Kingmoor Junior school rounded off their celebration of World Book Week by planting a tree to help the students realise the importance of looking after the planet.

The silver birch tree was donated by a member of Kingmoor Junior School and planted in the school groun by members of staff on Friday.

The school has had a busy schedule of activities and sessions for children to mark World Book Week.

To kick start the celebrations, the school prepared 310 World Book Day packs for students and prepared a programme of pre recorded events and lessons.

The main theme of the schools celebration of World Book Day was focused on looking after the environment.

Teacher Alison Cowie, said: "It's really topical. I think we all have a responsibility to do our bit and sometimes it's easy to assume someone else is going to do it.

"We've got a responsibility to keep our children informed so that they can make a difference too.

"I thought it was a really important message."

The students have explored deforestation, recycling, and the importance of looking after the planet through a book called the Tin Forest, by Helen Ward.
