During our D&T lesson we created decorative plant holders by upcycling old wooden pallets. As Penwortham Girls’ is trying to brighten up the school, these crates will hold flowers and plants, creating a positive environment for the students to learn and relax. Clive, from the charity ‘Dig In Preston’ came to show us how to hammer, saw, drill and sand down the wooden pallets that we used. It was an amazing experience and we all thank Mrs Gornall and Clive for allowing us to be creative. At the end of the session, we all made three large wooden planters, all handmade, adding to the Penwortham Girls’ community. These will be painted or varnished before the soil and plants are added.
