After finding out all about air pollution, the pupils then wrote their own letters to local politicians to explain what they had learnt about air pollution in Bristol, and their suggestions for how they thought the city and region should address the problem and make a healthier, happier city. The children have now had three responses from local politicians included the Mayor, Marvin Rees. Find out about the politicians’ responses.
Huge thanks to Emily Prestwood and Laura Fogg Rogers from UWE Bristol, Helen Howard and excellent student assistants from Orchard School, the teachers, assistants and volunteers from Year 5 Upper Horfield Community School and Horfield CE Primary School, and especially to all of the year 5 pupils from both schools who put so much effort into making the day a success. The event was made possible through additional funding from the University of the West of England.
