This term the children in Year 2 designed and sewed their own alien puppet. They started by reviewing real puppets which then helped them to think carefully about the type of colours and features they wanted their alien puppet to have. As most of the children had never sewn before, we decided to practice our running stitch on some spare material. The children learnt how to thread their cotton through their needle, how to tie a knot and how to sew a running stitch without getting tangled. Some children were naturals and others showed great persistence. All of the children absolutely adored sewing and have vowed to take up sewing as their new hobby.
