This week in textiles, all of our lower school students have been completing their fabric products, we have seen some fantastic results despite a rush to get them finished before starting to their new technology subject.

Year 7 have worked really hard on constructing pencil cases by using the sewing machine to individualise their final designs. They have finished their end products this week by inserting a zip to fasten them. The look of pride in the pupils faces just before they got to take them home was fantastic!

Year 8 have been very busy making cushions with some very professional results. This involved developing new and challenging sewing machine skills to produce imaginative ideas and useable products. The finished results have been worth all the effort and the pupils have been looking forward to taking them home to share with their family.
