This week we started making our hand puppets as part of our design and technology work. We began reviewing the running stitch, which the children have done previously, then had a go at over stitch, and if really confident, the back stitch. We also have learned about a seam allowance to ensure the stitching is secure and stays in place.
The children were really focused and very attentive and showed some great abilities at sewing. We continue after half term with our puppets, cutting out the templates and stitching together, then adding various embellishments to the design.
