I love Student Market Place (SMP) as it is an opportunity for our kids to delve into the world of making, creating, building, and constructing in order to come up with a product which will sell well.

The theme for SMP this Term is 

"Responsible Recycling"

The kids have come up with some great ideas recycling, reusing and repurposing items from home which maybe normally thrown away.

Here are some snaps of ideas in the initial stages...

Paris and Bianca making 3D letters and covering in patterned paper.

Mitchell and Andre with their Minions made from toilet rolls and coloured paper.

Jack, Ben, Aaron, and Alex G. are creating 'mini furniture' out of iceblock sticks.

Jehmial and his group are writing quotes and words onto canvas and recycled wood bits.

Andre and Mitchel's second venture idea is hotrods made with gladwrap tubes, skewers, and milk tops.

Chloe and Sharn are repurposing wine bottles and writing quotes in hot glue that they are painting over.

I also did a Periscope yesterday of the kids in action ... tweeting out live on Twitter. Here is the video of it...
