After making up the art packs for the year 5 children at home, the children in year 5 had their very first live lesson on embroidery from home.
We learnt about what embroidery is, how it was as a hobby within the 16th and 17th centuries, and began learning how to use a needle￼￼. The children couldn’t believe that the PS4 was not an option in the Elizabethan and Tudor era!￼
We were very resilient threading our own needles, with a little supervision from our adults at home. Miss Newton-Smith was extremely proud of the children￼ and their embroidery skills – it wasn’t easy! A huge well done to adults at home too.
As we started our embroidery, we learnt about the Tudor rose and the meaning behind the white rose the red rose as a historic emblem of England
Year 5 – If you missed the lesson, or you need to go through the steps again, please see the live session tutorial which is on Google classroom￼
Looking forward to next week for lesson two!
