David Attenborough writes to Woodlands Day Nursery children
Children from Woodlands Day Nursery in Milton Keynes were delighted as they received a letter from the legendary David Attenborough after writing to him to explain some of the ways they are trying to help the planet.
After thanking David for his devotion to animals and work in shedding light on crucial environmental issues, children from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery in Byerly Place explained how they constantly reuse and recycle and feed any leftover vegetable waste to their pet Giant African Land Snails.
Taking time out of his busy schedule to send the hand-signed letter, David thanked the children for their efforts and answered their much anticipated questions. He stated that deciding on a favourite animal would be too hard, but revealed his favourite things to grow are cress and mustard.
Woodlands Day Nursery Practitioner, Amy Jones explained;
“We are absolutely thrilled to receive this response as David Attenborough is a wonderful role model and an inspiration to us all. The children have a huge amount of care and respect for the planet which is lovely to see, and to be acknowledged for this by David is very special.”
Woodlands Day Nursery currently holds an Eco-Schools ‘Bronze’ award for exceptional environmental awareness and conservation and are currently working their way towards the top ‘Green Flag’ accreditation in the internationally recognised scheme.
