Pupils from years three and four at Uphill Primary School have been working on the topic How Green is Our Planet?

The youngsters have been learning about the rainforests of the world and how they are being destroyed at an alarming rate.

They have also studied endangered animals and the threats they face from humans, including pollution and plastic.

Studies on conservation and sustainability followed.

Parents were invited in to listen to poems and songs about the planet and a presentation.

They were also able to see the children's work and find out what the pupils have learnt this term.

Children sold scavenger hunt sheets and asked for donations towards the Woodland Trust to help the local community.
