The Importance of Trees

Plant a Tree 
During our climate change project, we were very fortunate to have 
another guest speaker in to talk about how we can make a difference to climate change. We warmly welcomed 
Steve from ‘Let’s Plant’ to talk about the importance of trees in combating the negative effects of climate change. 
He spoke about how trees suck in the carbon – reducing our carbon footprint (we only have to plant 1 a year to 
help become carbon neutral). He talked about how much water a tree needs and how they help combat flooding 
in the area. He spoke about the important part trees play in enhancing biodiversity in areas. Finally, he talked 
about the best trees to plant – broad leaf! At the end of his presentation he gave every child a tree to take home 
and plant – a very kind gift for all. Please do take the time this weekend to plant the tree (it is the right time to 
plant trees) and enjoy making a positive impact on our world! 
 
At the December Parish meeting there was  section on helping the village become carbon neutral by 2025. The school was 
represented by a member of staff alongside Hayden and Finlay. At this meeting a number of people spoke about 
how best we can help the climate. One of the positive things to come out of this meeting is that the village, led by 
Mr Read, would like to create a small woodland area. If you have or know of anyone who has a small patch of 
land where we could plant trees (provided by Steve), then please let us know and we will pass on the information. 
We would like to thank Finlay and Hayden for attending the meeting on behalf of the school.
