New buds are sprouting
Orchard Junior School have had twelve saplings, four Oaks and eight Acers, planted on the school's grassy field. However, the young trees will only grow to their full size when Year 3 is into Year 6.
Thoughtfully, Mr Carson, the Head teacher, has given each class the chance to take care of a magnificent tree until they grow to a humungous size.
Ellen Horne, in Year 6, says” I like the idea because it gives you shade, oxygen, a nice view and they look beautiful. I would love to take care of an Oak tree because they live to an old age. Overall it’s brilliant!”
We look forward to watching the trees grow!
