Winter is looming...
During this experience, the children have been learning how to weave. We have learnt the techniques of tabby weaving, knotting and looping. The children have been using a variety of colours to create a woven book mark.
Paper weaving. We spent the afternoon learning about the concept of weaving in preparation for using wool. The children made their own paper weaving examples and practised the over-under technique.
The children made bookmarks which they could then take home and use when they are reading or give them away as a gift. You can see some pictures of our weaving below.
English - The Lighthouse. We watched a video called The Lighthouse. It's a about a grumpy lighthouse keeper who has to deal with a lighthouse emergency. We then used this video stimulus to write our own narratives, focussing on developing characters, settings and plots and including lots of expanded noun phrases.
