Mufti Day - Friday 13th October 2023
Withycombe Raleigh Primary School is one of the elite Planet Hero Schools.
What does that mean?
Because of our ongoing commitment to protecting the environment through JUST ONE Tree Day, we've joined a small but growing number of Planet Hero Schools who are the real planet savers!
Our previous Just One Tree related work:
We raised around £500 and voted to send our tree saplings to Madagascar!
Here are some of the things we did to mark Just One Tree day last time, which was when school was still closed for lockdown.
Enjoying the trees at Woodbury Fort.
Niamh collected some fallen leaves and made a collage... she downloaded the Woodland Trust app to help identify the trees and looked at how the way the trees characteristics can help us work out what we’re looking at!
Niamh looked at the different countries and chose Mozambique as her preferred country to plant a tree... she thought the elephant in the photo looked incredibly lonely and without a home!
This is Hannah and Thomas at Woodbury Common where they enjoyed looking at the trees round Woodbury Fort.
Last time Eloise is donated a very generous £5 from her pocket money! Thank you Eloise - we love your face paints!
Izzy spotted trees on her daily walk!
