Three reasons to take part in the Great African Welly Walk

There are so many fantastic reasons to take part in the Great African Welly Walk this autumn. Here are our top three...


1. The chance to make a difference 

Your pupils will learn about children like seven-year-old Alpha, who could one day achieve his hopes and dreams with the help of your school.       





2. Fantastic free teaching resources 

We have put together a wide range of teaching resources to help you and your pupils to bring your welly walk to life in the classroom, including Key Stage One and Two lesson plans linked to the National Curriculum.

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.

 3. The chance to have fun together outdoors

The Great African Welly Walk gives pupils a chance to step outside of classroom and get active. Outdoor learning opens up opportunities for learning, and teaches children the value of exercise and keeping fit. 

Your pupils guaranteed to have a fantastic day that brings together teachers, parents and children of all ages. 

See the fun that pupils and staff at St Jude’s C of E Primary School had when they completed their welly walk.

The welly walk was fun because we got to do something different at school and I liked marching around the playground with my friends. I think other schools should do a welly walk too so they can raise money to help children in Africa.

So what are you waiting for? Go find those wellies and get your class exercising, having fun, making a difference and (most importantly) learning this autumn by taking part in the Great African Welly Walk.
