'W.O.W' - Traffic Survey and air pollution tracker.

As part of our Walk to School ‘WOW’ project and year 5’s current maths topic (statistics), we took a trip down to the school gates and conducted a traffic survey on Hexham Road. Our observations found that cars were the most used mode of transport and this is causing many detrimental effects to people’s health and safety. We displayed our results in a table and made several conclusions and comparisons using the data.

In another lesson, we also used the data from our Air Pollution Tracker that sits on Hexham Road. We compared the data on 18th September (a normal school day) and the 20th September (our ‘walking bus’ morning from Sainsbury’s). The data showed a huge difference to the pollution (from cars and other vehicles) in the air and we displayed the data on a line graph to show the difference our huge walk to school event made. Well done again to everyone who joined us!
