Kensington Primary School
We wanted to do something about the bridge we cross on our way to school. We carried out a survey to find out what local people thought about the bridge and took pictures.
We made graphs to show the results (see 'More Information') We reported the problems on the bridge to our local council and wrote to our MP.
We thought about solutions to the problems with the bridge and worked with an architect to learn about bridge design. We worked with a graffiti artist to design positive images.
We also held a protest and asked local people to sign our petition to get something done about the bad state the bridge is in. Stephen Timms MP visited our school.
