The School Travel Plan Pack
Writing a School Travel Plan is the foundation of real, lasting change to the school run at your school. It is also the start of a revolution in physical and mental health in the whole school community. When children and their carers walk, scoot or cycle to school they are establishing active travel habits which will help to keep them healthy throughout their lives. When traffic is reduced, active travel also provides opportunities for relaxed interaction, fostering positive relationships throughout the school community.
When done well, the process of creating a School Travel Plan also provides a wealth of opportunities for interdisciplinary learning in a ‘real world’ context. Learning becomes meaningful to pupils across the school and those pupils are highly motivated by seeing the change that they themselves are bringing about. The only way to create a School Travel Plan which works is to involve pupils in the full process of creating and implementing such a plan. Without this, it is simply another document to gather dust.
The School Travel Plan pack provides all the information and resources your school needs to create an excellent School Travel Plan and transform your school community.
The Pedometer Project
The Pedometer Project is a whole class, term long project suitable for Primary 4 to Primary 7 classes (7 to 12 years old). The pack includes worksheets, teacher sheets and display sheets for the Pedometer Project and an additional bonus Energy and Activity lesson.
The aim of the project is to teach numeracy skills whilst promoting physical activity. Through daily practise, pupils will practice numeracy skills including:
• Understanding four and five digit numbers
• Adding four and five digit numbers
• Rounding numbers up and down
• Understanding measurement and converting between meters and kilometres
• Adding data to tables and charts.
The Starter For Ten Enterprise Project
Starter For Ten is a whole term, cross-curricular project for upper primary classes. A series of lessons provide your class with the knowledge and skills they need to start their own businesses in small groups. Groups are loaned £10 to start their business with the businesses running for four weeks after around six weeks learning and preparation.
Starter For Ten provides a highly motivating, real world context for learning with pupils taking full responsibility for their businesses. The pupils are also responsible for making key decisions including what to spend any profit on and whether to act as philanthropists and opt to donate a proportion of their income to charity.
The full project covers a number of curriculum areas: literacy, numeracy, health and wellbeing, religious and moral education, social studies and technologies. All lessons are fully linked to the Scottish Curriculum For Excellence.
Each of the fourteen lessons includes a lesson plan, a PowerPoint presentation and any worksheets or other resources required. Lesson plans include learning objectives, suggestions for differentiation, a starter activity, a main lesson, a plenary activity, suggestions for further development, opportunities for display, and relevant second level Curriculum For Excellence experiences and outcomes.
