Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Our mat made from plastic bags is now finished! Read about how and why we made this mat here


  1. That is such a cool mat preps. It is so great that you are learning about reusing, reducing and recycling. You are spreading wonderful messages throughout the school. Have you decided how you are going to use the mat? Maybe it could be your stars of the week mat!
    Great work preps.

  2. Wow, what a fabulous mat. You can't find one as nice in Ikea. It reminds me of the rag rug my grandma used to have.

  3. Dear Preps,

    What a fantastic mat you made from your great recycling!I feel proud when I see what you have learnt and what you have done.

    I hope you will be recyclers forever!

  4. Dear Preps

  7. Hi Sanjana,
    Thank you for your comment. We found learning to plait plastic bags very hard - but we kept on trying. Our teacher Mrs Kennedy had to iron the bags so that they melted and stuck together. We thought this was a great way to reuse plastic bags. The mat is in our classroom and will remind us to look after our environment by reusing and recycling.
    Thanks for visiting!

  8. Hello Ms Cox,
    Thank you for your comment. Mrs Kennedy also remembers the rag rug her Nanna used to have. We think this is a great way to reduce the amount of plastic bags that are in landfill.

    We will keep our mat in the classroom as a reminder to always recycle and reduce the amount of rubbish we make.

  11. Hi pres K I like your voki . We have vokis on our wiki have you listened to them?

  12. Hi Mallika,
    Thanks for visiting and commenting.
    I had a look on your wiki but I couldn't find your Vokis. Can you help me find them?
    The Preps are going to make some vokis next term. We can look at yours first to get some ideas.
    Have fun!
