Year 5 investigated Anglo Saxon bags this afternoon. There were many ideas for the possible purpose of the bags:
- To keep a map in
- For money
- Hold small toys
- Carry a notebook
The children then practiced their sewing skills on some card…that was interesting. They were great at sewing, threading the needles was a little trickier, it took a lot of concentration and fine motor skills.
The children also had a go at practicing drawing accurate lines. The lines had to be precise measurements, which is another skill in itself.
There are designs to be investigated and make, ready for tomorrow‘s lesson.
