This week is extra special throughout Prince Edward School, not only because it’s the last week of half term, but also because it’s Environment Week!
What is Environment Week?
Lets ask some Year Sixes what they think Environment Week is all about…
Majida – “It could be helpful because more children will know about pollution and can help change it.”
“It talks about pollution which is important to learn about because it affects animals as well as the world.” – Nathan
“Environment Week is to teach us how to make our environment a better place and to stop things like littering.” – Ebony
“We need to learn about the environment so children understand how important trees and plants are to our planet.” – Louie
But what do we do in Environment Week?
Some children have been outside on a nature walk and gardening in Year Six; others have been learning about endangered animals. Meanwhile, in Year Four, we’ve had the opportunity to make bird feeders and, in Year Three, we’ve been learning about the artist Andy Goldsworthy – who specialises in natural art – and creating some of our own artistic pieces.
The entire Year Six Team would like to wish our wonderful Year Sixes many, many well-deserved congratulations on all their hard-work and effort over the past few days.
It’s safe to say you have blown us all away with how well you have done this week – you’ve proven to everyone just how determined, diligent and astounding you all are.
As a reward, the Year Sixes are currently taking part in a fun-filled morning of sport and activities (inside due to the weather). We hope you enjoy this time to just relax and have fun!
Just a short message of support for all of our wonderful Year Six pupils…
Dear Year Six,
Your hard-work, perseverance and effort over the past few weeks, if not months, has been truly admirable. We – the Year Six staff – are confident that you will shine during next week’s SATs exams and will prove to everyone just how special a year group you are.
Take time this weekend to relax, get some good night’s sleep, rest those weary brains and prepare for the week ahead – we know that you will do us proud!
Good luck with your SATs exams, you’ve all worked so hard and you deserve every success – we know that you will do your very best.
Have a lovely weekend,
The Year Six Team
