As part of their learning about power and different forms of energy, Year 4 were shocked to discover the pollution readings from our Purple Air monitor in the playground. Something had to be done!

We considered the options and decided to raise awareness in school and also write to the head of Camden Council – Georgia Gould. Year 4 learnt all about different persuasive techniques to make their letters as compelling as possible.
We are waiting hopefully for a response from Ms Gould. Perhaps she will offer to help fund a green wall in our playground, as some of our students suggested?
What can YOU do to help reduce air pollution in our local area?
