Summary Soho Parish School has taken two weeks off timetable to look at the subject of sustainable transport. They've been using a scheme of work written by consultant Helen Savva and adapted by the teachers at the school. Headteacher Rachel Earnshaw explains the project and we hear comments on its effectiveness throughout the programme. Year 2 investigate what's needed to construct a go-kart. Year 5 put sustainable transport in a global context, researching transport throughout the world. Year 3 have a visit from the penny farthing man who talks about the history of the bicycle and treats some of them to a ride on his penny-farthing in the playground. Year 6 compile Powerpoint presentations showing sustainable transport solutions for the 2012 Olympic Games. At the end of the project parents are invited in to see the children's work and watch their presentations. Throughout the programme the Soho Parish children contribute their own opinions on sustainable transport.
