A ‘Sticky Situation’ for Oaklands Pupils

On 7 March, 24 pupils from Crowthorne’s Oaklands Junior School took part in a fun workshop at Luckley, centred around the sticky subject of ‘Glue’.

Two Luckley minibuses transported the children to the school, just in time for lunch, which the pupils thoroughly enjoyed, with one asking “Is it banquet day?”.

They then had a look around the school’s fantastic new theatre, before enjoying some football and handball with the PE staff.

The excited pupils then began the workshop. During the two-hour session, they explored the history of glue and its many uses, before making their own glue in the Science Laboratories. They then enjoyed creating some stunning pieces of artwork in the Art studios, using PVA glue mixed with different coloured paints.

Mr Hill, Year 5 Class Teacher, who accompanied the pupils said:
“Thank you very much for a great visit today. The children came back absolutely buzzing (mainly about the size of the chicken at lunch!) and were very keen to share what happened with all their peers.”
