We have been celebrating national tree week in our classes this week. We have been discussing the importance of and the huge positive impacts that trees give us. Many of you may have noticed a potted oak tree near the school gates. This tree has been rescued from being chopped down and built upon from an ex pupils garden.
We will be planting this tree in the new year and it will have a poignant purpose which I will reveal at a later date. To celebrate it’s rescue and national tree week the children have been creating tree decorations to dress up the old oak tree.
Tree dressing is based on many old customs from all over the world. The idea behind it is to bring us all closer to the trees that play such an important role in our lives as well as to each other.
