Free trees make learning fun in Rotherham
SCHOOLS in Rotherham are being offered a new chance to green-up their grounds and make outdoor learning fun with free trees.
More than a quarter of a million trees are up for grabs from the Woodland Trust, and schools can now apply for saplings which will be delivered ready to plant in March next year.
Pupils can plant native trees like rowan or crab apple for a copse or hedge, and grow a wild harvest, or a burst of year round colour.
The Woodland Trust's Schools and Community Engagement Manager Karen Letten said: “We want to see trees becoming part of a teacher’s toolkit, and we'd particularly encourage schools in urban areas and schools which haven’t planted before to apply.”
If space within grounds is in short supply, there’s help available for schools to find land to plant trees nearby.
Schools can apply by visiting the Woodland Trust website at http://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/freetrees or searching for “school tree packs” online.
