Year 1's Fundraising Event

Walk in your wellies and raise money to give hunger the boot!

This autumn, schools across the UK are pulling on their wellies and organising sponsored welly walks.

Together we're aiming to walk 16,000 miles - all the way around Africa. We will be able to see how far we've got and enter our welly miles on an interactive welly miles tracker. Once completed we can download a certificate celebrating how far we have walked.

The Great African Welly Walk gives pupils a chance to step outside of classroom and get active. Outdoor learning opens up opportunities for learning for pupils, and teaches them the value of exercise and keeping fit. Your pupils will love learning about Africa in geography, writing a welly walk diary entry in English, and perhaps designing their own welly boots in art.


This event gives our pupils the chance to make a difference to the lives of children less fortunate. Each child will have the option of collecting sponsored money for the distance they walk. When we send the money we've raised, we will receive a certificate showing how much our school raised for Farm Africa.
