Edge – Sew important skills!

Mrs Leacock and Miss Cross were making inroads into teaching this generation that it is possible to mend and make good rather than always disposing and buying new!  I was really impressed with the focus and concentration involved as this group looked to repair holes as well as sew on buttons…I recall as a training teacher, throwing away a shirt because it had lost the top two buttons – much to my shame.  It was only later that I found out that this was why spare buttons were sewn onto the inside of the shirt…I am a slow learner!  Well done Year 6…perhaps we might reverse a trend of thinking and return to a more responsible way…
