Eltham Preschool - Vic

Year 6

Teacher: Sharon Bonga

The Eltham Pre School program balances joyful learning, independent thinking and curiosity, creativity and imagination in a naturalised outdoor environment.

We have a very strong commitment to the environment and education for sustainability. The aim of education for sustainability is to promote a sense of responsibility, respect, empowerment, active participation, enquiry and social change to make a positive difference.

The children used recycled newspapers to paper mache the tree trunk and to paint leaves.

The project involved the use of a range of recycled materials such as wool, fabric, egg carton, sticks, newspaper, buttons, beads, wire and pegs.

Collaborative art projects provide a supportive, creative, atmosphere where social and cultural development and understanding can take place.

The children decided to create some gorgeous animals we see in our outdoor environment
