Making Paper

Our Science topic this term is Materials. One question we wanted to investigate is how paper is made. We watched a video about a visit to a paper mill. Then we had a go at making some in class – although we didn’t have the equipment to cut down and grind a tree!

We soaked some paper overnight to make a pulp. We then collected it in a frame with a wire mesh base to filter out the water.

Then we gently squeezed it out of the frame onto some newspaper and left it to dry.
