A huge well done to all our Year 4 pupils who applied for jobs and took over Oak Hill on Friday! We had our new headteachers leading gold book assembly as well as new faces delivering lessons and supporting children from Nurdery to Year 3.

We are starting to recognise and be able to find solutions to environmental problems such as a gardener who wanted to spray his roses with pesticide. By looking at the bigger picture and interviewing all the animals involved we discovered the drastic impact that taking greenfly out of the food web would cause.
Year 4 have been contacted by Hetty from the WWF who needs our help desperately. The Tropical rainforests of the world are at risk of destruction due to deforestation. We need to persuade people that the rainforests are too precious to just cut down! We will be looking at where rainforests are located around the world and researching what valuable products we get from the rainforest without destroying it. To support our work in English we will be studying ‘The great Kapok tree.’ See if you can find out what sorts of plants grow in the rainforest and which animals […]
