Adopt a Tree @ Chandlings

Each year group has adopted a tree in the School grounds. They visit their tree several times throughout the academic year and become more familiar with the local environment. They also learn to identify trees using their leaves, bark, fruits and seeds.

You can view a record of our visits and work on trees on the school website.
