A local infant school in Harlow, has recently received a letter from world-renowned narrator, Sir David Attenborough, thanking pupils for their commitment to saving the planet in their latest topic.

YEAR Two pupils at William Martin Church of England Infant School are celebrating this week after receiving a signed letter from environmental advocate, Sir David Attenborough. The school, which teaches children aged between three and seven, invited classes to write their own love letters to the Earth after reading Isabel Otter’s popular children’s novel, Dear Earth.

The children were utterly engrossed by the story, which sees schoolgirl Tessa embark on a fun-packed adventure around the world and were eager to learn more about how they could better look after the planet. This inspired classes to carry out independent research into Sir David Attenborough and his Our Planet series. In the style of Otter’s book, pupils then wrote their own love letters to the Earth, which the school posted to Sir David Attenborough.

Pupils were delighted to receive a written response from the narrator, which thanked the children for their letters and their passion for saving the planet.

Gina Bailey, Headteacher at William Martin Church of England Infant and Junior School said; “This was a brilliant experience for the children as it showed them that their hard work and effort has had an amazing, authentic outcome. We are very proud of the work they produced and even prouder that Sir David Attenborough enjoyed reading their letters so much!”
