Year 4- All I want for Christmas is You! (17.12.21)

What an exciting week we had in school! It was DT week for Year 4 and we learned textile designing, focussing on sewing skills. We learned different types of stitches including running stitch, backstitch, and overstitch. We also discussed the use of applique’ in a textile project and how to use sequence and beadwork to have a specific effect on the user. We constructed cushions! We adopted the theme of our Geography project of North America and stitched physical and human features on our cushions using applique’. We cut and stitched a range of different geographical features on our cushions including the Golden Gate Bridge and Niagra falls. We also enjoyed our Christmas concert and performed a number of jingly Christmas songs. We had an amazing Christmas Jumper day and now can’t wait for Santa Dash and Disco on the 20th of December!

Have a lovely weekend. Stay safe.

Kind Regards,

Mrs. Rafique
