Animalcare planting event at Saltersgate Infant SchoolPlanting day at Saltersgate Infant School, Scawsby, Doncaster

April 2023

“Today we are here to plant 100 trees in our outdoor area in Reception and our beautiful Forest School grounds. We want to develop children's understanding of different lifecycles of both plants and animals and give them an opportunity to explore nature. We want to give a big thanks to Animalcare for sponsoring today's event and helping to plant all these trees.”
- Callum Howse, Reception Lead, Saltersgate Infant School

Saltersgate Infant School was visited by representatives of Animalcare to help plant trees in the school grounds. Pupils, staff and representatives of Animalcare planted the saplings to create wildlife habitats and encourage biodiversity.

“We've been working with Carbon Footprint now for a couple of years. They assess our carbon and we're here today to plant these trees to help offset that carbon useage.”
- Kai Crawshaw, Animalcare Group

The trees are all native British species, grown in the UK and include Crab Apple, Hazel, Oak and Silver Birch. These new saplings will provide a perfect habitat for wildlife, promoting biodiversity and preserving the natural environment. The children gained hands-on experience of how trees are planted and learned how important trees are to the world in which we live. 

“I'd really like to thank Saltersgate Infant School for allowing us here today and providing us with some really enthusiastic children to plant our trees. We found plenty of ants and worms and all sorts of things. The kids have done a really, really good job planting the trees and hopefully they will look after them for us and help them grow.”
- Rachel Smithson, Animalcare Group

Animalcare has teamed up with Carbon Footprint as part of their carbon management programme and with Tree Appeal, planting native broadleaf trees in schools. Animalcare is sponsoring the planting of 100 trees at Pocklington, demonstrating their commitment to environmental education and their aim of reducing their impact on the natural world. 

“We give the children one morning or afternoon every week to spend time in Forest School. The ethos of Forest School is one of child-centered learning. They can explore the natural environment and plant trees and seeds. We want to thank Animalcare for sponsoring these trees and for coming today to help plant them,” - Jenny Coy, Forest Schools Practitioner, Saltersgate Infant School
