In the news, it has been suggested that pupils are not being taught to sew in schools.  In particular, pupils do not know how to repair clothing or how to sew on a button. So Year 5 will be taking on the challenge.  They have so far demonstrated their manual dexterity, with woven book covers and mini loom weaving.  They are now focussing on applique stitching using Science to inspire their designs with images of cells, atoms and all things microscopic.
