PUPILS at Boothstown Methodist Primary School have been using an award-winning website to learn about the impact of their travel choices.

Using Transport for Greater Manchester’s DingDing website, the pupils evaluated the causes and implications of global warming and what the phrase carbon footprint meant to them.

The class used the Little Planet module on the DingDing website – which is aimed at educating children aged 5 to 14 about public transport issues - to look at how much carbon was produced by their current journeys.

Head teacher Karen Armfield said: “Our pupils were absolutely fantastic and were really enthusiastic during the session.

“The DingDing website has provided exciting opportunities for the children to discuss environmental issues and better understand the role and value of public transport through these activities.”

In2learn delivered the lesson on behalf of TfGM.

Visit dingding.org.uk to find how much carbon you produce.
