Hermit Crabs - Crafty Christmas Challenge!

Posted: 13 December 2019

The children in Hermit Crabs have begun their new Crafty Christmas Challenge.  Father Christmas has set them the challenge of designing and creating their very own decoration for their class Christmas tree.  During topic lessons, the children have looked at existing products and evaluated their effectiveness; considered the process involved in making a decoration; practised their sewing skills using running stitch and back stitch and have carried out product research.  Hermit Crabs are really looking forward to designing and making their decoration.
