After a very busy term of ‘Wool’ study, the Year 7/8 class have finished the unit with more hands on activities.
Many had a go at knitting– with various degrees of success. We are not quite ready to make a jumper yet, but it is amazing how much you can learn from watching ‘How to’ videos on YouTube and then having a practice and helping each other!
We also assessed our sheep for wool quality – particularly colour, crimp and surface appearance. Our opinions varied on which was the best, but we all developed some new skills!
