Planting firm roots

Firm roots are being established by Reception children at Moreton First as they marked the start of their autumn term by planting trees. The annual Plant a Tree, Grow with Me initiative is a special way to mark the start of the Moreton journey for the school’s youngest pupils. Each child plants a tree and is encouraged to visit it during subsequent years and note its growth. The idea stemmed from school’s commitment to protecting the environment through its Forest School and was inspired by a handwritten letter received from Sir David Attenborough commending the students on their involvement in protecting the planet.

Head Catherine Ford, who introduced the initiative, said, “The children have loved planting their trees and we hope that this will help to increase their environmental awareness while providing them with a sense of belonging. The children will grow and learn, sometimes having to overcome hurdles in the same way their trees will survive blustery days and cold winds, but with firm roots they too will grow to full height and beauty.”
