Travelling actively to school is a great way for young people to get much of the exercise they need to stay healthy, while evidence shows they also arrive more alert and ready to learn. A great way to promote active travel to school, this free resource pack from Sustrans offers fun and engaging activities based on cycling, walking and scooting (all of which can easily be fitted into the busy school day). Each theme in the pack includes a 10, 20 and 30 minute activity, requiring little preparation and no resources other than those found in a typical classroom. Why not inspire your pupils to learn more about sustainable transport, by visiting:
- Articulate and justify answers, arguments and opinions.
- Ask relevant questions to extend their understanding and knowledge.
- Consider and evaluate different viewpoints, attending to and building on the contributions of others.
- Give well-structured descriptions, explanations and narratives for different purposes.
- Listen and respond appropriately to adults and peers
- Maintain attention and participate actively in collaborative conversations.
- Participate in discussions, presentations, performances, role play, improvisations and debates.
- Speak audibly and fluently with an increasing command of Standard English.
- Year 3 and 4 (Age 7-9)
- Assess effectiveness, and suggest improvements, for their own and others’ writing.
- Recognise some different forms of poetry [e.g. free verse, narrative poetry].
- Year 5 and 6 (Age 9-11)
- Assess the effectiveness of their own and others’ writing.
- Use the eight points of a compass, four and six-figure grid references, symbols and key (including the use of Ordnance Survey maps) to build their knowledge of the United Kingdom and the wider world.
- Use fieldwork to observe, measure, record and present the human and physical features in the local area using a range of methods, including sketch maps, plans and graphs, and digital technologies.
