WEAVING WITH NATURE

During Outdoor Learning Day last year, I took groups of Year 3 & 6 children out to weave in our school garden.

Making loom

The children constructed a frame with twigs, winding together tightly with wool or string.  They then wound the same fibre around their frame to create a loom.

Finally, they had great fun searching the garden for natural materials to weave with.  They were really pleased with the results.
