Bettys Seedlings - school children throwing leaves into the air

Bettys Seedlings in School

We are working in partnership with Bettys Café Tea Rooms to deliver an exciting new initiative to inspire school children to take an interest in their local community by planting 3000 trees in total.

As part of a wider campaign by Bettys Café Tea Rooms to promote the value of native trees and woodland, we are delivering the Seedlings at Schools  project to pupils and teachers in primary schools located in the vicinity of the Bettys Café Tea Rooms.

The project will focus on delivering:

  • Class based tree activities
  • Seed recognition and seed gathering activities
  • Planting and nurturing of trees
  • The development of educational resources to be used by schools in the future

The project will be delivered across six schools in total. Two schools in Harrogate, two in York, one in Northallerton and one in Ilkley during this academic year. We will work with the schools throughout the year so that pupils can see how trees and the environment change throughout the seasons.

The project was rolled out in schools in September and the first school to be involved was Rossett Acre Primary School in Harrogate.

We have worked with all the pupils in Key Stage 1 to deliver a variety of tree activities such as learning about a tree’s life cycle; exploring the school grounds for leaves and seeds and creating some fantastic environmental art pictures.

Work has also started in Applegarth Primary School in Northallerton, St. Peter’s CE Primary School in Harrogate and St. Barnabas CE Primary School in York.
