Week beginning 15th November 2021

We finished writing our letters to the Prime Minister (persuading him to act on climate change during COP26) and posted them, we are waiting eagerly for his reply. We have also written balanced arguments regarding Fairtrade items and whether the local shop should stock and sell more items. We have followed a number of stories about farmers and their lives, looking at the positive impact of the Fairtrade premium.

We baked some delicious chocolate chip cookies using Fairtrade chocolate, alongside visiting our ‘Bring and Buy’ sale in aid of Guide dogs. An exciting Friday afternoon enjoyed by all.

In science we continue to classify animals using the Linnaean System and are planning to create our own unusual and curious creatures to see if we can use this system to classify them, just like the duck-billed platypus.
