Last term, Year 4 learnt about the topic of Water. During this topic there was a focus on litter pollution on our beaches. Children spent a lesson learning about the effects of litter on the beaches and how this impacts water pollution. They then went onto writing their own letter of persuasion to the local government to help stop pollution on our beaches.
One child in particular, Harrison Tong, was so inspired by this lesson that he took his learning that step further. He took it upon himself to write to the Prime Minister to express his views about litter on our beaches. His letter was so convincing that the not only received one reply, but two! He received one letter on behalf of the government and another from the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs.
Westland’s Primary school would like to say a HUGE congratulations to Harrison.
