Year Five have been getting creative. This week, they were introduced to weaving.
Weaving is a craft technique used to interlace two or more yarns together in order to create a structure. Materials other than yarn can also be woven including: fabric, wire, ribbon and string.
The two types of threads used in weaving are known as the warp and weft. The warp is the tightly stretched thread that runs lengthwise (up and down) on a loom. The weft is woven over and under the warp to create a pattern.
Here are Y5 children in school and at home, weaving.
Some amazing crafts which were used to weave the class together. We may be separated, but we can still work as a team. Well done Year 5!
