Sewing Club

Last term the Sewing Club looked at different kinds of fabric. We have been discussing what they felt like, and what we could use them for.  We also talked about recognising the right and wrong side of the fabric, along with suitable fabrics that did not fray.

It was important to set some rules about sewing in relation to safety of needles, and learning that each child would be allowed to progress at their own pace. 

Each group will be working on different projects with the end product to take home with them.

The Sewing Club received many donations from parents in the form of materials (including felt which we have now used up!), needles, pins, ribbons, buttons etc.  Many thanks from us to all who make donations!

Knitting Club

Last term the P4-7 pupils have been making knitted poppies to form a display which marks 100 years since the end of the First World War.  The war lasted from the 28th July 1914 to the 11th November 1918.  The children were studying the First World War as their topic this term and have displayed their poppies in the village in November.

We are very grateful to the members of the Ladies Rural and Clicking Needles for agreeing to come along and help the children with their knitting.  A few of the children had some knitting experience but most of them will be learning the skill for the first time.
