Jacob Waddington, Tom Handley, Samuel Best, Finley Still, Lorraine White and Gabriel Wilkinson helped plant trees at Cottingley Academy Primary School.

Pupils, staff and parents at Cottingley Academy Primary spent a day in the fresh spring air to plant trees in school grounds.

The green-fingered school held a community day to plant a number of new trees as part of its Woodland Development Programme.

The school applied for and received a grant from the First Transpennine Express and Forestry Commission project, aimed at helping schools and community groups develop their local woodland.

The grant was spent buying a number of trees and held a special event, inviting everyone to help them make the land surrounding the school more environmentally friendly.
