Rugeley School, Staffordshire

May 10th, 2017

“Thank you for the lovely saplings. We had a tree planting day at our Autistic school on Thursday the 27th April, where most of our students were able to plant the tree of their choice with a little help from our Teaching assistants. It was a beautifully sunny day, which meant that we needed a lot of water to plant our trees. We planted the trees filling gaps in a hedgerow and planting bigger specimens away from the hedge at the bottom of the school field. We put metal name tags on the trees showing who planted them. It was a really lovely and worthwhile thing to do and should help to encourage wildlife around the school. Thank you again for the trees. ”

Sandy Lane Primary School, Berkshire

April 26th, 2017

Sandy Lane Primary school received 50 tree saplings from ERS to help set up their own School Tree Nursery in March 2017. Teacher Ali Hatherly has kindly provided an update from the school’s planting day below.

“My class loved planting the saplings to make a new wooded bank for our school diamond jubilee.  They did this with me during the last week of the Easter term along with planting fruit trees to add to our golden jubilee orchard.  This was my final activity with the children before leaving the school after 20 years, so it was lovely to leave something lasting behind.

Half of the trees have been potted up to be planted in our forest schools area later this term. This activity supports a small group of children with behaviour needs as part of their out of class mindfulness time. Thank you very much for the opportunity to get kids growing. As Bracknell in Bloom’s schools and youth coordinator, I understand how much children learn from being part of an environmental project.”
