Paper making in P1

Today P1 learned about where paper comes from. Since we’ve just finished our topic on Reduce, Reuse, Recycle we decided to make our own new paper from old newspapers. The children loved using the hand blender to mix all the soaked newspaper into mush, which we then pressed into frames. They did get their hands dirty, but some didn’t like the idea of putting their hands into the newspaper mush. Hopefully our paper will be dry and ready by tomorrow!
