Follow the sustainable journey of our small school, Croydon West Primary School. We believe in providing learning opportunities through which our students can connect with nature, investigate environmental issues and develop a sense of wonder and enthusiasm for our planet.
Our older students were interested in the cocoons made by the junior grades. After looking at a variety of found cocoons and images of some really funky ones from the internet, they collected a range of materials from outside as a starting point to make their own. They started by wrapping wadding or wool onto their chosen stick.
They added the natural materials collected from our school gardens borrowing some ideas from nature.
After designing, cutting, gluing, organising etc. they all agreed that nature's designs are amazing!!!!
