The Stepney Orchard Takes Root
We have decided to start our own orchard on the school field. With three trees kindly donated by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, green-fingered Mrs Bayley has begun our project as part of our Grow It, Cook It initiative. We have also written letters to local enterprises to see if they would sponsor more trees. The three we have planted are an apple, a plum and a cherry tree. We want to get a range of different fruit to give our pupils a real sense of where fruit comes from and how fruit grows.
