NEW CURRICULUM FOR YEAR 6
In Year 6 pupils develop their stitching skills further to produce a 3D soft toy of an endangered animal (a whale). The task involves pinning templates onto fleece fabric, cutting out and constructing the pieces following pattern instructions. Pupils learn how to hand stitch the seams and embroider the eye into position. The toy is stuffed with kapok. Pupils can extend the task by making a mini whale version independently and have the chance to photograph their work against a staged backdrop. All practical work is supported with design and evaluation tasks.
