IT WAS ready, steady...grow at Churchfield CE Primary School, Rugeley, this week.
Year Three pupils honed their horticultural skills, planting 30 young trees in the school grounds.
The school recently received a gift of 30 saplings from the Woodland Trust, the UK’s leading charity championing native woods and trees.
Class teacher Saffra Gilding and school caretaker Brian Rogers organised the tree planting morning which parents were invited to attend with their children.
Over the next three years the budding gardeners will be photographed with their trees on an annual basis so that the school can track the progress of both the trees and the children as they grow and flourish.
This term the youngsters have been learning about Britain’s native trees. And next term they will be widening their horizons and finding out about rainforests.
