In y6 on Friday we started to create stitched/appliqued pieces that, when completed, will be able to be pieced together into a long, collaborative representation of a river course. Each child is making a 15cm square with the river leaving two of the edges at the mid-points. They should fit together so that the river flows from piece to the next.
We made paper patterns, cut the pieces from felt and then sewed them together using both running and 'over' stitches.

By using different shades of green and blue we are hoping to end up with a whole piece that resembles an aerial view of the countryside.

This is a pic of  'one I did earlier' to show the children what we were after. In the next lesson we'll make pom-pom bushes and add the stitching to the 'river'.
