Bow Bus Garage

On Wednesday Yellow Class went to Bow Bus garage. We were very excited waiting at the bus stop for the bus to come.

When we got to the garage Lance came onto the bus and we asked him all the questions we had been thinking about at school.

Then we  went down stairs and everyone had a turn in the drivers seat, beeping the horn and opening the doors. Some children also turned the lights on and off.

  

Next we drove round to the pit were the buses that have broken down are fixed.

Before coming back to school we said ‘thank you’ to all the people who had shown us around and looked after us at the bus garage.

We are supporting Unicef UK’s OutRight campaign!

Green class have been learning all about London this term. As part of Outright’s speak out on air pollution and for the right to a clean, safe environment, we decided to explore the some of the busy roads near our school.

We recorded the vehicles which went past on a tally chart.

Have a look at our results…

Valance Road

Finnis Street

Bethnal Green Road

We found out that Bethnal Green Road was the busiest road with the most vehicles driving past.

We also found out that Finis Street was least busy with smallest number of vehicles driving past.

In class, we discussed some of the ways we can reduce vehicle pollution when travelling to school. We can do this by, walking, taking public transport or riding a bike/scooter to school.

What will you do differently to help reduce air pollution in the area?

Five reasons why you should walk to school

There are many benefits to walking to school. We have been making a personal commitment to reducing the number of times we are driven to school. Year 5 have come up with our top five reasons for walking.

  1. Walking to school is great for your health because you develop a high level of endurance and it gets your blood flowing around the body.
  2. The fresh, morning air will wake you up,  put you in a great mood and make you ready to tackle the challenges of the day.
  3. Driving to school is bad for the environment as it burns fuel, which releases pollution into the air. This reduces the air quality and can cause breathing problems for many people, especially children with asthma and allergies.
  4. Walking to school is a great time to spend talking to your family and friends. It is also an opportunity for parents to catch up with their friends while doing the morning school run.
  5. Driving to school can be very expensive because you need to pay for fuel.

I hope these reasons have convinced you and your family to walk to school more often.
