Woodland trip for village primary school

PUBLISHED: 16:22 06 June 2008 | UPDATED: 20:35 05 July 2010

BARNBY and North Cove Primary School have enjoyed a woodland trip, which saw them observe aged trees, along with others growing in a tube.

The trip was a visit to the Green Light Trust Woodland, at Lawshall, near Bury St Edmunds, where children from the foundation stage and key stage one enjoyed touching the bark on a variety of trees to feel the differences in texture.

BARNBY and North Cove Primary School have enjoyed a woodland trip, which saw them observe aged trees, along with others growing in a tube.

The trip was a visit to the Green Light Trust Woodland, at Lawshall, near Bury St Edmunds, where children from the foundation stage and key stage one enjoyed touching the bark on a variety of trees to feel the differences in texture.

Meanwhile, key stage two children identified twigs and made map sticks of leaves, petals and other interesting items found in the woods, that were small enough to attach to a strip of adhesive card.

The visit linked work already done with Barnby and North Cove Woodland Project in planting acorns in the school's tree nursery over the past three years.

The Woodland Project is looking for land so that they can plant the trees that they have grown and create a community woodland.

They are ideally looking for land on the village's side of the A146 to enable the children to walk from the school without crossing the main road and to make it accessible to the whole community.

If you can help with land contact Sally Hodge on 01502 476685.
