put them on Youtube. Please take a look at them by following this link

To celebrate Her Majesty The Queen's historic 2012 Diamond Jubilee, the Woodland Trust is helping millions of people
across the UK to come together to plant 6 million trees.
We were lucky enough to receive a free pack of 60 tree saplings
which will make a hedgerow in the area between the playground
and the expressway. We hope this hedgerow will become home to
a variety of wildlife, including birds,
butterflies and hedgehogs.
This week some Year 3 children have started planting the trees,
which are a mixture of dogwood, holly, hawthorn, rose and hazel.
The children enjoyed the experience and are looking forward to
seeing them grow.
