Planting in Unusual Containers

By Jacqueline & Zoe

During this semester, the CM1 class and the CE1 class were collecting 3D objects to reuse them as pots. These were things that weren’t being used anymore and would normally be thrown away.

We are planning to plant different types of plants in the pots. The reason that we are planting these plants in these creative pots is because more and more trees are being chopped down. We need trees to produce oxygen and get rid of the polluted air.

After our plants sprouted, we are going do an extraordinary exhibition. 

Rain Forests

By Chloe Delangre and Nina Liu


In CE1 English class we did a project learning about the rainforest and the rainforest animals for example river dolphin, cobra, jaguar, capybara and parrot.  

The rainforest also has a lot of trees and plants. The trees provide oxygen and get rid of pollution from the air. But some people are cutting down the trees and taking away the animals homes and the trees. So we need to tell everyone to stop cutting down and burning trees and protect the rainforest and the animals that live there.

Zoo Exhibition

By Cynthia Cheng and Emilie Laudet

The GS classes did a project about animals.  They reused boxes, cups and other materials to make their animals.  They learned some facts about their chosen animal and made a display including their animal in its habitat and a poster to tell about things like how they reproduced, where they lived, what they ate, how they moved.   

They did an exhibition and invited other classes and parents to come and see what they did. They also made a video of the steps they took to get there.

They also made an art exhibition and charged admission fees to raise money for an animal shelter charity.

Making Recycled Paper

By Hendrik Cheng and Ina Liang

When the GS classes have paper that they don’t want to keep, they put the paper in a special bin. When they have time, they make new paper from the papers from the bin.

The instructions to do this are:

  1. Cut scrap paper into small pieces .
  2. Blend it in a blender with water and cornstarch.
  3. Put it on a grid and use a sponge to suck the water.
  4. Let it dry.
  5. It is now new paper!!

This year, the GS class made Christmas cards with their recycled  paper to sell at the Christmas Market.
