Spirit of the Trees Project


A space for schools to share their work. Upload here your tree photos and other pictures or documents related to the theme of the tree showing the activities and events that happened in your school. Possible starting points: How many trees can you name that grow in a tropical rainforest? How many can we name in our own country? Why are trees important? Do we take them all for granted? You could plant a tree in your school and do some cross-curricular work around the theme of the Tree. Tree stories from other cultures...

folder iconStarter activity - How to plant a tree

objects: 9
Our school took advantage free tree schemes run by Kent and the Woodland Trust. We received in total 36 trees and hedges to plant on the school grounds. Our three year 3-4 classes and two reception classes worked hard together. Digging was tough but the children were great athletes and completed their task armed with spades.

A walk in a woodland with my family. We looked at trees and learned about them, some very unusual indeed... Photos and information gathered will be used at later date to plan our tree topic.

planting day

Grade one made crafty posters to learn about parts of plants. They opened and pressed flat paper muffin cups. Then they drew stems and leaves with crayons. Finally, they glued seeds to the center of the flowers.
