Pupils from Swaffham Prior Primary School escaped the classroom earlier this month to help the residents of Reach, to plant their new community woodland.
The new six-acre woodland is being planted on land leased to the village by the National Trust as part of the Reach24 Acres project.
Pupils helped to plant a mixture of native trees and shrubs, including oak, beech, hazel and spindle. Funding for the woodland has been provided by the Forestry Commission.
Lois Baker, Wicken Fen Community Ranger, said: “We work closely with staff and pupils of Swaffham Prior school on a number of conservation and environmental projects both at school and at Wicken Fen and Anglesey Abbey. Getting kids outdoors planting trees is a great way to reconnect kids with nature and the countryside which is a key part of our work at the National Trust”.
