A Letter to David Cameron: Stop Deforestation!

Hello everybody! This particular post is going to be a letter that everyone else in my class wrote the day the MP visited school. Because I was giving John Spellar a tour around the school, I did not have time to write it. So, I decided to complete it today!

Dear Mr Cameron,

I am writing to you to inform you about the dangers of chopping down the rainforest. There are many reasons to why the precious rainforest should not be harmed.

Firstly, I strongly believe that you should not chop down the rainforest because over 25% of tropical plants are used in modern medicine. Some of them are used to treat Malaria and Cancer. Therefore, destroying the rainforest will destroy all of the helpful plants. As a result of this, people could get seriously ill and with no medicine to cure them, they would die!

My second reason to think that your idea could lead to a crisis is due to the fact that many rare and beautiful animals use the rainforest as shelter. If they had nowhere to hide, they would be easily exposed to predators and wouldn’t have any protection. That way, they would become endangered or even extinct! How would you feel if you lost all your family and friends?

My main reason for why this is a catastrophic plan is because several indigenous tribes have lived their for many years. These people depend on the rainforest for many things such as food, shelter and medicine. If you chop down the trees, you take their home away from them too! You should think about other people too, not just yourself! If you take away their homes, they will need to be re-housed and most tribes will be completely wiped out!

To sum up, all living things rely on the rainforest for food, medicine, oxygen and more. All of these advantages could be taken away with the loss of another tree. Dilemmas are already happening around the world as we speak! That is why we should preserve the rainforest instead of harming it.

I hope you will understand and agree to my debate.

Yours sincerely,

The Pawsome Lion

A Very PAWSOME Day! #throwback Friday 11th March 2016

Hey there pawsome peeps! How’s it going? A lot of things have been going on at school and I can’t wait to tell you. But first, let’s start of with the most exciting moment of this term!

It was a very busy day indeed! I had club to attend, children to collect and I even did a very special job! That was what I really wanted to tell you. You’ll never guess what it was! I gave a tour of the school to the MP of Warley, John Spellar! When I found out that I was selected to show Mr Spellar around school, I was taken by surprise. Luckily, Anisha, who was also in JLT, was there with me to help me conduct the tour.

As we went around the school, we showed Mr Spellar many things that we  made and wrote in our classes. He admired everything and said that they were great pieces of work. We showed him Year 4’s work on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Year 5’s Viking work and year 6’s work about The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings.

Then, Mr Shephard, who helped with the tour, kindly mentioned to him that I have a blog and he wished to see it. So, I brought him to my classroom and presented it to him. As a coincidence, my class were writing a letter to David Cameron to persuade him to stop destroying the rainforest. Great, right?

After he read my blog, he said that it was a really good blog and that it was a great thing to have. I was so honoured to receive that comment from an MP! We walked around the school for a while but sadly it was time for him to go. He said that our school was full of imagination and creativity. Me and Anisha really enjoyed giving him a tour.

Well, that’s all for today’s post! I’m looking forward to see you again.

Sayonara!
