One of the easiest ways to help is by growing and planting a native tree. The children in Reception have been doing just that; learning how to collect acorn seeds from around the school grounds and grow their own trees from seeds.

Before the children planted their acorns they learnt how to under-take a simple check to see if the collected acorns were healthy by dropping them into a bucket of water-any that float were discarded as they will not grow.

In another part of the school, the children in Reception have been tidying and improving the school grounds by planting Daffodil bulbs and we look forward to seeing lots of colour around the school in the Spring.
