A team of 24 children and four teachers from Wellesbourne CE Primary School planted two silver birch trees, provided by housing association Orbit, in the grounds of the school.

David March, head of environmental sustainability at Orbit, and this team, helped the children by digging holes for the two trees and installing commemorative plaques to mark the occasion.

Jess Perry, co-ordinator at Wellesbourne CE Primary School, said: “The children have loved learning about King Charles III in lessons and were thrilled to be part of the team planting trees at each of our sites. Orbit have been fantastic with organising the event and were great at leading the children – they loved being so involved and have learnt a lot! The rest of the school were also very interested and excited to see our new trees and plaques on our fields. Thank you to all that were involved in the process!”
