Air Pollution and Climate Change

On Wednesday, pupils from Y5 were very excited and proud to talk to BBC radio Leeds about the problems of air pollution in preparation for Clean Air Day. Earlier in the year they had drawn pictures in a balloon about what air pollution is to them and how it is created. They discussed ideas around climate change and asthma. They also depicted how they can help reduce air pollution by walking to school, reducing the amount of meat they eat, shopping locally and not using air fresheners.

 
This work was done with the National Centre for Atmospheric Science. Together with a professional author they used some of the ideas to inform and inspire a new online story. the story is set inside a futuristic domed city where the main character, Hy, tries to find out how to restore clean air.  The full story can be read here: Grandma’s Footsteps 
 
It is so important we empower our children so they are able to shape positive environmental change. During the interview with BBC Leeds radio, Gulwish, Hussain and Jamal covered topics ranging from asthma to eating less burgers and from walking to school in the rain to smelly air near petrol stations.
 

At the end of the interview the tables where turned and the children asked the journalist about his career, his motivations and the steps he had to take to get there.
