Just before the May half term holiday, our whole school focused on our new trees as part of our Tree Champion Day. Each year group took over the responsibility for their tree from the Year 6 Garden Gang, who had been ensuring the trees were watered weekly up to this point.
We looked closely at our trees and saw them in a new way using our electronic microscope, wrote poems, learnt about the importance of trees and how to look after our own trees.
Each class created mulch for their tree from recycled cardboard boxes before laying it thickly at the tree’s base to prevent weeds and protect their tree.
