Recycled rubbish

Recycled RubbishLast week, Kindergarten got together with their Year 6 buddies to construct hanging sculptures to decorate the garden. Kindy have been studying different materials in Science and learning about their different strengths and whether they are waterproof. They gathered recycled materials and made design plans to creatively upcycle these into decorative ornaments. Year 6 helped us to join all our pieces together. Please enjoy looking at our ornaments this week in the garden but please don’t touch- some are a little bit fragile! Perhaps you’ll be inspired to do some creative “upcycling” yourself these school holidays!

Liz Pichon was the next author who entertained us. She is the author of the Tom Gates series. Tohby Riddle was the 3rd author we saw. Tohby is a fantastic author and illustrator who is also the editor of The School Magazine. Finally, we watched Judith Rossell and learnt lots about the Victorian era. Year 6 had lots of fun and really enjoyed the day!
