Children's poems

Walking to school is cool,
 Walking to school is fun,
 It keeps you fit and healthy
 And you can play, skip and run.
 You can talk to your Mum,
 You can enjoy the sun,
 You can meet your friends,
 And have great fun.

    Aalia, Parkfield Junior and Infant School, Birmingham, UK

Its lots of fun,
 Stretch your legs and have a run,
 Though take your time, keep in line
 When you're in the walking bus.
 Follow the code, look both ways when you cross the road.
 It's good for your health,
 You're very safe and you won't have a crash,
 Walk to school – that's what I call COOL.
