In Year 4 this term, one of our Home Learning tasks was to write a letter to the Prime Minister about an environmental issue. Many of the children wrote moving and well thought out letters, but Emily went one step further. She decided to actually send her letter ( which raised the issue of bee conservation and protection) off to Downing Street. We were all excited to find that one of Theresa May’s Correspondence Officers actually wrote back!

In his reply, the Correspondence Officer thanked Emily for her letter, and informed her that he had passed it on the the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, who will hopefully be able to respond to Emily’s letter with some suggestions for what we can do to combat the environmental issue she raised.
On the first day of the Summer term, Coral completed a TASC (Thinking Actively in a Social Context) day. These days are designed to help the children to learn how to work better in groups and apply their knowledge of the wider world to their learning.
This time round the children were tasked with creating a structure from plastic bottles as part of our Caring for the Environment Learning Journey. As you can see from the images, the children had a lot of fun making their structures!
