Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Sew much fun in Year 2!

As part of our 'All Dressed Up' topic, we explored how material is joined together to make clothes.

After thinking of all the different ways material can be joined to make garments, our teachers set us the challenge of designing and making our own pencil case. We were glad that all we had to make was a pencil case, as a whole outfit sounds daunting!

Can we remember at least 5 ways that material can be joined together?

We soon got to work designing our pencil case, considering colours, embellishments and patterns.


Mrs Bayliss kindly brought in her sewing machine and we were able to have a go. It was quite noisy and we had to make sure we were being safe. So far we have attached the sides together and are looking forward to doing the decoration, including hand stitching our name next week.

Watch this space!
