A perfect holiday activity-Making Recycled Paper

Don't know what to do with that Christmas paper, that was used to wrap your present. We've got the answer for you!!! Use it to make recycled paper. If holiday boredom has got to you and you don't know what to do then this might be a perfect holiday activity to do. Just remember to ask Mum and Dad about using the Equipment and keep safe around using the appliances. This is a great activity to do, and your recycled paper could be used for: writing Thank you Letters to your friends and family, Making Cards, Mini Posters etc. When you've finished making your recycled paper, let it dry and then peel it off the boards. Six Cups of ripped paper makes about 4-5 sheets. You can mix your colours together or use separate colours. You can use glitter, once it is beaten up or you can use flower petals or fragrances such as lavendar. Enjoy making your recycled paper.

VIP Poems





It's that time of year again, CHRISTMAS TIME and what better way to celebrate Santa Claus' kindness and generosity is to write VIP poems on him. A VIP poem is based on writing on a Very Important Person. A VIP Poem is set out like this:

1st line: Noun/ Name of person
2nd line: 3 adjectives describing the appearance or personality of the person
3rd line: With what or whom do you associate that person with
4th line: 3 action words (ed or ing words)
5th line: When or where this happens
6th line: Your opinion or reaction to the person

The Room 8 poets have been very busy and from this day until Christmas Day they will be sharing their VIP poems on Santa with you. We hope you enjoy them. If you have got any fond memories of Santa or want to give some feedback on how well we have done feel free to make a comment on any of the VIP poems.
