Hall Green Primary School

Tree Planting

Today the KS2 children at Hall Green all planted a tree! Overall we have planted over 300 trees on one side of our field.

We were contacted by Trees for Cities to see if we wanted some trees for our school for FREE! Trees for cities are a UK charity that aim to improve lives by planting trees in towns and cities. They started in 1993 and have now planted 1,000,001 so far.

We were so excited by the opportunity that Mrs Wall got straight on the case. We wanted more trees not only to make our grounds look much nicer but to help the environment and wildlife which in turn will help the children’s learning in many different areas of the curriculum.

Nick from Birmingham Forest Schools along with his colleague Ruth aided the children to plant a tree each and educate them about the different types of trees and how to look after them. We have planted a variety of trees on our grounds today; Hawthorn, Silver Birch, Hazel, Wild pear and apple, Alder, Rowan, Field Maple and some Wild Cherry.

The children are now excited to watch their creation grow over the next year and can’t wait to keep the trees healthy and strong.
