The Kindy children have continued looking at ways they can reduce, reuse and recycle common household/ classroom waste. As a class we read, ‘Don’t Throw That Away’ by Lara Bergen and the children brainstormed various different ideas on how we can reuse recyclable items and turn them into something new.
After the St Emilie’s P&F held their ‘Muffin and Milo Morning Tea’ we asked to keep the empty milk bottles. With this very large collection of used milk containers and the very kind donations from our Kindy children and families we soon had enough recycled milk containers to make our very own Vertical Sensory Garden in the Kindy Playground.
The Kindy children have enjoyed watching their seedlings grow and change over last two weeks. Some have flowered and grown taller, the basil, mint and parsley are stimulating our sense of smell and we can’t wait for the peas to sprout so we can taste some school grown produce!
Thank you to all the wonderful parents for collecting and remembering to bring in your recyclable household items and to the lovely P&F for their generous contribution. Also, a huge thankyou to the amazing Mr Cogger for designing and constructing a place for us to hang our recycled planters. Such an amazing job, and perfect height for our little Kindy’s to enjoy and care for their garden.
