Aiming High to Excel and Exceed

Autumn Term

This week, class Sherwood enjoyed an exciting trip to see Dick Whittington at the pantomime! We all had a fabulous time.

After reading the story about Buddy the orangutang Class Forest decided to find out more about deforestation of rainforests. We found out that rainforests are being cut down to grow palm oil trees. Palm oil is used in lots of products that are made by the company Nestle. We wrote letters to Nestle asking them about the use of palm oil in their products and we got a reply.  

This week in class Sherwood, we have been writing rhetorical questions about the rare and wonderful animals that  live in the rainforest.
