying down and break up long periods of not moving with some activity.

  • spread activity throughout the day. 

How it works:

This school year our aim is to actively travel a distance equal to the world’s longest walkable route, from Magadan in Russia to Cape Town in South Africa, which would take 4,492 hours! Active travel includes: cycling, scooting, walking, skateboarding – any way that means you can leave the car at home!

Each term the total amount of hours travelled will be updated on the map which we'll share in the school newsletter, and we'll update our Active Travel notice board in school so that children and families can track their progress.
