Eco-Schools Willow Structure

We had some special people come to our school to plant a willow structure. We got the parents involved too! The children were taught how to use secateurs and loppers safely to help cut the willow. They then used a special planter to make holes to plant the willow. The professionals then bent the willow and twisted it to make a willow tunnel. This will grow over time and create an active exploration area in our Outdoor Explorer area. We learnt lots of facts about trees, how they grow and how we can offset our carbon footprint.
