Enrichment - crochet

Just a quick picture as we are busy getting ready for the Fair, but I promised this young crocheter that I would put her Christmas tree up on the website tonight!

A new half term begins with another group of budding crocheters... There's a couple of children in the group who have already learned the basics, so they picked up their hook and yarn, and off they went. Over the next couple of weeks, I hope to gradually teach the rest how to do it, with the ultimate aim of making Christmas trees. In the meantime I offer the children a weaving activity. This week they have produced some lovely woven stars, or in one case, a woven man as you'll see below.
