There is also an emphasis on recycling, especially with regard to sculpture from packaging; and in using socially responsible Art materials (i.e. recycled and hand-made paper, beeswax, chalk and oil pastel and non-acrylic-based paints).
Our sensory play relies on natural and recyclable substances which do not pollute the environment (i.e. flour and water paste, playdough, salt dough, clay, tapioca, soap nuts, natural food colouring and pigments).
By creating a physical and mental consciousness about resources in our youngest students, we hope to instil in every child in our care a respect for and acknowledgement of the wider environment; and our impact upon it with a view to understanding the finite and infinite possibilities of our precious Earth.
