Less people are buying newspapers now, reading news online......thank goodness those that do, are willing to donate them to schools. In the past they would be used for keeping table clean. But by the end of the summer term they are sculptures, technological constituents and objects of great desire. SHOES
Pixie boots, clown shoes, moccasins, flip flops, moon boots. It seemed the list was endless ( unlike the cellotape)
Teachers dreamed of elegant cocktail parties, and long summer weddings.
Pupils worked together in small groups. The brief was simple - one shoe, to fit a member of the team, must come on and off.
The challenges were endless.
Making newspaper as strong as leather without relying on the tape, folding, joining, crumpling, making laces, buckles, football boot studs, heels, bows and bells. And only using scissors for cutting the tape.
We had to stop the children wearing them home!
