P4 Letters to the Earth

P4 Enb decided to combine the European School Writing Fest with our Greener Green projects about the environment.  

First we visited the Letters to the Earth site.  Letters to the Earth encourages people from all over the world to write about how they feel about our Earth.  It could be any type of writing and be about any aspect of our Earth and environment.  The children watched some letters being read.  


We also watched some videos about the beauty of our Earth and the dangers it is facing.  We later read several poems from many different poets to understand how other people transfer their feelings into their writing.

The children were then given freedom to write their own Letter to the Earth in their own way.  The work they produced was then reproduced onto recycled paper to be displayed and enjoyed by others, and some were submitted to the Writing Fest.
