26th January 2017

Today the children have been planting trees in the top corner of the playing field. Probably the coldest day of this years winter, yet all children wrapped up and shared the experience. 


We were awarded 50 saplings by the Earth Restoration Service, which is a charity that is trying to help communities and schools etc plant more trees. Our selection consisted of native species including hornbeam, field maple, oak, willow, hazel, silver birch, wild cherry and sweet chesnut. Along with these we were able to plant 50 of the ones that Holly Keane recieved last year. The job is not complete yet as we still have about another 30+ of those to plant. Later this year we will also receive 60 more saplngs in March from the Woodland Trust.
The aim is to make the area more wildlife friendly. The species are selected by the organisations to provide various food sources and coverage for birds, insects and therefore other animals. It will in time create coverage between the school field and the new housing developments. As it grows it will probably be kept as hedging with some trees enabled to grow bigger. It may also provide opportunities for the children to study the habitat and be involved in its maintenance. Currently, all children who were at school last Thursday have planted a sapling with a friend. It was a very cold day but we tried to talk to the children about why we were doing it, about roots and how trees grow etc. The children were all very well behaved and thank you to staff for braving the cold! There will be more opportunities for planting if any want to do more.
We are also creating a Dogwood area which gives nice winter colour, these are from cuttings so any more donations welcome.
The top left corner of the field will not be mown this summer and left to grow wild without planting.

George Royle, Julia (Harrison and Perran's mum) and her dad, Gareth, along with Beth Chapman helped with the planting.
