Paper Mache

Get some strips of newspaper and place them in a mixture of PVA Glue and Water.

Blow up a balloon to your desired size and coat the balloon in the newspaper, making sure you put lots of layers on.

Leave to completely dry. Once this has dried then you can pop the balloon and decorate your model with paint and even glitter.

For all the children who are sadly leaving us this year to attend full time school, we will be having a day trip. We will be taking the children on a Woodland Adventure. If your child doesn’t attend this day they are still invited, so please let myself, Jo or Kaleda know if you would like your child to attend, we want to take all of the school leavers on this thoroughly enjoyable fun day.

Further information re cost, times etc. will be available shortly. In order for this trip to go ahead WE WILL NEED PARENTS HELP, as we like to have a higher staff child ratio on outings. This year we will have around 23 children going on the trip so we really do need parents help or sadly this trip will not happen.
