Active Travel Lockdown Activities
Hi everybody! Hope you are all well and you are keeping active whilst you are staying at home and keeping safe!
If you would like to send any photographs to me of you and your family keeping fit, going for walks, riding your bikes or scooters etc, I would love to see them! We could even share all our 'keeping active' photographs and ideas on here so that you can all see what your friends are doing.
If you would like to do this, please send your photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org and watch this space!
I have attached some active travel activity sheets below to keep you busy! Enjoy!
I hope to see you all back at school very soon!
WOW WALK OF FAME CHALLENGE
It’s the end of the first week of the WOW Walk of Fame challenge! Well done to everyone taking part and recording their journeys on Travel Tracker this week!
Our position in the leaderboard is currently 8th out of 34 participating schools in the Sheffield City Region.
Well done, we are doing fantastic!
Keep up the great work and all the walking to school next week. Remember to log your journey to school everyday!
It's Competition Time Again!

Lets see if we can get a winner from Sitwell Infant School!
Simply download the attachment below to create your design then send to the email address provided.
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!
Sitwell Infant School is an active school! We are at silver level of the Modeshift Stars active travel award and are currently working towards our gold accreditation.
We have had lots of fun in school over the last few years promoting active travel. We have joined in with lots of exciting national initiatives and ran many fun events and activities in school.
We were very proud to be nominated for an award 'regional school of the year' in November. Mrs Lilley and Mrs Peart took two children to the awards ceremony in York to join in with the celebrations.
If you have any new ideas about ways that we can promote active travel, please get in touch with Mrs Lilley or Mrs Peart.
Our School Council have recently completed a 5 minute mapping activity with Dom Quaiser-Sweeting, our Active Travel officer. This has been done to support parents and families to park further away or walk the whole way to school. This makes drop offs and pick ups much safer and calmer (and it is better for the environment too!)
Have a look at the help sheet above, which shows the streets which are only a 5 minute walk away.

Using Public Transport
