PostHeaderIcon Recycled Easter Hats from Room 1


We are a Green School and we REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE. Every year we have a Recycled Easter Hat / Tie / Dickie Bow Competition.

Some boys and girls in Ms. Downey’s Class made amazing hats at home. Others made hats in school using recycled salad tubs. Ms. Cox was very impressed. Glory, Daniils and Dylan won prizes.

On the day of the holidays we were allowed to wear our own clothes to school. Didn’t we look great!

Here we are on our Easter Egg Hunt around the classroom.

For the school Easter Bonnet competition, we brought in recycled materials to make our own hats! First we drew sketches of what we wanted our hats to look like. Then we gathered the materials we needed and got to work (with a little help from Ms. Higgins and our families!)

We used cereal containers, shoe boxes, paint, tissue paper and wool to put our hats together and we think they look great!

We then did a parade with the other classes to show off our hard work and see what wonderful creations the rest of the school came up with.

Congratulations to our winners (Bartosz, Rihanna and Abigail) and everyone who took part!
