Across the city, 132 schools participated: an assembly was delivered in each, 13,887 free fruit trees were planted in pupils’ gardens and school grounds, and 1,987 children were involved in planting events.

To ensure maximum uptake by schools, we crafted lesson plans to fulfil core curriculum areas and support out-of-classroom learning. Lessons included outdoor maths exploring Fibonacci and mathematical sequences in nature, and English lessons exploring imagery and poetry.

Learning beyond the classroom is a fundamental part of our core beliefs at Sustainable Hive. There is no doubt that outdoor learning boosts confidence, social skills, self-esteem, communication, motivation, physical skills, knowledge and understanding, and that’s just the teachers!

We’re delighted with your creative way of including trees and planting in curriculum lessons. A really great way to show that nature and the outdoors is such a fantastic teaching tool.
