Years 1 and 2 were asked to do drawings from the world of nature. The drawings were blown up and where possible the children helped to create the individual elements of the design. There are over 100 pupils in year 1 and 2 all of which had an opportunity to create a leaf for the tree, in workshops that took place over a 2 week period. These were made on mesh and later fixed to the wall in their playground.

This project again tried to make best use of donated items, some tiles being bought from Topps Tiles and sealed on the back. Hooks have been screwed to the top of the wall so that the children can hang things.

The project was not funded. The artist Jo Carthew volunteered her help taking over a year to complete the whole project working around her children and other commitments.
