Foxes Piece School

Planting trees on site

Our pupils have been busy learning about ways in which they can develop their environment. The school is particularly lucky to have extensive grounds with trim trails, wild areas, playing fields, and even an orchard of rare fruit trees. Now, the children have enlisted the help of expert gardener Anthony Henn.  Having appeared on television programmes such as ‘Gardeners’ World’ and ‘Roots and Shoots’, Anthony came to the school to advise the children on planting the trees kindly donated by The Woodlands Trust. He also donated a ‘garden on a roll’- an easy to use kit to create our own planted border. The school council were able to gain useful gardening tips; planting  trees in the new designated area and trying out the garden on a roll.  The aim is to provide a sustainable and varied learning environment which can be developed by pupils today for future generations to enjoy.
