Year 5 Trip to Heathrow Perimeter

On Thursday we went to the outside of Heathrow Airport to collect traffic data. We recorded the noise in db and the number of cars that passed us in 5 and 10 minutes.

The reason we collected this data was to help answer our topic question: ‘Should Heathrow be allowed to expand?’ When we came back to school we collected all our data and placed it on charts and graphs. We compared this data with data collected along Yeading Lane. We found that Yeading Lane was less busy and it was quieter than Heathrow.
