Active Travel Challenge
May and June is active travel time in Ealing schools. At Gifford we are encouraging all pupils to be more active on the journeys to and from school during the weeks of 20th May and 3rd June.
Every pupil will be given a bookmark to stamp each day that they walk, cycle or scoot to school. We are looking to find the most active class in Gifford. If you live too far to walk all the way why not park a little further from school and walk for the last ten minutes?
As part of this work pupils can use the attached template to enter an Ealing-wide completion to design the next active challenge bookmark.
Did you know?
The Chief Medical Officer recommends ten minutes as the minimum duration of physical activity which will have a positive contribution to our health.
