This term we have been learning about sustainability. Specifically, we have been thinking about how we can reduce, reuse and recycle. Last week all 3/4 students attended an incursion about from the local council and were inspired to ‘upcycle’ items we would usually throw in the bin to be carted off to landfill. We researched examples of upcycling and what various everyday items (such as milk cartons, tissue boxes and coffee pods) could be turned into. We designed our new creations and then set about creating them. Check out what we came up with!
