English - Letters to The Earth



This week's English writing task comes from the Primary Science Teaching Trust (PSTT).  Please read the information below about the task.  If you would like any further assistance please contact Mrs Addison on:   or through Classroom Dojo.

Please feel free to write a letter, but keep it to yourself too if you don't want to share. smiley

Please see the insert below with weblink and the pdf. document below.


PSTT is delighted to be working with the Letters to the Earth team and Harper Collins publishers.

Letters to the Earth is a collection of letters and poems that express human feelings about the climate crisis. In the book there are letters from children, parents, artists, actors, poets, politicians, songwriters and scientists.

We would like your children to add their voices to the collection. By submitting your child’s letter (using the upload your letter tab on the website ), their letter will be considered for publication in an upcoming PSTT newsletter or for inclusion in a future Harper Collins Letters to the Earth publication or project.

The climate science section of our Why and How? Newsletter Summer 2020 includes a selection of the Letters to the Earth along with some questions and ideas about how to interpret and enjoy them. We also include a series of activities and suggestions to support children with writing their own letters.  (Please see the pdf. document below.)


Whatever your child wants to write about is welcome. It could be a letter, poem, song, postcard or a picture. The letter could be written to the Earth or from the Earth, to future or past generations, to adults who have the power to make important decisions, to ordinary people or to other species (animals or plants). It could be written as a human or perhaps from the point of view of a bee, bird, beech tree or another species.

More details about the book and a video can be found on:


Closing date for submission of letters is 31st August 2020.
