Bringing active travel into the Welsh curriculum

The Active Journeys Programme, funded by the Welsh Government, has created a new resource in line with the new Welsh curriculum, all about walking, wheeling and cycling. Last academic year, our work with schools across Wales helped to increase levels of active travel by 24.6% and decrease car use by 29.9% on the school run, which we hope to continue with the help of our new resource.

The resource is a fun and engaging tool to help teach children the benefits and joy that walking, wheeling and cycling can bring them.

The resource is useful for children and has also been designed to assist in building teachers’ capacity to plan and deliver cross-curricular skills within the context of active travel.

This resource will enhance a child’s experience of walking, wheeling, scooting and cycling.

It will be a useful addition to any teacher’s toolkit when designing lessons. These lessons will help pupils consider the environmental and the physical and mental health benefits of walking, wheeling, scooting and cycling.
