Woodlands Trust Tree Pack Arrives!

As part of the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations, The Woodlands Trust have been offering amazing FREE tree packs to schools. We applied for a hedgerow and copse pack and it arrived last week. WOW! Club unpacked it to take a look at what was in there....


We found that we had 12 of each hawthorn, hazel, holly, dog rose and dogwood, plus a royal oak sapling. All very exciting! The ground was just too hard for us to plant them yet and we need to think about where we are going to put them, so we found a safe, sheltered place out in the wildlife area to keep them until we are ready to plant them all.

As it was so cold, we decided to go on the Woodlands Trust Website, read more about our win in the ARTventure competition and to take a look at all the fun activities on the Nature Detectives part of the site. We discovered that there were some quizzes and we all had a go at them. We loved that we could print ourselves a certificate when we had answered all the questions correctly!!
