Year 6 worked hard this afternoon to practise some sewing stitches to prepare for our DT textiles project. Miss Caldwell was so impressed by their skills and I think they even surprised themselves! It was lovely to see them supporting one another too! Well done!
Year 6 worked extremely hard to complete their project this term. Their design brief was to design, make and evaluate a mobile phone case for a Christmas gift for a family member or friend. Within the project, they developed their sewing skills- mastering the back stitch and blanket stitch to combine their fabrics together- which is no easy feat! They developed their understanding of subject specific technical vocabulary such as wrong/right side, seam allowance and wadding to name but a few. Some pupils even went away over the Christmas break and used the skills they learned to make even more items!
