Planning for Walk Safely to School Day

Elaine Lewis

The Year 4 Your Move committee met again yesterday. They worked on their posters to promote Walk Safely to School Day.

During the session they also conducted the Carbon Dioxide and Greenhouse Effect CO2 experiment. The shrieks of delight as carbon dioxide filled the balloon reflected the level of excitement. Feeding into this joy, we discussed how our atmosphere acts like a greenhouse and traps heat at the surface of the Earth.

PA announcements, items in the school Bulletin and other strategies were considered to promote this special event. Overall, a very productive and successful YM team meeting.
