The pupils, from South Park Primary School, in Water Lane, Ilford, joined forces with environmental charity Trees for Cities by planting a number of orchard trees in the extension at Goodmayes Park, in Goodmayes Lane.

Teacher Celia Samson said: “The children have learnt a lot about trees and the environment. They’ve had a fantastic day and enjoyed it - it’s been very informative.”
