Downing Street reply to Year 6 Deforestation Letters

As part of our 'Amazon Adventure' topic last term, 6C wrote to Boris Johnson, to persuade him to do something about palm oil production and the destruction of the rainforests.


The children used emotive language, technical vocabulary, alliteration, the rule of three and other persuasive writing techniques to try to convince the Prime Minister that deforestation is an important topic which needs to be discussed and acted upon. 


Today, we received a reply. Our student voice has made an impact and we are thankful that our thoughts and feelings will, in some small way, ensure a brighter future for the world's rainforests and the animals that live there. 


Year 6 truly are 'Agents of Change.'
