P1/2 have been learning that paper comes from trees. They found out all about the process that turns trees into paper and thought about what this meant for the planet. They think that we should not waste paper, that we should recycle more paper and reuse our scrap paper, and that people should plant a tree for every tree that is cut down. Here we are turning old newspaper into paper pulp – we enjoyed using the zapper! Our first recycled paper turned out a bit grey but we are going to try and refine our technique.
P1/2 held their first book swap of the year. One of their customers was so keen to get some new reading material that she brought 5 books to swap! Swapping books is great fun. It lets you get new books, which don’t cost anything and you can get rid of books that are too young for you. It is also good for the environment – reducing paper being used, and reusing books. The book swap will run every two weeks but remember to fill in a swapping form first!
The chicks are all yellow orange and are so cute. The mum’s feathers are crazy and are everywhere but don’t tell her that she is ugly because that will upset her, (she thinks that she is beautiful!) Sadly the little black chick, Smudge, has died due to bad weather and is no longer with us.
The chicks have water food and little crumb things around the outside of their chicken coop that Alicia made for her Endeavor last year and looks beautiful.
The chicks have to go home for the holiday to Mrs Clark’s house in case their food runs low and in case of bad weather.
Hope the chicks have a lovely holiday.
