Whitchurch Primary is taking part in an exciting nationwide challenge to encourage children to travel actively to school. This means walking, cycling or scooting to school. WOW is run by a charity called Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking, and has been funded by Cardiff Council Active Travel Schools Team. Children record how they travel to school each day, and will be rewarded with a recycled, sustainable badge if they travel actively to school 3 times in a week for a month. They can collect the badges over the year.

We all took part in Earth Day on April 22nd. The School Council gave presentations to the classes, and we designed t-shirts showing the importance of saving our wonderful planet.

Thank you to PC Chris Selby, who has been visiting our Key Stage 2 classes to talk to us about online safety.
