Designing and Making with Textiles at Key Stage One (Year One): The Classloom
One of the trial units from the Nuffield Primary Solutions in Design and Technology. In this unit, children work co-operatively to produce a large weaving suitable for display in the entrance hall of a school.
The purpose of this activity is to explore weaving, and to design and make a large woven
scene using a dress hanging rail as the loom. The activity gives a class the opportunity to create a school display resource which can be updated and re-used in the future.
