Teddy bears in Year 4

Distance learning didn't mean the boys missed out on the very popular Year 4 activity of creating and sewing a teddy bear.

At the start of term, each boy received a special parcel in the post, which included everything they needed to design a template for their bear, to the hessian on which they needed to transfer their pattern.  

Each week, the boys waited for the next group of videos to guide them through each part of their creation. They learned how to sew on buttons for eyes (always a good skill to have), different sewing techniques for the bear’s mouth and nose and how to pin hessian together to sew and stuff their bear with filling.

Then the fun starts, as the boys add accessories, clothes, masks, back packs; as many different elements as their creativity takes them.
