Back to School Advice – Third to Sixth Class
COVID-19 Back to School Advice for Parents
By Jack 5th Class
Hi! Did you know that we are damaging our planet because of cars and air pollution? Well keep reading because I will tell you what we can do to help.
5th class at St. Clare’s did a project on Air Pollution. We put test tubes around our school to measure NO2 levels. After one month we sent the test tubes to be analysed in a laboratory in England.
We found out that the air pollution levels decreased compared to last year’s levels. We think this is because of Covid-19 travel restrictions and less traffic on the road.
So let’s try and keep these levels low. How can we do this? Here are some ideas:
-Use the car less.
-Try walk, school or scoot.
-Plant flowers and trees.
St. Clare’s will run this test again in 2021. We know that the levels of air pollution will reduce again because clean air is really important to us.
Together we can all make a big difference.
Check out the video of the amazing science experiments carried out at home by our pupils. Well done everyone!
