The Green School Team was very pro-active in taking the next step with the acorns we gathered in the Autumn. It was decided that we would conduct an experiment with these acorns; those that had been put into the fridge in sealed bags with dampened kitchen paper would be planted out in black pots whilst those that had spent the last couple of months buried in sand outside would be planted in pots that were not black. We will be keen to see which lot of acorns will put out green shoots first.
Boys from 1st class up brought in pots and soil. On Jan. 31st we planted the acorns out. It will be exciting to see how many oak trees emerge!
