Paper Mill Trip May 2022
As part of our geography and history topic on British Waterways, Year 2 are visiting Frogmore Paper Mill in Apsley.
On this trip the children will learn all about how rivers have been used in the local area to make paper, and how this has changed and evolved over time. They will go on a tour of the mill to see the machines that used to be used and the more modern machines that are still used today.
They will also learn about the different ways paper can be made, both by hand and machine, and have the opportunity to make their very own piece of handmade paper.
The children will also have a look at some of the things paper is used for, and have a go at doing some paper weaving.
