Purleigh Primary School students plant trees at Stow Maries

Purleigh Community Primary School students at Stow Maries
Pupils from Purleigh Community Primary School planted 30 trees here at Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome, near Maldon.

The trees were given to the school by The Woodland Trust and the pupils decided they would like them to become part of the aerodrome's conservation area.

As an eco school, Purleigh has forged close links with the aerodrome and has carried out several environmental projects there. The children who attended this planting project were from different classes around the school, representing the school community from the youngest in Reception to the oldest.

Their parents came to help, too! Daniel in Year Five, said: "I wanted to come to plant trees today because I want to help the environment. By planting these trees we are helping the environment by creating more woodlands. I will come back and see how much my tree has grown!"
