Today Grimsdell celebrated Just One Tree Day. This is a global charity that recognises the positive impact trees have on our environment and the contribution forests can make to climate change.
All the children brought in £1.00 for the privilege of wearing their own clothes and understood that this small offering will plant one tree.
One tree may look very insignificant in isolation – but 194 trees (the number of children in our school) actually starts to look like a rather expansive Forest and can make a real difference to the environment, especially if schools around the world are also supporting the same charity.
Our assembly was all about this theme and whilst our assemblies are still on Zoom for safety reason, there was nothing to stop us from going outside to ‘broadcast’ from there.
The assembly focused first on the beauty of trees and their impact on wellbeing but we then went into more detail about the science behind their gift to environment using props and children friendly scenarios.
We decided trees are superheroes of the world and even gave our tree a super hero cape!
If you are interested in finding out more about Just One Tree Day or want to get involved, here are the details of their website. I hope you also enjoy the photos depicting the assembly and my tree hug!
