Last week we took part in 'Eco Week'. This was an opportunity for us to learn more about the plight of our world and how we can work together to conserve and preserve the wonderful world we live in.
In English and maths, we studied the impact of palm oil production on our environment and how this endangers the life of many species who lose their habitats. We analysed data in maths and then carried out research in English which helped us write persuasive letters to a range of audiences, including supermarket CEO's, consumers and palm oil producers.
We were lucky enough to have Zara Visanji from Thames21 join us, after Mrs Leslie saw her sharing her passion for river conservation on BBC News. She spoke to us in depth about the path that led her to the job she currently does, the issues surrounding the rivers in our country and how we can help to keep them clean. We learnt so much, had some great discussions and asked lots of questions!
In PSHE with Mrs Middleton and Ms Tocco, we made some AMAZING eye-catching posters which we have put around the school as a reminder to our whole school community.
Our 'Eco Squad' have also been very busy this week. They have delivered worship to both KS1 and KS2 to inform everyone of what we are currently doing to be as eco-friendly as possible and what more we could do to help. Wonderful work, Eco Squad!
