Once they understood the dangers posed to its existence, the class decided to all write letters to Blue Peter to ask that they make a programme about the destruction of the rainforest so that other children might understand how important this subject is.

The group members were thrilled to receive Blue Peter badges for their efforts.

Jo Walton, year five class teacher, said: “I was delighted that the children embraced this topic in this way. As a year group they are determined that others should change their actions to save the rainforest.”
