Year 4 Viking Purses Nov 2021

As part of their History topic Anglo Saxons and Scots Year 4 researched Viking Purses and designed and made their own. They found out that the Vikings loved to decorate their everyday objects so ensured they finished their purses with a personalised touch.
After some careful  practice they were able to demonstrate the key skills of:
 
  • Shaping and stitching
  • Basic cross stitch and back stitch.
  • Gathering fabric.
  • Measuring and marking out to the nearest mm.
  •  Decorating textiles and cutting and shaping material.
The children took care to make sure that their final products were fit for purpose and evaluated them against the original design criteria.
