Matilda’s our winner…and what else begins with an M…?

Congratulations to Matilda (Year 4) who has won the competition to identify the most tree species within the sixteen acres of our school grounds.  Matilda was awarded a £10 garden centre voucher for correctly identifying the species and their locations listed after the photo below. There are over 35 species growing here altogether…can anyone spot one Matilda has missed, with a name starting with an M, like hers? An additional small prize is available for the first correct answer emailed to marketing@hohs.co.uk (clue…start outside Mr Crump’s window and walk along the paths past the school buildings towards the woods and orchard…)
