Comfy Cushions

This half term in DT we have been working towards making ourselves a cushion for our ERIC sessions. We enjoyed researching different types of cushions and then designed our own.

Mrs Parton-Harris taught us how to sew using a running stitch. It was very tricky! We had to persevere really well to complete our cushions. We stuffed them with wadding and decorated them by following our designs. We are very proud of our finished products!

The Great Kapok Tree

In our English lessons, we have been enjoying the story of The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry. This story is set in the rainforest which we have been learning lots of facts about.

We have been revising how to write direct speech through using speech bubbles. Look how neatly we have presented our work!
