Bottle House
The glasshouse made out of bottles was a way that we could use recycled bottles in a positive way and cut down costs on building a glass house.  The children collected bottles over several terms and carefully counted them until there were enough to build the sides.  Thanks to parents and the community the framing was put up and then the children made the sides themselves.  The bottle-house now has shelves and in the next few weeks will have a door and we can start germinating. Watch this space to see the finished result and to see when seedlings will become available for sale. 
Term 2 Homework Task for the Holidays
​Due to there being no spouting on the bottle-house there is a lot of water going to waste when it rains.  We would like you to design a way we can collect the water from the roof so it may be used on the garden, orchard or to water the seedlings.  This project is for all the family to be involved in over the holidays.  All entries to Mrs Stark in Room 3 by Friday the 1st of August.  Get those creative juices going and see what you can come up with.  There will be a prize for the winning water saving system.
