CIMG9952 2Earlier this week Class 7/8 joined Class 1 for their Handwork lesson. Having made their knitting needles, Class 1 now spent some time with our oldest class learning how to cast on and knit.

 

Having learnt to knit when they were in Class 1, and currently knitting gloves themselves in Handwork, the Class 7/8 children were now taking their skills to a deeper level by teaching someone else. They were very absorbed in teaching their young partners.

The younger children always love being taught by the big children. There is something very special about the relationship between children at our school - as a small school the opportunities for the children to play and learn together are many.
