Pupils at a school have planted nearly 100 trees and hedgerows

The Woodland Trust donated the plants to school kids from Watling Park School, Edgware, to help them take classes outdoors.

As part of UK National Tree Week, the tree planting is part of a wider scheme to plant more trees across London.

In what was a former football pitch space in Burnt Oak, pupils are learning about how looking after the environment and learning about nature and outdoors is very important.

Ms Collinson, the Deputy Head Teacher said: “The children have all thoroughly enjoyed planting the trees.

“They were very excited and careful when handling the saplings.

“They asked many questions and are keen for them to grow quickly so they can do more outdoor learning in their own woodland.”

The Woodland Trust’s schools and community engagement manager Karen Letten said: “Trees create inspiring learning spaces - natural, sustainable, and dynamic outdoor classrooms where pupils can mix mud with maths and spades with science while connecting with nature and having fun.

“It’s these lessons that the children will remember well into adulthood.”
