As part of our focus on National Heritage Month, Year 5 have been looking at basket weaving in the T.C.I. and how we use different natural plants to create beautiful hats, baskets, bookmarks, bracelets and more.
We were lucky enough to have the expertise of Daphne Forbes (who we will definitely be looking to invite in again) to help teach us how to weave silver palm. Although tricky at first, the children became experts in next to no time. We were also incredibly fortunate to have one of our students teaching us a different weaving method with amazing patience- a teacher in the making!
