Some lovely stories from the Green Home Travel Challenge...
As part of the Green Home Travel Theme the children are asked to take one of four challenges and to report on their findings. The challenges include:
- Weekend Traveler Public Transport Plus
- Carpool Kids
- Get Cycling
- Walking Wonderland
The following posts feature some of the reports written by the girls of a Dublin City Centre primary school.
"I walked all the way to the Phoenix Park with my friend and my family. It was tough but if you keep talking you hardly know you are walking. We played football and rolled on the giant cross. It was sooo fun! I looked at the deer. It is fun because it is healthy for you and it doesn't need petrol".
"Last Friday my friends and i were going to the park. It was the Phoenix Park and it is 10/15 minutes from my house. We are not allowed go there on our own. We went with my friends mam. We had a picnic there. We brought a sheet so we could sit on it. We brought food like sandwiches, rolls, crisps, bars and drinks and we bought a ball and a skipping rope. It was so good. We walked back and we walked there".
"Last Saturday I went to Sundrive Park in Crumlin. I went with my two cousins. First we went to the Spar beside the park to get some sweets. We walked around the park for about 20 minutes. We sat down to eat our sweets. Then we went to the playground, we had a great laugh. We walked back around the park for 5-10 minutes. After that we walked back to my house where we had a sleep over".
