Textiles and Science Materials
Our first experience of the academic year was Textiles & Science Materials. We began by discussing what a material is, then paired materials with the correct use of adjectives. We moved on to the properties of different materials, which lead us onto recognising what materials would be suitable to reach our outcome.
We then learnt about the process of how to stitch and practised how to thread a needle. After this, we then learnt how to sew the cross stitch, design our bags, and reflect on ho we could improve them for our final design.
Our outcome was to design, and make a Harvest gift bag, using knowledge of sewing and everyday materials. Many of us showed great perseverance in reaching our goals, which lead us to creating beautiful bags for Harvest festival.
