Footprints allows the children to reflect upon:

-the steps they take

-the marks they make

-the prints they leave

These are embedded across the curriculum: they will learn from steps taken in the past (e.g History), assess marks being made in the present (e.g PSHE/RSE) and consider the prints that will be left for the future (e.g Geography/Sustainability), ultimately having a positive impact on their world.
