Come and join in some colourful fun 🙂

Knitting and Cross-Stitch Club - continues until Friday 15th July 2022

Knitting and Cross-Stitch Club takes place every Friday morning with Mrs Jack and Mr Rossiter in Fleming Class; it is a fantastic, calm beginning to the last day of the week for our Year 5 and 6 pupils!

We learn how to cross-stitch, using embroidery thread, needles and fabric, before going on to learn how to follow a pattern - in order to create something unique and personalised. It could be a bookmark, a door hanger... the possibilities are endless!

Learning the knit stitch and purl stitch is also on this crafty menu and children will have the opportunity to learn how to knit something for themselves, either of their own choosing or by following a pattern. 

 'You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have!'

They can play games of their choice such as Snakes and Ladders, Magic Maths, Ludo, Connect 4, Stacking Chairs and even Funky Mummy on the interactive whiteboard which has been quite popular! We also provide puzzles and colour by number style activities. They have the opportunity to explore shape with equipment such as Geo Boards, Polydron or the Tangram Maker.
