Every Monday after school this term, some of the Year 1 and 2 children have been learning how to sew with Miss Simpson.
They have learnt how to thread needles and tie knots. They have also looked at weaving and how to use different types of stitches. It’s not as easy as it sounds because it requires a lot of patience and concentration. However, the children have risen to the challenge and produced some very creative pieces.
To help them further develop their sewing skills, the children have even been given a piece of canvas, their own needle and some thread to practice at home.
The club has proved to be a great success and the children have really enjoyed the opportunity.
