Last December, as part of our Monarch topic, Elm class drafted formal letters to the Queen. In the letters, we were asked to inform her of our wishes for the country for 2019. Many of us chose to write about pollution, litter and the plastic in the ocean crisis. We all waited patiently, with crossed fingers, in hope that she would reply- AND SHE DID!
Arriving in a red and cream envelope was a letter from the Correspondence Officer. We couldn’t quite believe how formal her response was! As our letters had environmental concerns, they were forwarded on to the Prime Minister (how exciting).
This morning, just after Mrs Kempson had read us out an email from our favourite author ( Mrs Kempson had email David Long to thank him for inspiring us with his unbelievable survival stories), Mrs Eagle entered with another VERY important looking letter. 10 DOWNING STREET HAD REPLIED - thanking us for the wonderful letters, and asking us to join the Eco-Schools Programme.
We absolutely love writing letters and sending them off, as having a reply makes it all worth while and we feel like we are being listened to.
