Following the United Utilities work on the field, we were granted access to a tree fund to allow us to plant more trees. The Woodland Trust and Cumbria Woodlands have been working with us to design a new woodland area. Sara Brown spent time in school talking to the whole school in an assembly about the importance of trees, she spent sessions in Reception talking about Minibeasts, time in Year 2 looking at Habitats and Year 4 looking at the importance of forests.
Children from those year groups then spent time up on the field planting saplings. It is lovely that they will be able to look at the field in years to come and see which tree they planted.
