This is the breathing challenge!
Some of the eco team have been finding out how many times you breathe in a day and how much CO2 you produce.
This is what we have found out so far.
Did you know that one breath =0.5L which is 4% of CO2.
We also found out that you breathe 7 to 10 times in 30 seconds!
4% of 500ml = 20g of carbondioxide which = 1 breath.
1% = 125ml.
1% of 500ml = 5g of carbondioxide.
We estimate that you breathe 14 to 20 times in a minite.
That is how much carbondioxide you breathe out if you do nothing but breathe - so that means you don't exercise.
So what a few of us did was figure out how much carbondioxide you breathe out if you exercise. So we doubled 28800g which = 57600g.
So now you know how much CO2 you breathe in a day!
Below is a picture showing you how you breathe in and out.

We raised £152.33!
Hello and welcome back to our eco club blog. We would like to say a big THANK-YOU! to everyone who bought stuff on our stand at the school fair.
It is the last week of eco club this week, until next year. We have been making cakes that are eco-themed to take home. OK, lets do the last eco review of the term.
ECO ITEM REVIEW!
By Theo Binns
Last week, we went to Cribbs Causeway and found out that you can get an eco steam car wash which cleans your car better than water and is much more efficent than using water. Prices start from £7, but can go up to £95. For the top one, the "bee's knees" you get everything you need, such as seat upholstery cleaning, a full body and interior wash and a freshener and loads more! I would give it 7/10 because if your car has crumbs on it before the wash, mould will start growing on it.

It is less than a week until the NPS summer fete (2.00 pm - 4.30 pm), where Eco club will have a stall selling plants, crazy grassheads, a Jumble-Bumble sale and even a chance to buy some of the land on minibeast city!
Please come to the stall because this will help us raise more money for Minibeast City. Thank-you!
Did you know that it is National Insect Week this week? It is trying to teach people more about the insects around us. You can find out more here: http://nationalinsectweek.co.uk/

Don't forget our posters competition. We would like you to design a poster to promote the Big Pedal. Send your entries to 4m NOW.

Autumn Term at Eco Club
Lately we have had a visitor Elsa and she is from the
This term we made a start on our environmental audit of the school. We went around the school and made a map of the areas of the school that are good and bad for the environment. We realised that we don't have many flowers. We do have lots of trees and this is good because they are habitats for wildlife. We have also had Gaynor, from the Young Person's Trust for the Environment, come into school to work with the year 2,3,4, and 6 classes on what we like and could improve about the school grounds. Gaynor will work with us for the next three years to make our school grounds even more fantastic.
We are having solar panels being put up on top of our school roof and therefore the eco club have decided to focus on energy this year. We are researching solar panels and will be telling the school about these soon. In our school we are also trying to reduce the energy that we use! Well done for saving energy, Newbridge!

5L snatch the golden light bulb by 1 point
This week the golden light bulb went to 5L by 1 point - it was really close. We are now going to be doing more checks so watch out for us and turn your lights off because we could check any time.
Lately the energy team have decied to have a parents energy session. The reason we have decided to have a parents energy session is that everyone in the energy team said that their parents are not the best at turning off lights.
If you want to save energy at home WATCH THIS SPACE! Details coming soon.

Recently the Energy Team have been doing lots of exciting things such as being on the radio, being in the newspaper and being on the news. We all went to the Guild Hall where we showed other schools what we have done so far, we even showed the film we made! We were also presented with a certificate by the Counciler Gerrish. We've proved our point and now the school are saving it really well! We need to continue though and we are going to hold a parents meeting soon so we hope you can come..... for further details they will be in the newsletter soon!
