We really want to develop our school field. Mr Keaney went to the Woodland Trust and we ordered 400 trees!!
Mrs Bradley and some of the children through out school did the plan for a copse and pond. There are about 30 trees in the copse consisting of willow, cherry, rowan and silver birch.
Then Mrs Bradley, Mrs Whittaker and Mrs Crolla worked with with Idrees and Heath from Reception, Jake in Year 4, Jake in Year 5 and some children more children were randomly selected via lolly sticks from year 4 and 5. They are Jessica , Fizan, Sophie, Kudijah, Ruby Jess and Cody (year 5) and Aemen and Suzannah (year4).
It was really good fun! As you can see EVERYONE got stuck into it!
Next we plan to plant a hedgerow along the car park fencing. We are also making a pond for frogs to spawn in. The photographer came on Friday 17th March from the Reporter to take photos
Students helped Mr Keaney & Miss Bradley plant a selection of trees around the perimeter of the school field. All children who took part had to use tools to dig holes for each of the 20 trees and had to get stuck in and get their hands dirty planting.
The pupils worked together as a very effective team and took care, pride and patience in completing the task. Hopefully in years to come there trees will grow, Encourage new wildlife, offer shelter and become part of the schools scenery.
A huge thank you to everyone who took part.
