The children of Garlinge Primary School and Nursery have commemorated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by planting trees in her honour within their nature area.
Some of the Year 5 children have demonstrated excellent teamwork as they planted two cherry trees and one silver birch tree to mark this unique occasion. Mrs Greenfield, who leads the history curriculum for the school, commented, “It was lovely to see the children working together to create a historical memory for the school”.
Wyatt, one of the Year 5 children said, “I was so excited to be asked to plant the trees. It’s lovely to know that they will be there for many years to come in honour of our Queen”.
The tree planting was marked by placing a commemorative plaque by our Jubilee Trees in the nature area.
This week the children have been enjoying learning about the Queen’s reign over her 70 years and are looking forward to their final celebrations on Friday.
Anna Northrop, Head of School said, “It is fantastic to see our children making a positive contribution to this historic occasion. Our Jubilee trees will enable us to remember this for many years to come”.
