As part of Design and Technology, we have started to make our hand puppets this week and this involved first learning about some of the different types of stitches we can use. After the first challenge of threading the needle, we began with running stitch. We will be having a go at back stitch and over stitch too over the coming weeks and using these to join fabric and had embellishments to them in our final design.
We were very impressed at the concentration in the children and also their skills that they already have – we know lots of them have been having a go at various sewing, knitting and crocheting skills at home over lockdown this year. Look out for our creations this half term!
