Having a real Christmas tree?

Are you having a real Christmas tree this year? When you are finished with it Forest School would love to have it. We would love to use them for many things such as den building, weaving, whittiling, chopping and crafting!

Please bring your trees into school after Christmas and drop them off outside the wildlife area (next to the outdoor classroom). Thank you.
