Welcome to scotts' Healthy schools and TRAVEL PLAN page.
Travel Plan Conference Meeting
On the 1st March 2019, Mr Grewal (school governor) and Mrs Bones (class teacher) went to a travel plan conference held at The Coopers Company and Coburn School in Upminster. We had a great day. We met Miles the Mole and had our photograph taken with him. We are hoping that we will be lucky enough for Miles the Mole to pay a visit to Scotts School this year to teach the children about air pollution.
On a recent visit to the Metro Bank in Romford, our year fives used public transport to travel there and back.
Early years have been busy learning about road safety in the autumn term. They particularly learnt how to walk along the pavement and play near roads safely.
Our Junior Travel Ambassadors kicked the day off with a road safety presentation.
A timeless road safety TV advert called King of the Road that was watched by our EYFS children.
Cycle Awareness Day
19th & 20th September 2019
Luckily, the sun was still shining and lovely and warm when some of our children in year 1 and year 2 participated in our bike and scooter training recently. This event was thoroughly enjoyed and their class teachers have reported that the children returned back to class with big smiles.
In November, all of our year one pupils were given a great book called 'Why Animals Can't Ride Scooters and You Can'. The books are all about animals who fail miserably to ride their scooter safely. From downhill blunders to negotiating driveways. Clever and engaging imagery helps bring the charming story to life as it warns children of what happens when scooting goes terribly wrong.
Bikeability Training with 5L
23rd to 27th September 2019
This week, some of our students in 5L have been busy peddling towards their level one and two Bikeability certificates.
Thanks to Sustrans and their expert instructors, pupils have developed better, safer cycling habits that have prepared them for dealing with short journeys to school and the local shops. Thank you, Sustrans!
