As part of their Social Impact Programme, nursery pupils at St Michael’s School have been learning about the importance of trees to the planet. The children, with assistance from staff, decided to invite the whole school to gather acorns to support an appeal by Robin Waymouth.

The children are shown how the acorns are soaked in water to see which ones are viable for growing – if they float they are discarded

He is collecting them to help the worldwide endeavour to plant more trees in order to combat climate change. While delivering the seeds to Acorn Enterprises, the children were able to meet Mr Waymouth, who invited them to be the first to plant the acorns in his field in St Clement – and they were happy to oblige.

Fiona Green, head of Early Years Foundation Stage, said: ‘It has been a fantastic experience for them and much learning has taken place that the children will always remember and they look forward to returning in the spring to see how they have grown.’
