In their first handwork lesson for the year, Class 3 collected leaves on a walk around their new school surroundings.
We looked at leaf prints left on a concrete path and could smell the rich aroma of the Cinerama eucalypt and the lemon scented gum leaves.
The brown onion skins printed up well and the children had lot of practice wrapping and tying tight knots. After this, their bundles were boiled to allow the plant colours to fill every surface. The leaves left prints which were revealed to the children's delight as they unraveled their parcels.
